Here are the chords...(Heh Joe, I'm trying the <pre> commands...hope I did it right...in case I didn't the bold sylables show where the chords should line up until the allignment is fixed...)~Mary

  G                             Bm
A hungry feelin' came o'er me stealin',
C G A7 C
and the mice were squealin' in my prison cell.
G Bm
And the ould triangle went jingle jangle,
C G D G
all a-long the banks of the Royal Ca-nal.

Mary
Now I thought you might have given Rob the easier option of letting the Prof providing him with the music and chords, all laid out nice and neat as it were.
In that case I shall have to do the blue clicky thing myself
Rob try here www.prof.co.uk/irish1.htm
Cheers
Mick

If you know the tune and play the instrument, can't you figure the chords out for yourself?

Gee, "too shy" you presume that everyone can do that. Myself, it took me years to be able to translate from tune to guitar. For others, it is as easy as falling off a log. And sometimes there is a "unique" chord that might be hard to discover. Hell, I only learned about the famous "D9" chord in blues two years ago and I have been playing for over 30 (my God! that long!) years. You might as well say of a Charlie Patton blues that you know English and you can hear him singing so you should know the lyrics.

To Anonymous who initiated this request.

I am familiar with this song from the singing of Ian and Sylvia. If you are looking for that wonderful 12 string sound Ian uses, you will want to transpose the chords above into the key of D. Then you will want to drop the bass E to D. Then you will have to alter the other chords to account for that dropped D. A little more work, but makes a lovely sound on a resonant 12-string guitar.

I should mention Rob, that unless you have the Prof help you out with the chords, until my mishap is fixed move the Bm in the second to last line so it is above the first sylable of jingle...

I know this one from Ian & Sylvia, but I'm running out the door for a few days of camping. If no lyrics/chords posted by my return, I'll post 'em.

Attempting to redeem myself...These lyrics are from Soodlum's Irish Ballad Book and contain extra verses than in the database...

Mark, if your lyrics are different or there are other verses, please post them. I'd be interested in them. ~Mary

OULD TRIANGLE
(This song, written by Brendan Behan for his play
"The Quare Fellow" is set in Mountjoy Prison...)

  G                                 Bm
A hungry feelin', it came o'er me stealin',
C G A7 C
And the mice were squealin' in my prison cell.

Chorus:

G Bm
And that ould triangle went jingle jangle
C G D G
All a-long the banks of the Royal Ca-nal.


To begin the morning, the warder bawling
"Get out of bed and clean up your cell!"

On a fine spring evening, the lag lay dreaming,
The seagulls wheeling high above the wall,

The screw was peeping while the lag was sleeping,
While he lay weeping for his girl, Sal,

The wind was rising and the sun declining,
As I lay pining in my prison cell.

The day was dying and the wind was sighing,
As I lay crying in my prison cell.

In the female prison there are seventy women,
I wish it was with them that I did dwell.

Nope, you've got all that's on the Ian and Sylvia version plus about 4 more verses. Thanky.
