Where My Eileen Is Waiting For Me lyrics and chords, A traditional song made famous by Johnny Mc Evoy. The youtube video will show you how to play the song on guitar. It's in the key of A Major using capo on the 2nd fret. 

[A]I am always light[D]hearted and easy[A]not a care in the [D]ld have[E]I
For I[A]know I am[D]loved by a col[A]een,that I could'ntfo[E]rget if I tried
She[D]lives far away or the mount[A]ain re the little birds sing on the trees[E]
In a [A]tage all covered in ivy,my eileen is waiting for me,
[Chorus]
It's[D] over it's over the moun[A]tain,where the little birds sing on the[E] trees,
In a[A] cottage all[D] covered in[A] ivy,
My eileen is[E] waiting for[A] me.
[2]
The time I bid good-bye to eileen,is a time I will never forget,
For the tears bubbled up from their slumber,I fancy I see them yet,
They look like the pearls in the ocean,as she wept her tale of joy,
And she said dear boy dont forgen me,till we meet here again or above.
[Chorus]

This song was written by William Scanlon who was Irish but lived in America. It was first called ''Over The Mountain'' and recorded in America first by Uncle Dave in 1929.  The words Eileen and Coleen were not in the original version but were added later when it reached Ireland.
