Déanta - The Green Fields Of Canada

[Verse 1]
So pack up your sea-stores, consider no longer

For ten dollars a week isn't very bad pay
With no taxes or tithes to devour up your wages

When you're on the green fields of Amerikay

[Verse 2]
    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 3]
         F         Dm          G               Am
Well, me father is old, and me 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 4]
    C           G                F              Am
The sheep run unsheared, and the land's gone to rushes
    C          Dm            F         Am
The handyman's gone, and the winder of creels
 C              G        F          Am
Away across the ocean go journeyman tailors
    C             Dm             F            Am
And fiddlers that played out the old mountain reels

[Verse 5]
        C          G            F           Am
Ah, but I mind the day when old Ireland was flourishing
         C            Dm            F             Am
And when lots of hard tradesmen did work for good pay
        C             G              F             Am
Ah, but since our manufacturies have crossed the Atlantic
          C             Dm        F    Am
Sure it's there we must follow to Amerikay

[Verse 6]
         F         Dm           G         Am
And it's now to conclude and to finish my story
   F               Dm       G          Am G
If ever friendless Irishmen chances my way__
         F           Dm            F             Am
With the best in the house, I will greet him and welcome
     F          Dm              G    Am
Far away on the green fields of Amerikay
