 "Tell Me Ma" (Trad/Arr. GS)
 From "Gaelic Storm" (1998)

 All verses and breaks follow the
 structure of the opening chorus.


 Intro: G, followed by verse chords.

      G              Cadd9 G
 I'll tell me ma when I go home,
     D7                    G
 The boys won't leave the girls alone
 G                        Cadd9    G
 They pull my hair, they stole my comb,
     D7                    G
 But that's all right 'til I go home
 G                Cadd9
 She is handsome, she is pretty,
 G                  D7
 She's the belle of Belfast City,
 G                 C
 She is courtin', a one, two, three
 G                       D7      G     
 Please won't you tell me who is she?

 Break over verse chorus chords

 Now Albert Mooney says he loves her,
 An' all the boys are fighting for her.
 Knocking on the door and they're ringing on the bell,
 Saying, "Oh my true love, are you well?"
 Down she comes as white as snow
 With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes.
 Old Johnny Murphy says she'll die
 If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye

 CHORUS, Break over Verse\chorus chords.

 Let the wind and the rain and the hail come high,
 And the snow come shoveling from the sky.
 She's as nice as apple pie,
 She'll get her own lad by and by!
 an' |When she gets a lad of her own
 She won't tell her ma when she comes home.
 Let them all come as they will
 It's Patrick Murphy she loves still!

 CHORUS, with the "she is..." part 
 repeated twice
 
 Ending: |G C G| D7 G|
