The Sun Is Burning Lyrics And Chords
The sheet music and tin whistle notes for this folk song from England are included.Recorded by The Dubliners, Written by Ian Campbell, And recorded by The Dubliners with Luke Kelly singing. I have included the guitar chords in the same key that Luke sings the song in. The song was also recorded by Simon And Garfunkel, The Brennan Sisters, Christy Moore and The Wolfe Tones.
The[G] sun is[C] burning in the[G] sky,
Strands of[C] clouds go slowly drifting[D] by.
In[G] the park the dreamy bees are droning in[C] the flowers among the trees
[D]And[G] the[C] sun burns in the[G] sky.
Now the sun is in the west,
Little babes lie down to take their rest,
And the couples in the park are holding hands and waiting for the dark
And the sun is in the west.
Now the sun is sinking low,
Children playing know it's time to go.
High above a spot appears, a little blossom blooms and then draws near
And the sun is sinking low.
Now the sun has come to earth
Shrouded in a mushroom cloud of death.
Death comes in a blinding flash of hellish heat and leaves a smear of ash
And the sun has come to earth.
Now the sun has disappeared
All that's left is darkness, pain and fear.
Twisted sightless wrecks of men go crawling on their knees and cry in pain
And the sun has disappeared.
Here are the guitar chords that are played by Luke Kelly with The Dubliners
The[D] sun is[G] burning [D]in [C]the[D] sky,
[G]Strands of clouds go [C]slowly drifting[Am] by[D].
In the [G]park the [C]dreamy [D]bees are [G]droning in the flowers a[D]mong the [C]trees[D]
And the[G] sun [D]is burns [C]in the[D] sky[G][C][G].
[D]Now the [G]sun is [C]in the [G]west,
Little babes lie [C]down to take their [D]rest,
And the [G]couples [C]in the [D]park are [G]holding [D]hands and [G]waiting for the [C]dark
[D]And the [G]sun is [C]in the [G]west.
Here's the sheet music with tin whistle notes.
