[Verse 1]

              G                       C
I’ve met some folk who say that I'm a dreamer
    Am7     D7                               G
And I’ve no doubt there's truth in what they say
D   D11    G      G7       G7+ C
But sure a body's bound to be a dreamer
     A7      D7                       G  C
When all the things he loves are far away

[Verse 2]

G   D11      G                         C
And precious things are dreams unto an exile
     Am7      D7                       G
They take him o’er the land across the sea
D  D11      G       G7      G7+   C
Es-pecially when it happens he's an exile
     A7        D7                  G
From that dear lovely Isle of Innisfree

[Chorus 1]

    Am7  Bm  C                          G
And when the moonlight peeps across the rooftops
              A7                     D7
Of this great city, wondrous tho' it be
  D11      G        G7     G7+  C
I scarcely feel its wonder or its laughter
    A7     D7                      G   C
I'm once a-gain back home in Innis-free

[Verse 3]

G D11    G                               C
I wander o’er green hills through dreamy valleys
    Am7    D7                        G
And find a peace no other land could know
D D11      G          G7    G7+   C
I hear the birds make music fit for angels
    A7        D7                      G   C
And watch the rivers laughing as they flow

[Verse 4]

G   D       G                   C
And then in-to a humble shack I wan-der,
   Am7      D7                    G
My dear old home, and tenderly be-hold.
D   D11     G      G7        G7+     C
The folks I love a-round the turf fire gathered,
   A7     D7                    G   C
On bended knees their rosary is told

[Chorus 2]

G   Am7    Bm    C                               G
But dreams don't last, though dreams are not for-gotten
             A7                   D7
And soon I'm back to stern realit-y
    D11         G         G7       G7+     C
But though they paved the footways here with gold dust
  A7          D7                      G   C G
I still would choose my Isle of Innis-free
