[Am]
Eileen Og an' that the darlin's name is
[G]
Through the Barony her features they were famous
[Am]
If we loved her then who was there to blame us
    [Em]                    [Am]          [Em]  [Am]
For wasn't she the Pride of Petravore?
[Am]          [C]
But her beauty made us all so shy
[Em]           [Am]
Not a man could look her in the eye
[Am]          [C]
Boys, Oh boys, sure that's the reason why
        [Em]                       [Am]        [Em]    [Am]
We're in mournin' for the Pride of Petravore 


  [Am]       [C]
:Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
[Em]                  [Am]
Ever since the day you wandered far away
[Am]            [C]
Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
[Em]                                      [Am]      [Em]  [Am]
But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore

[Am]
Friday at the fair of Ballintubber
[G]
Eileen met McGrath the cattle jobber
[Am]
I'd like to set me mark upon the robber
[Em]                           [Am]        [Em]   [Am]
For he stole away the Pride of Petravore
[Am]           [C]
He never seemed to see the girl at all
[Em]                    [Am]
Even when she ogled him from underneath her shawl
[Am]                     [C]
Lookin' big and masterful when she was lookin' small
[Em]                           [Am]       [Em]   [Am]
Most provokin' for the Pride of Petravore 

[Am]
So it went as 'twas in the beginning
[G]
Eileen Og was bent upon the winning
[Am]
Big McGrath contentedly was grinning
[Em]                          [Am]     [Em]   [Am]
Being courted by the Pride of Petravore
[Am]                                                  [C]
Sez he: "I know a girl that could knock you into fits"
[Em]                 [Am]
At that Eileen nearly lost her wits
[Am]                      [C]
The upshot of the ruction was that now the robber sits
[Em]                             [Am]       [Em]   [Am]
With his arm around the Pride of Petravore 


[Am]        [C]
Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
[Em]               [Am]
Ever since the day you wandered far away
[Am]             [C]
Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
[Em]                                      [Am]     [Em]  [Am]
But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore


[Am]
Boys, Oh boys, with fate 'tis hard to grapple
[G]
Of my eyes 'tis Eileen was the apple
[Am]
Now to see her walkin' to the chapel
[Em]                            [Am]      [Em]   [Am]
With the hardest featured man in Petravore
[Am]             [C]
Now, boys, this is all I have to say:
[Em]                  [Am]
When you do your courtin' make no display
[Am]                         [C]
If you want them to run after you, just walk the other way
[Em]                                [Am]      [Em]   [Am]
For they're mostly like the Pride of Petravore 


[Am]         [C]
Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
[Em]               [Am]
Ever since the day you wandered far away
[Am]             [C]
Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
[Em]                                      [Am]     [Em]  [Am]
But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore

Great lyrics, and the chords are mostly correct.

I feel like the lines such as 'but her beauty', 'boys oh boys' and 'Eileen og' should start with an F chord rather than an Am

this tab is not accurate in a number of places, mainly in terms of chords, but also a few lyrics
