Cara Dillon - The Streets Of Derry

[INTRO:] G  D  G    C  D    G  D    C  D

[VERSE 1:]
N.C.      D   G          C            D
After the morning, there comes an evening
    C         G   C     D      C
And after the evening, another day
N.C.        D     C           G       D    G
And after a false love, there comes a true love
    C        G      C      D
I'd have you listen now to what I say

[VERSE 2:]
 G          D    G      C            D
"I swear my love is the finest young man
   C       G C     D          C
As fair as any the sun shines on
    D           C      G      D    G
But how to save him, I do not know it
    C      G     C        D
For he has got a sentence to be hung"

[VERSE 3:]
N.C.      D    G       C             D
As he was marching the streets of Derry
  C       G       C         D     C
I own, he marched up, right manfully
                D    C    G       D   G  
Being much more like a commanding officer
       C      G    C       D
Than a man to die upon the gallows tree

[VERSE 4:]
N.C.           D     G        C          D
"What keeps my love, she's so long in coming
    C      G     C       D         C
Oh, what detains her, so long from me
            D     Am   C        D   G
Or does she think it a shame or scandal
   C      G    C       D
To see me die upon the gallows tree"

[VERSE 5:]
N.C.       D     G      C          D
He looked around and he saw her coming
    C       G       C      D       C
And she was dressed all in woollen fine
          D     C    G           D  G
The weary steed that my love was riding
   C         G    C  D
It flew more swiftly than the wind

[INSTRUMENTAL:] D    G   C  D    G  D   Am  C  D   (2x)

[VERSE 6:]
N.C.             D    G         C        D
"Come down, come down from that cruel gallows
     C        G  C   D        C
I've got your pardon from the king
                  D   C         G        D    G
And I'll let them see that they dare not hang you
         C        G    C      D
And I'll crown my love with a bunch of green"

thanks for posting this song, it's one of my favorite songs to sing so I'm looking forward to get used to playing it on guitar now(I'm just a novice). in verse 3 change "I own" to "high on" to have the correct words. thanks again,👍👍👍
