When The Fields Are White With Daisies Guitar Chords And Lyrics. Recorded in Ireland by Sean Dunphy. Written in 1907 by C. M. Denison. with Music by W. A. Pratt.

Intro E, C# F#   B E
I[E] once stood [C#]in a[F# harbour, as a [B]ship was going [E]out,
On a voyage un[G#m]to a [F#port be[A]yond the [E]sea.
I watched the [C#]blue-clad [F#]sailor, as he [B]bade his last fare[E]well
To the lassie [G#m]who he [F#]loved most [B]tender[E]ly.
I heard the [C#]sailor [F#]promise to the [B]lassie now in [E]tears,
"When the fields are [G#m]white with [F#]daisies [B]I'll re[E]turn,

[E]"When the fields are white with [F#]daisies, and the [B]roses bloom a[E]gain,
Let the love light [G#m]in your [F#]heart most [E]brightly burn,
For I love you, [C#]sweetheart, [F#]only, and re[B]member when you're [E]lonely,
When the fields are [G#m]white with [F#]daisies [B]I'll re[E]turn."

For the [F]news she [Gm]heard that morning, that the [C]ship had sailed a[F]way,
And would anchor at the [Gm]harbour [C]ne'er a[F]gain,
Alone she [Gm]stood there weeping, for the [C]one she mourned as[F] dead,
When a voice be[A]side her [Gm]whispered, [C]"Mol[F]ly dear,
God has spared me for your keeping, and the promise once I made,
When the fields are white with daisies I'll return,

[Gm]God has spared me for your keeping,[C] and the promise [F]once I made
[A]When the fields are[Gm] white with [C]dasies [F]I'll return

[C#]"When the [F#]fields are [B]white with [G#m]daisies and the [C#]roses bloom a[F#]gain,
Let the love light in your [G#m]heart most [C#]brightly[F#] burn,
For I love you, [B]sweetheart, [G#m]only, and re[C#]member when you're [F#]lonely,
When the fields are [B]white with [G#m]daisies[C#]I'll re[F#]turn."
(I'll return)

Sean Dunphy does a key change in this song. If the chords don't suit your own voice then here are the chords without the key change in G Major.

I[G] once stood [E]in a [A] harbour, as a [D]ship was going [G]out,
On a voyage un[Bm]to a [A]port be[C]yond the [G]sea.
I watched the [E]blue-clad [A]sailor, as he [D] bade his last fare[G]well
To the lassie [Bm]who he [A]loved most [D]tender[G]ly.
I heard the [E]sailor [A]promise to the [D]lassie now in [G]tears,
"When the fields are [Bm]white with [A]daisies [D]I'll re[G]turn,


[G]"When the fields are white with [A]daisies, and the [D]roses bloom a[G]gain,
Let the love light [Bm]in your [A]heart most [G]brightly burn,
For I love you, [E]sweetheart, [A]only, and re[D]member when you're [G]lonely,
When the fields are [Bm]white with [A]daisies [D]I'll re[G]turn."
