Two Sweethearts lyrics and chords
I heard Sean Dunphy sing this years ago This is the Irish version of an American song that was brought out by The Carter Family. Johnny Cash later went on to marry June Carter.
A[G] group of young soldiers one night in a camp,
Were[C] talking of sweethearts they[G] had,
[C]All would be glad ex[G]cept one Irish lad,
Who[D] looked very down[D7]hearted and[G] sad,
I[G] say wont you join us said one of the boys,
[C]Surely you love someone[G] too,
He[C] lifted his head and[G] proudly he said,
[D]Yes im in love with[G] two.
One[G] has hair of silver grey,the[C] other has hair of [G]gold,
[C]One is young and[G] beautifull,the[D] other is bent and[D7] old,
Thoes[G] are the two that are dear to me,
[C]From them I never will[G] part,
Fo[C]r one is my mother,God[G] bless her I love her,
And the[D] other is[D7] my sweet[G]heart.
My sweetheart is only a poor country girl,
To her I intend to be wed,
But my father said no this cannot be so,
You must marry a ladt instead.
