Oh[C] fare-thee-well, Irela[F]nd, my[Bb] own dear[F] native[C] land It[F] breaks my[C] heart to see friends part,
for it's[C7] then that the[F] teardrops[Bb] fall; I'm[F] on my[C] way to Amerikay, will I[C7] e'er see[F] my home once[Bb]
more? For[C] now I leave my own true[F] love on Padd[Bb]y's green[F] shamrock[C] shore.
Our ship she lies at anchor,
she's standing by the quay May fortune bright shine down each night, as we sail over the sea Many ships were lost, many
lives it cost on the journey that lies before With a tear in my eye I'm bidding good-bye to Paddy's Green shamrock shore.
fare thee well my own true love, I'll think of you night and day And a place in my mind you surely will find, although
I am so far away Though I'll be alone far away from my home, I'll think of the good times once more, Until the day
I can make my way back to Paddy's green shamrock shore.
And now the ship is on the waves may heaven protect us all With
the wind in the sail we surely can't fail on this voyage to Baltimore But my parents and friends did wait till the end,
till I could see them no more I then took a chance for to glance at Paddy's green shamrock shore.
Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore Music Notes
Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore Different Version
1. From Derry quay we sailed away on the twenty-third of May We were taken on board by a pleasant crew, bound for
Amerikay Fresh water then we did take on, five thousand gallons or more In case we'd run short going to New York far
away from the shamrock shore.
2. Then fare thee well, sweet Liza dear and likewise unto Derry town And twice
farewell to my comrades brave that dwell on that sainted ground If fame or fortune shall favour me, and I to have money
in store I'll go back and I'll wed the wee lassie I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore.
3. At twelve o'clock
we came in sight of famous Mullin Head And Innistrochlin to the right stood out on the ocean's bed. A grander sight
ne'er met my eyes than e'er I saw before Than the sun going down 'twixt sea and sky far away from the shamrock shore.
We sailed three weeks, we were all seasick, not a man on board was free We were all confined unto our bunks and no-one
to pity poor me. No father kind nor mother dear to lift up my head, which was sore Which made me think more on the lassie
I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore.
5. We safely reached the other side after fifteen and twenty days, We
were taken as passengers by a man and led round in six different ways, Then each of us drank a parting glass, in case
we'd meet no more And we drank a health to old Ireland and Paddy's green shamrock shore.
We landed on the other
side In three and thirty days And drinking over a parting glass We all went our separate ways We took each comrade
by the hand In case we might never meet more And we drank a health To old Ireland And Paddy's green shamrock shore.
