Cherish The Ladies - The Green Fields Of Canada



[Verse 1]
    C           G             F          Am
Farewell to the groves of shillelagh and shamrock
    C           Dm           F            Am
Farewell to the wee girls of Ireland all 'round
         C            G        F            Am
May your hearts be as merry as ever I would wish them
     C         Dm             F         Am
When far, far away across the ocean I'm bound


[Verse 2]
       F         Dm          G               Am
Oh, my father is old, and my mother is quite feeble
   F               Dm          G                   Am  G
To leave their own country, it grieves their heart sore__
        F              Dm                F               Am
Oh, the tears in great drops, down their cheeks they are rolling
   F               Dm   G                Am      F  G
To think they must die upon some foreign shore


[Verse 3]
         C          Dm          F            Am
But what matters to me where my bones may be buried
      C            G          F            Am
If in peace and contentment I can spend my life
        C               G            F         Am
Oh, the green fields of Canada, they daily are blooming
         C                 Dm        F            Am
And it's there I'll put an end to my miseries and strife


[Verse 4]
   F            Dm             G        Am
So pack up your sea-stores and tarry no longer
    F         Dm         G        Am G
Ten dollars a week isn't very bad pay__
       F         Dm          F            Am
With no taxes or tithes to devour up your wages
     F             Dm              G   Am
When you're on the green fields of Canada


[Instrumental]
Am  Em  F  G  F  C  Am
F  Em  F  G  F  C  Am


[Verse 5]
    C           G              F              Am
The sheep run unshorn, and the land's gone to rushes
    C           Dm            F          Am
The handyman is gone, and the winders of creels
 C              G        F          Am
Away across the ocean go journeyman tailors
    C             Dm           F            Am
And fiddlers that play out the old mountain reels


[Verse 6]
    F           Dm        G           Am
Farewell to the dances in homes now deserted
     F               Dm            G               Am G
When tips struck the lightening in sparks from the floor
    F          Dm          F           Am
The paving and crigging of hobnails on flagstones
    F            Dm           G           Am    F  Am  F
The tears of the old folk and shouts of encore


[Verse 7]
        C             G           F         Am
For the landlords and bailiffs in vile combination
     C              Dm              F          Am
Have forced us from hearthstone and homestead away
        C          G           F            Am
May the crowbar brigade all be doomed to damnation
     C            Dm              F   Am
When we're on the green fields of Canada


[Verse 8]
         F         Dm           G         Am
And it's now to conclude and to finish my story
       F               Dm       G         Am G
And if e'er friendless Irishmen chance my way__
         F           Dm            F             Am
With the best in the house, I will treat him and welcome
   F           Dm              G   Am  F  Am  F
At home in the green fields of Canada
