[C] Asthoreen Bawn, when first we met,
I can [F] see the roses [C] yet,
And the light that lit your happy eyes of [G] blue. [G7]
I can [C] hear your sweet voice say,
Welcome [F] as the flowers in [C] May
As it did when first I [G] whispered back to [F] you. [C]
 
CHORUS
[C] Will you come with me [G] asthore,
When the [F] summer day is [C] o’er
And the [Dm] Rooks are winging[D7] homeward in the [G]sky [G7]
When the [C] mountains rise away
O’er a [F] field of gold and [C] grey,
We'll go home to Slaney [G] Valley, you and [F] I. [C]
 
VERSE
[C]Asthoreen Bawn, when you said yes,
Brimful [F]was my happi [C] ness.
Summer sped as ne'er before on flying [G]feet. [G7]
Never [C] shone the moon so bright
In a [F] starry cape of [C] night.
Never sang the thrushes [G] so divinely [F] sweet. [C]
 
CHORUS verse
[C] Asthoreen Bawn, for years you've been
In my [F] heart it's rightful [C] queen,
Ever loving, ever tender, ever [G] true.[G7]
Like the [C] sun your smile has shone,
Gladdening [F] all it glowed [C]upon,
As it did when first I [G] whispered back to [F] you. [C]

Key Of G Major.

[G] Asthoreen Bawn, when first we met,
I can [C] see the roses [G] yet,
And the light that lit your happy eyes of [D] blue. [D7]

Welcome [C] as the flowers in [G] May
As it did when first I [D] whispered back to [C] you. [G]


 

CHORUS
[G] Will you come with me [D] asthore,
When the [C] summer day is [G] o’er
And the [Am] Rooks are winging[A7] homeward in the [D]sky [D7]
When the [G] mountains rise away
O’er a [C] field of gold and [G] grey,
We'll go home to Slaney [D] Valley, you and [C] I. [G]


 

VERSE
[G]Asthoreen Bawn, when you said yes,
Brimful [C]was my happi [G] ness.
Summer sped as ne'er before on flying [D]feet. [D7]
Never [G] shone the moon so bright
In a [C] starry cape of [G] night.
Never sang the thrushes [D] so divinely [C] sweet. [G]


 

CHORUS verse
[G] Asthoreen Bawn, for years you've been
In my [C] heart it's rightful [G] queen,

Gladdening [C] all it glowed [G]upon,
As it did when first I [D] whispered back to [C] you. [G]
