My (G)heart tonight is (Em)far away a(C)cross the rolling (D)sea
In the (C)sweet Miltown (G)Malbay, it's
(Em)there I'd (D)love to (C)be-C
So (G)long ago and (Am)far away but (G)nothing (Em)can com(D)pare
My (C)heart's tonight
in (G)Ireland (Em)in the (G)sweet (D)County (G)Clare.
(G)In the town of (Em)Scariff the sun was (C)shining (D)in
When (C)Willie Clancy (G)played his pipes and the tears welled (Em)in my (D)eyes.
Many (G)years have passed
and (Em)gone since the (C)times we had (G)there
But my (C)heart's tonight in (G)Ireland (Em)in the (G)sweet (D)County (G)Clare.
(G)August in Kil(Em)rush when the (C)rain was (D)lashing (G)down
And (C)our hotel was (G)that hay barn on the (Em)outskirts
We (G)were all sick and (Em)feverish and (C)Dolan had the (G)flu
But (C)Johnny produced some (G)whiskey
(Em)and the (G)sun came (D)smiling (G)through.
Those (G)nights in Sixmile(Em)bridge when the
(C)songs and (D)music (G)flowed
And (C)when it came to (G)closing time sure the lights were (Em)turned down (D)low
the (G)sergeant from Kil(Em)kishen he would (C)buy us all one (G)more
And we (C)never left that (G)pub be(Em)fore the (G)clock
was (D)striking (G)four.
La(G)hinch and Ennis(Em)timon, Lis(C)cannor (D)and Kil(G)kee
(C)best of all was (G)Miltown when the music (Em)flowed so (D)free
Willie (G)Clancy and the (Em)County Clare I'm (C)ever
in your (G)debt
For the (C)sights and sounds of (G)yester(Em)day are (G)shining (D)memories (G)yet.
