Verse 1
[G]At the setting of the[C] sun
When my [D]long day's work is[G] done
I went out along the [C]sea shore for a walk
And I [Em]being all [C]alone
I sat [G]down upon a[C] stone
To[G] gaze upon the[D] streets of[G] New York

Cannot yet find chords for the chorus, (Sorry, have never heard the song.) The chords given are from the Steeleye Span version which is attributed as traditional.

However, the chorus is not given chords here either (it's a PDF file). Have to wait for some of the UKers or Irish to post. I think I'm beat. Unless you know where I can find an mp3.

(Em)In the evening sun, when my (C)daily work was (D)done,
I (Em)rambled to the (C)seashore (C/G)for a (C)walk, (C5)(hold)
And (Em)I being all a(C)lone, I sat (G)down upon a (C)stone    (hold)

You're the (Em)bright star of the (C)west, the (G)land St. Patrick (C)blessed, (C5)(hold)
You're the (Am)dear little (D)isle so far a(G)way. (G5)(hold)
(Em)    (C)    (Am)    (D)    (hold)

'Twas on a (Em)cold, cold winter's (C)night with the turf fire burning (D)bright
And the (Em)snowflakes fallen (C)on a (C/G)winter's (C)day,
And (Em)I being all a(C)lone, I sat (G)down on my (C)own    (hold)
In the (Am)dear little (D)isle so far a(G)way. (G4)(G)

The (Em)day that I did part, sure it (C)broke my mother's (D)heart,
Will I (Em)ever see my (C)dear folks (C/G) any(C)more? (hold)
Not un(Em)til my bones are (C)laid in the (G)cold and silent (C)grave    (hold)
In the (Am)dear little (D)isle so far a(G)way.    (hold)

Oh then, (Em)Érin grá mo (C)chroí, you're the (C5)only (C)one for (D)me,
You're the (Em)fairest that my (C)eyes did (D)e'er be(C)hold. (C5)(hold)
You're the (Em)bright star of the (C)west, the (G)land St. Patrick (C)blessed, (C5)(hold)
You're the (Am)dear little (D)isle so far a(G)way. (G5)(hold)
(Em)    (C)    (G)    (C)    (C5)(hold) (Am)    (D)    (G)
