Avondale lyrics and chords
A nice little song about Charles Stuart Parnell, Mary Black does a lovely version of this and also Christy Moore , Avondale is in County Wicklow, The video is The Dubliners with Jim McCan singing.
Oh[G] have you been to Avondale,
And[Am] linger in its[D] lovely vale,
Where[G] tall trees[C] whisper and[G] know the[Em] tale,
Of[C] Avond[G]ale's proud[C] ea[G]gle.
Where pride and ancent glory fade,
So was the land where he was laid,
Like Christ was thirty pieces paid,
For Avondale's proud eagle,
Long years that green and lovely vale,has nursed Parnell,her proudest Gale,
And cursed the land that has betrayed,
Fair Avondale's proud eagle.
Here's a different set of guitar chords
Oh[D] have you been to Avondale,
And[Em] linger in its[A] lovely vale,
Where[D] tall trees[G] whisper and[D] know the[Bm] tale,
Of[G] Avond[D]ale's proud[G] ea[D]gle
