I've heard this song a few times now; I'd love to learn how to play it on the guitar if anyone could give me some pointers it'd be most appreciated.

I can't help with chords, but here are the lyrics, transcribed by me from Spotify:


CRAIGIE HILL
As sung by Rita Gallagher on "The May Morning Dew" (2010)

It being in spring and the small birds were singing,
Down by yon shady arbor I carelessly did stray.
The thrushes they were warbling, the violets were charming
To view two lovers talking the while I did delay.

She said: "My dear, don't leave me for another season.
Though fortune may be pleasing, I'll go along with you.
I'll forsake friends and relations and quit this Irish nation,
And to the bonny Bann banks forever I'll bid adieu."

He said: "My dear, don't grieve me or yet annoy my patience.
You know I love you dearly the more I'm going away.
I'm going to a foreign nation to purchase a plantation
To comfort us hereafter all in Americay.

"Then after a short while a fortune does be pleasing,
'Twill cause them all to smile at our late going away.
We'll be happy as queen Victori' all in her greatest glory.
We'll be drinking wine and porter all in Americay.

"The landlords and their agents, the bailiffs and their beagles,
The land of our forefathers we're forced for to give o'er.
Now we're sailing on the ocean for honour and promotion,
And parting with our sweethearts 'tis them we do adore.

"If you were on your bed lying and thinking on dying,
On sight of the bonny Bann banks your sorrow you'd give o'er,
Or if you were one hour down in yon shady bower,
Pleasure would surround you; you'd think on death no more."

"Then fare thee well, sweet Craigie Hill where often times I have rovéd.
I never thought my childhood days I'd part you any more.
Now we're sailing on the ocean for honour and promotion,
And the bonny boats are sailing way round by Doorin(?) shore."
