[Verse 1]
  Dm             Gm     Am       Dm      C       Dm
I sat within the valley green, I sat me with my true love
   Dm                   Gm      Am       Dm       C       Dm
My sad heart strove the two between, the old love and the new love
    Dm                C                Bb                A
The old for her, the new that made me think on Ireland dearly
      Dm        Gm        Dm       Am        Dm       C     Dm
While soft the wind blew down the glen and shook the golden barley 

[Verse 2]
      Dm              Gm        Am       Am        C         Dm   
'Twas hard the woeful words to frame to break the ties that bound us
    Dm               Gm       Am       Dm       C      Dm
But harder still to bear the shame of foreign chains around us
    Dm                C                 Bb              A
And so I said, "The mountain glen I'll seek at morning early
     Dm       Gm    Dm   Am          Dm          C        Dm
And join the bold united men, while soft winds shake the barley" 

[Verse 3]
      Dm            Gm       Am        Dm        C         Dm
While sad I kissed away her tears, my fond arms round her flinging
     Dm                 Gm      Am       Dm       C        Dm
The foeman's shot burst on our ears from out the wildwood ringing
   Dm                C                   Bb                     A
A bullet pierced my true love's side in life's young spring so early
    Dm      Gm       Dm        Am         Dm          C        Dm
And on my breast in blood she died while soft winds shook the barley 

[Verse 4]
  Dm                Gm        Am        Dm         C      Dm
I bore her to some mountain stream and many's the summer blossom
   Dm                   Gm       Am    Dm        C            Dm
I placed with branches soft and green about her blood-stained bosom
   Dm                  C                     Bb                  A
I wept and kissed her clay-cold corpse then rushed o'er vale and valley
    Dm       Gm     Dm      Am         Dm         C        Dm
My vengeance on the foe to wreak while soft wind shook the barley

[Verse 5]
     Dm                 Gm     Am        Dm       C      Dm
But blood for blood without remorse I've taken at Oulart Hollow
     Dm                  Gm        Am          Dm      C       Dm
And laid my true love's clay cold corpse where I here soon may follow
    Dm                C                   Bb              A
As round her grave I wander drear, noon, night and early morning
      Dm       Gm        Dm      Am      Dm         C         Dm
With breaking heart when e'er I hear the wind that shakes the barley
      Dm       Gm        Dm      Am      Dm         C         Dm
With breaking heart when e'er I hear the wind that shakes the barley
