Ringsend Rose song lyrics and guitar chords
Written by Pete St. John. An Irish love song. The Sheet music in the key of D is included plus the tin whistle notes. Here's another classic from Pete. This song was recorded by Brendan Grace and Patsy Watchorn with The Dublin City Ramblers and later with The Dubliners. It was also recorded by Tara Folk, The Emigrants and by North Sea Gas. Ringsend is a working class area about a mile from the city center with Irishtown beside it. The list of songs that Pete St. John has written is endless, but the one that has been recorded most of all around the world is The Fields Of Athenry Song about a little town in the west of Ireland.
In[D] Irishtown there live's a[G] girl
Fairer[D] than the flower I'm[A] wearing
Rose[D] Donohue all fresh and[G] new
And I[D] love her[A7] past all[D] caring
And there she goes my Ringsend Rose
In God's garden there's none rarer
And there she goes My Ringsend Rose
Dublin Town has seen none Fairer
Sweet seventeen my seamstrees queen
She's no bigger than a thimble
Soft satin skin streets out look's grin
Sure she makes the world look simple
Three yards of lace to walk with grace
And a golden ring she's asking
They say man's slow ah but still I know
That our love is everlasting
