[Verse 1]

  Em                          Bm
I sat within the valley green sat there with my true love
       Em                             Bm       C            Bm     Em
And my fond heart strove to choose between the old love and the new love

Em                                   G        Bm      Em
The old for her the new that made me think on Ireland dearly
Em                       G        Bm        Em        Bm     Em
While soft the wind blew down the glade and shook the golden barley


[Verse 2]

Em                                    Bm
Twas hard for mournful words to frame to break the ties that bound us
Em                              Bm       C       Bm      Em
Ah but harder still to bear the shame of foreign chains around us

Em                                   G       Bm      Em
And so I said the mountain glen I'll seek at morning early
Em                 G      Bm        Em         Bm        Em
And join the brave united men while soft winds shook the barley


[Verse 3]

Em                               Bm
Twas sad I kissed away her tears her arms around me clinging
Em                           Bm        C       Bm        Em
When to my ears that fateful shot came out the wild wood ringing

Em                                          G            Bm        Em
The bullet pierced my true love's breast in life's young spring so early
Em                G          Bm         Em         Dm        Em
And there upon my breast she died while soft winds shook the barley


[Verse 4]

Em                                 Bm
I bore her to some mountain stream and many's the summer blossom
Em                              Bm    C         Bm           Em
I placed with branches soft and green about her gore-stained bosom

Em                                          G           Bm       Em
I wept and kissed her clay-cold corpse then rushed o'er vale and valley
Em                  G      Bm          Em         Dm        Em
My vengeance on the foe to wreak while soft winds shook the barley


[Verse 5]

Em                                       Bm
And it's blood for blood without remorse I've took in Oulart Hollow
Em                                Bm           C      Bm       Em
While to her grave my love's cold corpse where I full soon may follow

Em                                   G         Bm      Em
Around her grave I wander drear noon night and morning early
Em                        G    Bm       Em        Dm         Em
With breaking heart whene'er I hear the wind that shakes the barley

* the song is easy and sounds nice if you play the chord at the exact time with the 
word. But i'm not 100% sure about this anyway.
