Intro: Am Em F C Am Em Am



Am
Eileen Og an' that the darlin's name is
 G 
Through the Barony her features they were famous
 Am 
If we loved her then who was there to blame us
     Em          Am            Em    Am 
For wasn't she the Pride of Petravore?
 F            C 
But her beauty made us all so shy
 Em             Am 
Not a man could look her in the eye
 F                   C 
Boys, Oh boys, sure that's the reason why
         Em                Am       Em      Am 
We're in mournin' for the Pride of Petravore 


 F         C 
Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
 Em                    Am 
Ever since the day you wandered far away
 F                 C 
Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
 Em                                Am      Em    Am 
But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore

 Am 
Friday at the fair of Ballintubber
 G 
Eileen met McGrath the cattle jobber
 Am 
I'd like to set me mark upon the robber
 Em                  Am          Em     Am 
For he stole away the Pride of Petravore
 F                  C 
He never seemed to see the girl at all
 Em                      Am 
Even when she ogled him from underneath her shawl
 F                              C 
Lookin' big and masterful when she was lookin' small
 Em                     Am         Em     Am 
Most provokin' for the Pride of Petravore 

 F           C 
Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
 Em                    Am 
Ever since the day you wandered far away
 F                C 
Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
 Em                                Am        Em    Am 
But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore

(Brief instrumental played like intro) Am Em F C Am Em Am

 Am 
So it went as it was in the beginning
 G 
Eileen Og was bent upon the winning
 Am 
Big McGrath contentedly was grinning
 Em                   Am       Em     Am 
Being courted by the Pride of Petravore
 F                                  C 
Says he: "I know a girl that could knock you into fits"
 Em                   Am 
At that Eileen nearly lost her wits
 F                                 C 
The upshot of the ruction was that now the robber sits
 Em                       Am         Em     Am 
With his arm around the Pride of Petravore 


 F           C 
Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
 Em                   Am 
Ever since the day you wandered far away
 F                C 
Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
 Em                                Am       Em    Am 
But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore


 Am 
Boys, Oh boys, with fate 'tis hard to grapple
 G 
Of my eye 'tis Eileen was the apple
 Am 
Now to see her walkin' to the chapel
 Em                       Am      Em     Am 
With the hardest featured man in Petravore
 F                 C 
Now, boys, this is all I have to say:
 Em                      Am 
When you do your courtin' make no display
 F                                      C 
If you want them to run after you, just walk the other way
 Em                          Am        Em     Am 
For they're mostly like the Pride of Petravore 


 F           C 
Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
 Em                 Am 
Ever since the day you wandered far away
 F                 C 
Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
 Em                                Am       Em    Am 
But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore

Outro, repeat intro: Am Em F C Am Em Am
