Here are lyrics and a sound file to assist chord suggestions.
Jimmy MacCarthy: The Mad Lady and Me youtube

The Mad Lady And Me

Jimmy McCarthy

Among the walls and ruins,
Of the horrid civic stone,
I walked without a lover,
For my older bones.

The sun was strong and going down,
It was a dreamlike day,
It's there I met the trinity,
It's there I heard them say.

Chorus:
And she said bye bye Mama,
Goodbye brother John,
Fare thee well ye Shandon bells,
Ring on, ring on.

She leaned and leaned much closer,
And she hugged them all goodbye,
Her mother said "Don't go my love",
We all must by and by,
A drunken tongue said "leave her off",
She'll drive us all crazy,
She turned around and saw my face,
And both of us was she.

Up on to the limestone wall,
And down the level steps,
She threw herself into the stream,
With a splash and no regrets,
Sidestroke swimming midstream,
Throwing kisses to the crowd,
And everything was silent,
And the sky had not one cloud.

We were swimming out in the sunset,
We were swimming out to sea,
Swimming down by the opera house,
The Mad Lady and Me.

It's easier for people to help with chords if they have both lyrics and the artist's rendition readily available.

I absolutely love Jimmy McCarthy's songs. I know at least one bloke here who wouldn't agree! ;-) If you've never seen it (and I'm no good at links), find Jimmy and Christy on Youtube doing "Bright Blue Rose". Peerless!

Verse:

Em   C    B    C B Em   (2x)


Chorus:

G D C   Em

G D C B Em

Feel free to play B7 instead of B whenever it feels good.


Cheers,
Michael
