Liam Clancy - The Croppy Boy


CAPO: 4th Fret



[INTRO] 
C   F   G

[VERSE 1]
N.C.          C                F
It was early, early all in the spring
    Dm                    G         C
The birds did whistle and sweetly sing
                          F       C
Changing their notes from tree to tree
        Dm        G            F       C
And the song they sang was Old Ireland Free


[VERSE 2]
N.C.          C         F
It was early, early all in the night
           Dm           G          C
The Yeoman cavalry gave me a fright
                        F      C
The yeoman cavalry were my downfall
            Dm          G        F    C
I was taken prisoner by Lord Cornwall


[INTERLUDE] 
C     F    G


[VERSE 3]
N.C.     C                  F
As I was walking up Wexford Street
   Dm                 G          C
My own first cousin I chanced to meet
                        F    C
My own first cousin did me betray
        Dm       G              F     C
And for one bare guinea sold my life away


[VERSE 4]
N.C.         C                  F
And as I was walking up Wexford Hill
    Dm                    G          C
Oh, who could blame me to cry my fill?
                      F        C
I looked behind and I looked before
              Dm     G       F      C
But my tender mother I could see no more


[INTERLUDE:] C     F    G


[VERSE 5]
N.C.         C              F
And as I was mounted on the scaffold high
            Dm         G         C
My own dear father was standing by
                   F    C
My aged father did me deny
        Dm      G               F         C
And the name he gave me was the Croppy Boy

 
[VERSE 6]
N.C.         C           F
It was in Dungannon this young man died
    Dm    G             C
In (Prassygee) his body lies
                       F       C
So all good people who do pass by
            Dm  G        F      C
Just shed a tear for the Croppy Boy


[OUTRO] 
C    F    G    C
