This is one of my all time favourite irish songs, Gaelic Storm's "I Miss My Home." 

You know what they say necessity is the mother of invention, no one else had the 
chords for this song...so I figured them out. Really easy song, just get down the 
irish strum pattern and you've got it.


I MISS MY HOME
By: Gaelic Storm

INTRO: G - C - D (x2)

   G
When I was a baby boy,
     C        D
Me mammy said to me,
        G 
"Don't mess around with them Irish Girls,
        C        D
They'll never let you be!"
     G
Well, I went off to Dublin,
   C   D          Em         
To see what I could see...
    C                                   D- (stop)
They filled me up with whiskey, boys!
They never let me be!

Chorus:
           G
I miss my home!
     C                   D                  G
The chimney stacks and the cobbled streets I roam,
C        D           G     (D)        C    C
Wherever I go, when I find myself alone,
         C                  D                   G
I just close my eyes and the memories take me home.

When I was a little boy,
Me mammy said to me,
Don't mess around with them French girls, they'll never let you be,
I took a trip to Paris, France,
To see what I could see...
They filled me up with Ooh la la!
They never let me be!

CHORUS

When I was a young man,
Me mammy said to me,
Stay away from all those Yankee girls,
They'll never let you be,
So I went to New York City,
To see what I could see,
They put mustard on me hot dog, boys!
They never let me be!

CHORUS
(Violin Solo)

Bridge:
G                          C   D
It's finally plain to see,
G                          C   D
They'll never let you be,
Em                                     C    D- (stop)
I should have listened to all the things,
Me mammy said to me!

CHORUS

And now I am an old man,
At the age of 93
I'm on my way to heaven, boys,
To see what I can see,
St. Peter's at them pearly gates,
And as he opens up the door,
He says you're not finished yet me b'yyyy!
You're goin' back for more!

CHORUS
           C                    D                G
Well I just close my eyes and the memories take me home.
I close my eyes and the memories take me home...
I close my eyes and the memories take me home...
