Dublin Saunter (Dublin can be heaven)
 Leo Maguire (1903-1985)(e *) = play A- and D-string, not E
 

(G) I've been North and (e) I've been South
(G)  I've been East and (e) West
 I've (G) been  just a (e *) rolling (D) stone (D7)
 (G)  Yet there's one place (e) on this earth
 I've (G) always liked the (e)best
(G)  Just a little (e *)town I call my (D) own (D7)

For (G) Dublin can be (e) heaven
 With (G) coffee at e-(e)-leven
 And a (a) stroll in Stephen's (D) Green (D7)
 (G)  There's no need to (e) hurry
(G)  There's no need to (e) worry
 You're a (a) king and the lady's a (D) queen (D7)
(G)  Grafton Street's a (e) wonderland
 There's (G) magic in the (e) air
 There's (a) diamonds in the lady's eyes
  And (D) gold-dust in her (D7) hair
 And (G) if you don't be-(e)-lieve me
(C)  Come and meet me (a) there
 In (D) Dublin on a (D7) sunny Summer (C) mor-(G)-ning

I've been here and I've been there
 I've sought the rainbow's end
  But no crock of gold I've found
 Now I know that come what will
 Whatever fate may send
 Here my roots are deep in friendly ground

For Dublin can be heaven
 With coffee at eleven
 And a stroll in Stephen's green
  There's no need to hurry
 There's no need to worry
 You're the king and the lady's a queen
 Grafton Street's a wonderland
 There's magic in the air
 There's diamonds in the lady's eyes
  And gold-dust in her hair
 And if you don't believe me
 Come and meet me there
 In Dublin on a sunny Summer morning

 And if you don't believe me
 Come and meet me there
 In Dublin on a sunny Summer morning

I've been North and  I've been South
  I've been East and  West
 I've  been  just a rolling  stone 
   Yet there's one place  on this earth
 I've always liked the best
  Just a little town I call my  own

For  Dublin can be  heaven
 With  coffee at e-leven
 And a stroll in Stephen's  Green 
   There's no need to hurry
  There's no need to  worry
 You're a  king and the lady's a  queen 
  Grafton Street's a  wonderland
 There's magic in the air
 There's  diamonds in the lady's eyes
  And gold-dust in her  hair
 And if you don't be--lieve me
 Come and meet me there
 In  Dublin on a  sunny Summer  morning

I've been here and I've been there
 I've sought the rainbow's end
  But no crock of gold I've found
 Now I know that come what will
 Whatever fate may send
 Here my roots are deep in friendly ground

For Dublin can be heaven
 With coffee at eleven
 And a stroll in Stephen's green
  There's no need to hurry
 There's no need to worry
 You're the king and the lady's a queen

 There's magic in the air
 There's diamonds in the lady's eyes
  And gold-dust in her hair
 And if you don't believe me
 Come and meet me there
 In Dublin on a sunny Summer morning

 And if you don't believe me
 Come and meet me there
 In Dublin on a sunny Summer morning
