Over in Killarney,Many year ago,Me mither sang a song to meIn tones therefore sweet and low.Just a straightforward little ditty,In her an excellent ould irish way,And I"d offer the civilization if she can singThat tune to me this day.Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,Too-ra-loo-ra-li,Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,Hush, currently don"t friend cry!Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,Too-ra-loo-ra-li,Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,That"s an ireland lullaby.Oft, in desires I wanderTo that cot again,I feeling her eight a huggin" meAs as soon as she organized me then.And ns hear her voice a humin"To me as in days or yore,When she used to absent me fast asleepOutside the cabin door.Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,Too-ra-loo-ra-li,Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,Hush, now don"t girlfriend cry!Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,Too-ra-loo-ra-li,Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,That"s an irish lullaby.
A few weird chords here. Ns don"t understand what the first chord is so I referred to as it Bsus2addb6.Cause basically that"s what that is and it"s played low to high:Bsus2addb6-(x24223).The other weird chord is perhaps a Gdim7 but who really cares anyways.There"s a couple of ways come play it:Gdim7-(xx2323),Gdim7-(x12323),Gdim7-(678686).The very first is clearly the easiest but sounds empty, ns think the second sound the best.The chords in base are single bass note to lead up.Play the exact same chord progression through van Morrison"s component as the first.Then repeat Richard Manuel"s part at the finish when they"re both singing.And lastly run right right into the C#7 because that the ending.--Neil FitzpatrickBsus2addb6 (B-C#-D#)E A E (E-F#-G#)Tura Lura LuralA Gdim7Tura Lura LieE A E C#7Tura Lura LuralF#7 B7 (B-C#-D#)Hush now Don"t friend cryE A E (E-F#-G#)Tura lura luralA Gdim7Tura lura lieE A E C#7Tura lura lura F#7 B7 EThat"s an ireland LullabyWell it"s oftenSomething in dreams I"ve wonderedRight back, earlier to that cott againAnd ns feel and also I feel her arms a huggin meJust prefer she did like she did way back thenAnd ns hear her voice a humminJust like means back in job of yuleWhen she provided to absent me she provided to rock meOutside, exterior the kitchen doorThat"s why I"m to sing tonightEnding:C#7 F#7 B7 A E five yes, It"s just an irish Lullaby Webmaster
