The county Down lyrics and chords by Tommy Sands
Lyrics and chords fit Tommy Sands version from his album ‘Beyond The Shadows’ . Many other songs have being written about the Co. Down and I suppose The Star Of The Co. Down Song remains the one that's most known around the world.
When (D7)you're out (C)wal(G)king, and there's (D7)no one near (G)you
But a voice keeps (C)cal(G)ling and you hear your (D)name
It's not the (D7)lea(Em)ves or the (D7)whispering bree(G)zes
It's me that's (C)calling you (G)back a(Am)gain
Oh (D7)can you (D)hear (Em)me? Oh can you (C)hear (G)me
As you roam through (D7)lone(Em)ly (C)London (D)town?
When (D7)evening's (C)fal(G)ling you'll (D7)hear me (Em)calling
(G)"Come on (C)ho-(G)ome to (the) (D7)County (G)Down"
Do (D7)you re(C)mem(G)ber the (D7)fiddlers play(G)ing
The songs and (C)sto(G)ries the whole night (D)long?
It’s little (D7)then (Em)that you (D7)thought of lea(G)ving
It seems so (C)strange now that (G)you are (Am)gone
The (D7)fish are (C)dan(G)cing on (D7)Clanrye Ri(G)ver
The teams are (C)spor(G)ting in old Glen(D)vale
My heart no (D7)lon(Em)ger can (D7)lead the chee(G)ring
When you're not (C)playing, it's a (G)different (Am)game
I'm (D7)always (C)drea(G)ming that (D7)things are chang(G)ing
And that they're (C)buil(G)ding a factory (D)tall
And young ones (D7)nee(Em)ded a(D7)gain in New(G)ry
But I still (C)need you the (G)most of (Am)all
(G)"Come on (C)ho-(G)ome to the (D7)County (G)Down"
Lyrics Without The Chords
When you're out walking, and there's no one near you
But a voice keeps calling and you hear your name
It's not the leaves or the whispering breezes
It's me that's calling you back again
Oh can you hear me? Oh can you hear me
As you roam through lonely London town?
When evening's falling you'll hear me calling
"Come on ho-ome to County Down"
Do you remember the fiddlers playing
The songs and stories the whole night long?
It’s little then that you thought of leaving
It seems so strange now that you are gone
The fish are dancing on Clanrye River
The teams are sporting in old Glenvale
My heart no longer can lead the cheering
When you're not playing, it's a different game
I'm always dreaming that things are changing
And that they're building a factory tall
And young ones needed again in Newry
But I still need you the most of all
"Come on ho-ome to the County Down"
