An Irish Lullaby Guitar Chords And Lyrics
Written in 1914 by songwriter James Shannon but the tune is much older. Made popular by Bing Crosby, also recorded by Bob McGrath. The guitar / ukulele chords here can be used on the mandolin. This song is more popular in America than Ireland, in fact the only Irish singer I heard singing it was Daniel O'Donnell. The sheet music notes are included. Also recorded by The Irish Tenors, Kate Smith, John Garry and Bridgette O'Halloran.

[D]Over in Killarney
[G]Many years a[D]go,
Me Mither sang a [Bm]song to me
In [E]tones so sweet and low[A].
Just a [D]simple little ditty,
In her [G]good ould Irish [D]way,
And l'd [G]give the world if [Bm]she could sing
That [E]song to me this [A]day.,,[F]
[D]Too-ra-[G]loo-ra-[D]loo-ral, [E]hush now, don't you cry!,[A]
[D]Too-ra-[G]loo-ra-[D]loo-[F#m]ral, [E]that's an Irish lul[G]la[D]by."
[D]Oft in dreams I wander
To [F#m]that cot again[D],
I [E]feel her arms a-hugg[D]in' me
As [E]when she held me [A]then.
And I [D]hear her [A]voice a -hummin'
To me [E]as in days of yore[F#m],[D]
When she [G#m]used to rock [D]me fast asleep
Out[E]side the cabin [G]door.
This old Irish song featured in an episode of The Simpsons with the Barney character singing it in the toilet while looking for his tooth pick on the floor. It was the episode with the B Sharps.
