Carrigdhoun Lyrics And Chords
Written by Denny Lane and recorded by Cherish The Ladies but the video I've chosen is the great Mary O'Hara. traditional Irish, A song you don't hear much of anymore. The sheet music is also included. Mary O'Hara also done a little singing in her big movie The Quiet Man where she sits and plays piano in the little thatched cottage. All through that movie The Isle Of Innisfree Song can be heard in the background, which really made that film.
[G]On Carrigdhoun the[D] heath is[G] brown,
The[D] sky is dark over Ardna[G]lee
And[G] many’s the stream[Am] comes rushing[C] down
To[D7] swell the angry Owena[G]bwee.
The[C] moaning blast goes sweeping[G] fast
Thru’ many’s the[A7] leafless[D7] tree
And[G] I’m alone, for[G7] he is[C] gone,
My[D] hawk is flown, oc[C]hón, mo[G] chroí!
The heath is green on Carrigdhoun,
Bright shines the sun over Ardnalee.
The light green trees bent trembling down
To kiss the slumbering Owenabwee.
That happy day ‘twas but last May,
It’s like a dream to me.
When Domhnall swore, aye o’er and o’er,
We’d part no more, a stór mo chroí.
Soft April showers and bright May flowers
Will bring the summer back again.
But will they bring me back the hours
I spent with my brave Domhnall then
‘Tis but a chance, he’s gone to France,
To wear the Fleur-de-Lis.
I’d follow you, my Domhnall dhú,
For still I’m true to you, a chroí.
Here are alternative guitar chords for the key of D Major.
[D]On Carrigdhoun the[A] heath is[D] brown,
The[A] sky is dark over Ardna[D]lee
And[D] many’s the stream[Em] comes rushing[G] down
To[A7] swell the angry Owena[D]bwee.
The[G] moaning blast goes sweeping[D] fast
Thru’ many’s the[E7] leafless[A7] tree
And[D] I’m alone, for[D7] he is[G] gone,
My[A] hawk is flown, oc[G]hón, mo[D] chroí!
