Sligo Fair by Jonathan Kelly

Tuning: EADGBE

Like the other tabs I’ve done (although they’re not technically tabs of course) this
chord names as they would be without a capo. But for this and The Ballad or Cursed Anna,
capo second fret on the original LP/CD. Enjoy.

Intro: Am7, Em7, Am7, Em7, Am7,
Am7, Em7

Am					                                                            Fmaj7

She goes down to meet her Mam(?), returning from the fields.

Am					                                                   Fmaj7

A wicker basket on her arm and a spaniel at her heels.

	G		                 Am
   Bb	            Am     Em

And as she picks wild flowers she wonders should she go or stay.

	                 Am    Em     Am	    Em	      Am

Now that Sligo Fair is just a week away.


Am7, Em7, Am7, Em7

Am					                                                     Fmaj7

Her mind is on the back seat of the traveller’s caravan

Am				                                        F maj7

Headed for the city and to a new life she could plan.

          G		                          Am
      Am	          Em

With no more days of waiting for her man to name the day.

	                 Am    Em      Am      Em      Am

Now that Sligo Fair is just a week away.


(bridge)

E		                     Emaj7	             A 	        E

Hard to be a woman in the country life.

	A		                                      E
                          E

She don’t wanna be a milkmaid, she don’t wanna be a milkmaid.


         Bbmaj7	Am7   D

She wants to be a wife...


Em7...


Am					                                                      Fmaj7

Way above the Northern coast, the seagulls circle high.

      Am				                                                 Fmaj7

As to the West the sinking sun spills gold across the sky.

	G			                                           Am
       Bb       Am        Em

And homeward wends the Friesian herd to the ending of their day.

	Am            Em      Am      Em       Am

And Sligo Fair is just a week away.

(bridge)


E		                    Emaj7	              A	         E

Hard to be a woman in the country life.

	A		                                     E
                          E

She don’t wanna be a milkmaid, she don’t wanna be a milkmaid.

         Bbmaj7 Am7   D

She wants to be a wife...

Em7...

Am					                                                      Fmaj7

She goes down to meet her Mam, returning from the fields.

      Am				                                              Fmaj7

A wicker basket on her arm and a spaniel at her heels.

        G			                           Am
    Bb            Am     Em

And as she picks wild flowers she wonders should she go or stay.

	      Am               Em      Am

Now that Sligo Fair is just

 Am    Em      Am

Sligo Fair is just

Am     Em      Am		                  Fmaj7

Sligo Fair is just a week away.

Am7 Em7 etc. to fade

Hi dcoxell

The words of the first line are "She goes down to meet her man"
I learned this song from J K at a Club in the early 70s

Hope you don't mind my interjection
