Belfast Mill The Fureys Lyrics Chords and sheet music
The tin whistle sheet music is included plus the banjo / mandolin tab [ my version ]. written by Khan/ Finbar Furey about the City of Belfast and how it has changed over the years, recorded by The Furey Brothers And Davie Arthur. The tin whistle notes are included. Originally this song was called Aragon when it was written by Si Kahn and is actually about the closure of Aragon Mill in Georgia. The tune is very easy to play with the chorus using the same notes as the verses.
Capo 2nd fret and you'll be in the key of D
At[C] the east end of town,at the[Am] foot of the hill,
There's a[G] chimney so tall,it[F] says Belfast[C] mill,
But there's no smoke at all coming[Am] out of the stack,
For the[G] mill has shut down,and its[F] never coming[C] back.
And the only tune I hear is the sound of the wind,
As she blows through the town weave and spin,weave and spin.
There's no children playing in the dark narrow streets,
For the mill has shut down it's so quiet,I cant sleep.
The mill has shut down,'twas the only life I know,
Tell me where will I go,tell me where will I go.
I'm too old to work and Im too young to die,
Tell me where will I go my family and
Belfast Mill by The Fingal Brigade played in the key of D, I use a capo on the second fret and play C, F, G And Am. The strumming pattern is Down Down up down op down down.
Below is the banjo / mandolin tab [ My Version ]
