Is it the fiddle version similar to the one at this website ? :

If this is the one you mean, I can send you the chords that I use to accompany it...

Karen.....

I have the chords to the Clancy Bros. (slow version). In their songbook they start off with Cm, but I find it easier in this position. Great song, but so sad. I don't think the reel tempo (i.e., Wind that Shakes the Corn) does it justice.

I [Am]sat with-[Dm]in the [Am]valley [Em]green, I [Am]sat me [Em]with my true [Am]love. My [Am]sad heart [Dm]strove to [Am]choose be-[Em]tween The [Am]old love [Em]and the [Am]new love. The [Am]old for her, the [F#]new that made Me [Am]think on Ireland [Em]dearly, While [Am]soft the [Dm]wind blew [Am]down the [Em]glen, And [Am]shook the [Em]golden [Am]barley.

Let's try that again. I guess it's been a while since I posted lyrics.

I [Am]sat with-[Dm]in the [Am]valley [Em]green,
I [Am]sat me [Em]with my true [Am]love.
My [Am]sad heart [Dm]strove to [Am]choose be-[Em]tween
The [Am]old love [Em]and the [Am]new love.
The [Am]old for her, the [F#]new that made
Me [Am]think on Ireland [Em]dearly,
While [Am]soft the [Dm]wind blew [Am]down the [Em]glen,
And [Am]shook the [Em]golden [Am]barley.

To me, the F# sounds strange, and I would better play simply a C instead. But I may know a different melody.
