Thread Name: Lyr Req: Forty Shades of Green (Johnny Cash)
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: forty shades of green

I agree C is much easier.

It says Skipparee in my book, but I think it should be Skibbereen, and Dunadee may be Donaghadee.

The second verse in the book is:
I wish that I could spend an hour in Dublin's churning surf
I'd love to watch the farmers drain the bogs and spade the turf
To see again the thatching of the straw the women glean
I'd walk from Cork to Liam to see the forty shades of green.

I guess Johnny Cash was a bit shaky on Irish geography.

Wassail! V
