I | (F) close my eyes and | picture the | (Bb) em'rald of the | sea, From the |
fishing (C7) boats at | (F) Dingle to the | (G7) shores of Duna- | (C7) dee. I |
(F) miss the River | Shannon and the | (Bb) folks at Skippa- | ree The |
(F) Moorlands and the | Midlands with them | (Gm7) forty (C7) shades of | (F) green. But |
(Bb) most of all I | miss a girl in | (F) Tippe- (Bb) rary | (F) town. And |
most of all I | (Bb) miss her lips, as | (F) soft as eider- | (Gm7)down (C7) A- |
(F) gain I want to | see and do the | (Bb) things we've done and | seen, Where the |
breeze is sweet as | Shalimar and there's | (Gm7) forty (C7) shades of | (F) green. ||
