    In An Irish Country Home

    Capo 1st fret

    [D]/// /// /// /// [G]/// [C]/// [G]/// [D]///

    In an [G] Irish country home, one evening long a-[D]-go
    Sat an old man and his little daughter [G] Nell
    Said the girl with Irish glee, as she played on Poppa's [D] knee
    You promised me a story you would [G] tell /// [C]/// [G]/// [D]///


    "Come [G] tell me of the past, of my mother dear" she [D] asked
    Come tell me how she used to look she [G] cried
    Answering Nell the old man said, as he slowly bent his [D] head
    Tears were in his eyes, he then re-[G]-plied /// [C]/// [G]/// [D]///


    She was [G] sweeter than the blossoms on the [D] clover
    She was fairer than the evening sunset [G] glow
    But I never will forget how much I [D] loved her
    When your mother took my name long long a-[G] go /// [C]/// [G]/// ///
    [D]/// /// /// /// [G]/// [C]/// [G]/// [D]///


    We were [G] married she and I, and in every way we [D] tried
    To make our house a home of happi-[G]-ness
    Till a bright Septembers morn, on the day that you were [D] born
    God took her to a brighter home a-[G]-bove /// [C]/// [G]/// [D]///


    She was [G] sweeter than the blossoms on the [D] clover
    She was fairer than the evening sunset [G] glow
    But I never will forget how much I [D] loved her
    When your mother took my name long long a-[G]-go /// [C]/// [G]/// [D]///


    In an [G] Irish country home, one evening long a-[D]-go
    Said an old man to his little daughter [G] Nell
    Though the best of friends must part
    She was dearer to my [D] heart
    For your mother was the only one I [G] loved /// [C]/// [G]/// ///

    For your [D] mother was the only one I [C] loved [G]

    Many thanks
