  Bm      A    Bm      F#m
I sat within a valley green
  Bm      A       Bm
I sat me with my true love
   D         A      Bm      F#m
My sad heart it was torn between
    Bm       A       Bm
The old love and the new love

The old for her, the new that made
    Bm      A       Bm
me think on Ireland dearly
      Bm       A         Bm       F#m
While soft the wind blew down the glen
       Bm        A      Bm
And it shook the golden barley

      Bm       A        Bm       F#m
'Twas hard for me those words to frame
   Bm         A        Bm
To break the ties that bound us
    D       A       Bm       F#m
And harder still to bear the shame
    Bm      A        Bm
Of foreign chains around us

And so I said, "The mountain glen
     Bm      A       Bm
I'll seek at morning early
   Bm       A       Bm   F#m
To join the brave United Men
      Bm        A          Bm
Where soft wind shakes the barley"

  Bm       A     Bm          F#m
I kissed away my true love’s tears
   Bm         A         Bm
My fond arms ‘round her flinging
       D        A          Bm     F#m
When a foeman’s shot burst on our ears
     Bm      A          Bm
From out the wild woods ringing

The bullet pierced my true love's side
   Bm           A         Bm
In life's young spring so early
    Bm         A     Bm    F#m
And there she died upon my breast
      Bm          A        Bm
While soft winds shook the barley

     Bm        A         Bm     F#m
Then blood for blood without remorse
   Bm        A       Bm
I gained at Oulart’s Hollow
  D       A           Bm        F#m
I laid my true love's clay-cold corpse
      Bm     A         Bm
Where I full soon must follow

And o’er her grave I wandered drear
      Bm        A       Bm
Noon, night and morning early
        D       A          B      F#m
With a breaking heart when e'er I hear
    Bm         A         Bm
The wind that shakes the barley
