Jenny Donnelly Lyrics And Chords by stompin Tom Conners. The song is about a family from Ireland who emigrated to Canada in 1846 for a better life. This was just before The Great Hunger [1847 /'52] . 5 family members were killed in a feud in 1880. The full story is here if your intrested http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Donnellys Guitar chords by Bob Sharpe.

On a [G] bright moonlit night over [C] lucan
Strolled the [D] belle of Biddulph and her [G] beau
He would soon have to leave for St. [C] Thomas
And he [D] quietly begged her to [G] go

Come away come away Jenny Donnelly
From lucan I beg you to flee
Come away come away Jenny Donnelly
Come and live in St. Thomas with me. repeat

There’s a dark cloud of hate over lucan
And a black shadow strangles this land
So tonight let us go to your father
And there I will ask for your hand

Come away come away Jenny Donnelly
For the love in my heart you can see
Say goodbye say goodbye Jenny Donnelly
To this land with its dark destiny

They were married and lived in St Thomas Where their children did
happily grow
They were gay till the day came the message
Proclaiming its tiding of woe

As it read your family’s dead they’ve been murdered
Can you come they’ll be buried today
Deep inside Jenny cried at the funeral
Till beside her she heard someone say.
REPEAT SECOND VERSE.
