Each pattern is to be repeated while playing it's respective chord. (There really are no limits to how many
times you repeat each pattern before changing chord. It depends on how fast or slow you play it.) 

*I personally think it sounds more like the way Luke Kelly played it on the Banjo when you play it 
relatively fast.*


[Intro]

(G Pattern)  x4


[Verse 1]

 G                           C     G       D         G  
On Raglan Road of an autumn day I saw her first and knew
      C                   G                                  D 
That her dark hair would weave a snare that I might one day rue;
   C               G                                D 
I saw the danger, and I passed along the enchanted way, -
       G                           C           G       D      G 
And I said, let grief be a fallen leaf at the dawning of the day.


[Verse 2]

 G                         C              G        D        G 
On Grafton Street in November we tripped lightly along the ledge
      C                 G                                  D 
Of a deep ravine where can be seen the worth of passion's pledge,
    C                      G                             D 
The Queen of Hearts still making tarts and I not making hay -
      G                             C       G         D      G 
Oh I loved too much and by such by such is happiness thrown away.


[Verse 3]

 G                              C          G    D   G 
I gave her gifts of the mind I gave her the secret sign
         C                   G                                         D 
That's known to the artists who have known the true gods of sound and stone
    C                  G                                 D 
And word and tint without stint for I gave her poems to say.
          G                               C         G           D         G 
With her own name there and her own dark hair like clouds over fields of May


[Verse 4]

 G                                  C      G       D       G 
On a quiet street where old ghosts meet I see her walking now
 C               G                        D 
Away from me so hurriedly my reason must allow
     C                G                              D 
That I had loved not as I should a creature made of clay -
          G                        C        G            D           G 
When the angel woos the clay he'd lose his wings at the dawn of the day.
