The Sea Around Us – Traditional Irish
Tab’d by wompton
(*gradh geal mo croide* - Old Irish Phrase that is something like "Great love of my heart")

[VERSE 1]
     D                       A                          
They say that the lakes of Killarney are fair
                                   G       A                    
That no stream like the Liffey can ever compare,
        D                           A                           
If it's water you want, you'll find nothing more rare
                         G       A   D
Than the stuff they make down by the ocean.

[CHORUS] 
    D                      G             D      
The sea, oh the sea is the gradh geal mo croide*
A                        G           A  
Long may it roam between England and me
     D                          A                               
It's a sure guarantee that some hour we'll be free
                       G       A  D
Oh, thank God we're surrounded by water.

[VERSE 2]
    D                            A                      
Tom Moore made his "Waters" meet fame and renown
                          G            A        
A great lover of anything dressed in a crown
   D                    A                               
In brandy the bandy old Saxon he'd drown
                  G      A   D
But throw ne'er a drop in the ocean.

[CHORUS] 
    D                      G             D      
The sea, oh the sea is the gradh geal mo croide*
A                        G           A  
Long may it roam between England and me
     D                          A                               
It's a sure guarantee that some hour we'll be free
                       G       A  D
Oh, thank God we're surrounded by water.

[VERSE 3]
    D                            A                      
The Scots have their Whisky, the Welch have their speech
                               G          A     
And their poets are paid about tenpence a week
   D                      A                             
Provided no hard words on England they speak
                G         A  D
Oh Lord, what a price for devotion.

[CHORUS] 
    D                      G             D      
The sea, oh the sea is the gradh geal mo croide*
A                        G           A  
Long may it roam between England and me
     D                          A                               
It's a sure guarantee that some hour we'll be free
                       G       A  D
Oh, thank God we're surrounded by water.

[VERSE 4]
    D                          A                        
The Danes came to Ireland with nothing to do
                               G          A     
But dream of the plundered old Irish they slew,
     D                         A                                
"Yeh will in yer vikings" said Brian Boru
                    G    A   D
And threw them back into the ocean.

[CHORUS] 
    D                      G             D      
The sea, oh the sea is the gradh geal mo croide*
A                        G           A  
Long may it roam between England and me
     D                          A                               
It's a sure guarantee that some hour we'll be free
                       G       A  D
Oh, thank God we're surrounded by water.

[VERSE 5]
    D                       A                   
Two foreign old monarchs in battle did join
                             G         A        
Each wanting his head on the back of a coin
       D                              A                         
If the Irish had sense they'd drowned both in the Boyne
                     G    A   D
And partition thrown into the ocean.

[CHORUS] 
    D                      G             D      
The sea, oh the sea is the gradh geal mo croide*
A                        G           A  
Long may it roam between England and me
     D                          A                               
It's a sure guarantee that some hour we'll be free
                       G       A  D
Oh, thank God we're surrounded by water.
          A            G       A  D
Oh, thank God we're surrounded by water.
