My Auld Killarney Hat Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Written by Leo Maguire.Sister Mary Getrude is F major with the capo on the 3rd fret.

Intro: D-A-D-D

When (D)first I left Killarney’s lakes to (G)venture o’er the (D)sea
My (Em)poor old father (Bm)shook my hand and (Em)sadly said to (A)me
"You’re are (D)leaving us tomorrow and I’m (G)going to miss you, Pat
And (D)all I got to give you is my (Em)auld Kil(A)larney (D)hat"


Chorus
Sure it's as (D)green as Killarney and as (G)deep as Galway (D)Bay.
It's as (Em)elegant and (Bm)graceful as a (Em)carpet of new-mown (A)hay.
It's been (D)kicked and hacked and walked on, but it's (G)divil the worse for that.
It's my (D)crowning touch of elegance, my (Em)auld Kil(A)larney (D)hat. -D-A-D-D


I (D)prospered in America, and (G)soon I made my (D)pile.
One (Em)day up to the (Bm)White House I (Em)wandered all in (A)style.
The (D)President said, " 'T’would make you think of (G)quitting to mend his hat.
You'll (D)always know Pat Reilley by his (Em)auld Kil(A)larney (D)hat"


Chorus

Last (D)march I led the big parade on (G)great Saint Patrick’s (D)Day
Lord (Em)save us how the (Bm)people cheered and (Em)how the bands did (A)play
But (D) the sights that took their breath away and (G)nearly knocked him flat
T’was the (D)bunch of Shamrock shining in my (Em)auld Kil(A)larney (D)hat


Chorus

And (D)now I’m going back again a(G)cross the ocean (D)wide
To (Em)see once more the (Bm)dear old place I (Em)left when but a (A)child
My (D)hair has greyed a little bit, I’ve (G)grown a trifle fat
But they’ll (D)know me when they see me by my (Em)auld Kil(A)larney (D)hat

Chorus
