Dublin In My Tears          http://dublincityramblers.com/   Capo on 3 for the 
Ramblers version, or on 2 to suit your voice


         G                                    
I have travelled many lands,and I still don't understand
  C                 Am          D
How sad you have become on my return
   G
Your poor heart is filled with care,sad and old they left you there
        D                    D7            G
Your once bright eyes with sorrow softly burn
        C                            G       
I can even sense the change in the sound of childrens games
         D                    D7                 G                 G7 
And the dreams of youth's ambitions have all turned to doubt and fear
           C                              G            
It's an  age of wealth Im told but I've never felt so old
   D              D7          G
As I recall old Dublin in my tears


         G                                    
All the  faces that I meet as I roam each one way street
 C                     Am          D
Reflect the empty statements of our time
  G
And the  old cathedral bell can't be heard above the swell
        D                    D7            G
For the  years erased the message in her chimes
C                            G       
All my childhood friends are gone,like the street where I was born
         D                    D7            G          G7 
And the  time that it has taken doesn't  seem so long ago
           C                              G            
They have faded in the gloom like 'Sap Kelly' from the Coombe
          D              D7                G
Like the ghost of dear old Dublin in my  tears.


         G                                    
There were times when jobs were few,there were hungry days we knew
 C                     Am          D
Some days so bad their memory I've cursed
  G
And the  prayer I said to God,there on board the Princess Maud
        D                    D7            G
That our children would restore the pride we lost
C                            G       
But the  past we all forsake while we're dancing at her wake
         D                    D7          G           G7        
And the  heart of Dublin's dying,but no body seems to care,
           C                              G            
And the  fools as they pass by,laugh to see an old man cry
       D              D7             G
But I can't forget old Dublin in my tears


         G                                    
Gather round brave men and true, though our numbers may be few
 C                               Am                   D
And we'll drink a toast before I cross the foam
  G
For soon in London's dark domain,I'll recall how I became
        D                    D7            G
No more a stranger there, than here at home
C                            G       
But the  liffey flows along and I listen for her song
         D                    D7                 G         G7 
And the  voice of young James Larkin seems to echo in my ears
           C                              G            
But its  just the rafters ring,to it's requiem I'll sing
   D              D7          G
Farewell to dear old Dublin in my tears,
   D              D7                C    G......
Farewell to dear old Dublin in my tears ..

With the capo on the 3rd fret C/B = X20010

There is a step up to the C in the 'How sad you have become' and the
'I can even sense the change' and the 'It's an age of wealth I'm told' lines,
it's pretty easy to work out, and there's not much room, so I didn't include it

..........G..........................G
I have travelled many lands, And I still don't understand
.....C......C/B....Am...........D
How sad you have become on my return
...........G................................G
Your old heart is filled with care, Sad and old they left you there
......Am......................D............G..C..G
Your once bright eyes, With sorrow softly burn
.......C....C/B.......Am..............G..................G
I can even sense the change, In the sound of childrens games
..........Am.................D.................G..................G7
And The dreams of youths ambitions, Have all turned to doubt and fear
.........C......C/B........Am............G............G
It's an age of wealth I'm told, But I never felt so old
...Am.............D............G..C..G
As I recall old Dublin in my tears
