The Maid Of Ballydoo Irish Song Lyrics And Chords. 4/4 (Traditional) Recorded by The Clancy Brothers And Tommy Makem.

It was (C)on a summer's evening all in the (G)month of (C)May
Down by yon shady arbor as I (G)carelessly did stray
It was (C)there I met a charming girl most pleasant to my (F)view
And the (C)title that she (F)gave her(C)self was the Maid of (G)Bally(C)doo

I (C)boldly stepped up to her and unto (G)her did (C)say
Are you Aurora or (G)Flo the Queen of May
Or (C)is it the fair Helen that appears all in my (F)view
But the (C)title that she (F)gave her(C)self was the Maid of (G)Bally(C)doo

I (C)took her by the lilywhite hand and by the (G)waist so (C)small
I showed her my father's garden down (G)by the river Bann
Where the (C)sheep and lambs do sport and play, the trout and salmon, (F)too
And says (C)I, Sweet maid, don't (F)be a(C)fraid for to leave old (G)Bally(C)doo

Well it (C)was with great persuasion that I got her for to (G)give con(C)sent
And had in hand together it was (G)Hilltown down we went
We (C)there had liquor of the best and some of the mountain (F)dew
And she (C)soon forgot the (F)vows she (C)made when leaving (G)Bally(C)doo

It (C)was a summer's evening all in the (G)month of (C)June
As I was sitting silently, con(G)doling at my loom
My (C)scissors they cut sweetly and my shuttle nimbly (F)flew
When I (C)first composed these (F)verses (C)on the Maid of (G)Bally(C)doo
