## NOTE: G* = 320033 ##


CAPO: 5th Fret




INTRO: C  Am  G  C  F    C    G  C  Am  G  C  F    C  G  C

        Am           G         C          F
'Twas a man from the Island of Skye, they say
     C                         G     G* 
Came to the harsh land of this glen
         Am            G             C            F
With his hands and his heart and the sweat of his brow
         C             G     C     G*  C
Well, he made the land good again


            Am           G            C          F
Through his children the seeds of the music were passed
        C                      G     G*
And the secrets of tilling the land
        Am           G      C          F
And the ocean nearby held a kinship so deep
       C       G          C      G*  C
Giving food up into their hands


CHORUS:
        G                        F      C  G
And the folks in the cities have passed us by
                                       F     C    D    G
They don't know how they got there and don't care why___
              C          G            C              F
But there's a place we recall all the hardships back then
     C          G       C 
Down here in Gilgarry's Glen


INSTRUMENTAL: Am  G  C  F    C    G  C  Am  G  C  F    C  G  C  


    Am             G          C              F
Generations passed by and the coal companies came
        C                      G     G*
And the younger men all moved away
Am             G              C           F
Progress, they said, couldn't wait on the dead
         C           G     C      
And they wound up in early graves

         Am            G                C              F
Soon the highways were finished and the trestles stood high
    C                  G      G*
As America took up the slack
            Am     G            C          F
And there's many a Scot down in old Boston town
        C             G        C     
Wishing that he could only get back


CHORUS:
        G                        F      C  G
And the folks in the cities have passed us by
                                       F     C    D    G
They don't know how they got there and don't care why___
              C          G            C              F
But there's a place we recall all the hardships back then
     C          G       C 
Down here in Gilgarry's Glen


    Am           G            C           F
Nowadays life is simpler, the land now is still
        C                        G   G*
Now and then a few tourists stop by
            Am             G              C              F 
And they're charmed by the fiddlers whose tunes tell the tale
        C            G         C     
Of that man from the Island of Skye


CHORUS:
        G                        F      C  G
And the folks in the cities have passed us by
                                       F     C    D    G
They don't know how they got there and don't care why___
              C          G            C               F
But there's a place we recall all the good times back then
     C          G       C 
Down here in Gilgarry's Glen
                     G               C      F
Yes, if life came by twice, we'd all do it again
     C          G       C 
Down here in Gilgarry's Glen


OUTRO: C   F C G G C   F C G C   F C G C   etc., etc.
