Singing In Kilkenny Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords.a slow/med ballad in 4/4 time. Written by Desi Corcoran, born in Castlecomer Co Kilkenny. I wrote this for Mick, Pat, all the musicians, customers & staff at Cleeres pub Kilkenny, my favourite place in the world. 

[A7]They'll be singing in Kilkenny, when [D]my time has come to[A7] go  

                                                                                                                
Sweet songs in my memory, in [E7]tones soft and low

                                                                            
[A7]Songs of dear old Ireland, and [D]rebels so long a[A7]go

                                                                
They'll be singing in Kil[E7]kenny, when I [A7]
go


They'll be gathering at Cleeres bar, when the Sun is sinking low
The singers and the poets, all the folks I used to know
And guitars will be strummin' as the Moon is all aglow
They'll be singing in Kilkenny, when I go


They'll sing their songs of freedom, an old folk song or two
Good ole country ballads, just like I used to to
Old songs straight from the heart, the ones that you all know
They'll be singing in Kilkenny, when I go

 

Fiddles and tin whistles, strike up their Irish tunes
And the audience is buzzin', all around that old barroom
Lovers down by the River Nore, where the wild Shamrock grows
Will be singing in Kilkenny, when I go

 

Yes, they'll be singing in Kilkenny, when it's time for me to go
Sweet songs in my memory, in tones so soft and low
Songs of dear old Ireland, and rebels so long ago
To be singing in kilkenny, when I go
They'll be singing in Kilkenny, when my time , has come, to go
