[Verse 1]
            Am7                D/A
Tá bean in Éirinn a phronnfadh séad domh
       Am         D/A
Is mo sháith le n-ól
               Am7                 D/A
Is tá bean in Éirinn is ba bhinne léithe
   Cadd9   D              G
Mo ráfla ceoil ná seinm théad
             Em              Dsus2     Cadd9
Atá bean in Éirinn is níorbh fhearr léi beo
             Am7               D         Cadd9  D    G
Mise ag léimnigh nó leagtha i gcré is mo thárr faoi fhód

Tá bean in Éirinn a bheadh ag éad liom
        Am7           D
Mur' bhfaighfinn ach póg
            Am7        Cadd9     D
Ó bhean ar aonach, nach ait an scéala,
      Cadd9        D                G
Is mo dháimh féin leo, tá bean ab fhearr liom
            Em               Dsus2     Cadd9
Nó cath is céad dhíobh nach bhfagham go deo
                   Am7   Cadd9       D
Is tá cailín spéiriúil ag fear gan Bhéarla,
     Cadd9 D   G
Dubhghránna   cróin

     Am            D/A
Go bhfaighinn an t-ór
                Am7             D/A
Is tá bean 'na léine is fearr a méin
      Cadd9  D               G
Ná na táinte bó le bean a bhuairfeadh
         Em        Dsus2       Cadd9
Baile an Mhaoir is clár Thír Eoghain,
                Am7                 D/A      Cadd9    D  G
Is ní fheicim leigheas ar mo ghalar féin ach scaird a dh'ól


There's a woman in Ireland who'd give me a gem,
And my fill to drink,
There's a woman in Ireland,
To whom my singing is sweeter than the music of strings,
There's a woman in Ireland,
Who would much prefer me leaping,
Than laid in the clay and my belly under the sod

There's a woman in Ireland who'd envy me,
If I got naught but a kiss from a woman at a fair,
Isn't it strange and the love I have for them,
There's a woman I'd prefer to a battalion,
And a hundred of them whom I will never get,
And an ugly, swarthy man with no English has a beautiful girl

There's a woman who would say,
That if I walked with her I'd get the gold,
And there's the woman of the shirt
Whose mien is better than herds of cows,
With a woman who would deafen Baile an Mhaoir
And the plain of Tyrone,
And I see no cure for my disease, but to have a drink
