And (F)wonder where the (C)heather

You'll (F)find that people (C)there will
(Am)share the (Dm)last bite in their (G)mouths.
For to (C)them you are no (Am)stranger just a (F)friend they haven’t
And (F)when they take you (C)by the hand they (Am)never (G)will for(C)get.
Now the (C)Ulster man will (Am)take your hand and (F)make you welcome (C)there,
The (F)western folk are (C)decent
(Am)folk and (Dm)kindness will not (G)spare.
In (C)Leinster you'll be (Am)treated to the (F)best of every (G)thing.

No (C)matter where you (Am)wonder be it (F)North South East or (C)West.
They'll (F)offer you a (C)friendly (Am)glass
and (Dm)treat you to the (G)best.
So (C)put a spurt in(Am)to your step the (F)welcome mat is (G)down,

warm and (C)nights are short and (Am)summer's (G)comming (C)'round.
