|G / C / |G / /
It’s been ten years and three since I first went to sea,
/ |C / A / |D / /
Since I sailed from old Ire-land and home,
/ |G / C / |G / /
But those hills lush and green were a part of my dreams,
/ |C / D / |G / / / |
When I dreamed of my Col-leen Malone.
On the day I returned to my sorrow I learned,
That the angels had called her away,
To a grave on a hill, overlooking the mill,
That’s the place where she’s sleeping today.
/ |D / / / |C / G
As the soft breezes blow through the mea-dow I go,
/ |C / G / |D / /
Past the mill with the moss covered stone,
/ |D / / / |C / G /
Up the path-way I climb through the woods and the vines,
|C / D / |G / / / |
To be with my Col-leen Malone.
She was faithful each day as I sailed far away,
There was no one but me that she loved,
I remember those eyes, soft and blue as the skies,
And her heart was as pure as a dove.
All the years of my life I will not take a wife,
I will live in this valley alone,
Planting flowers around in the soft gentle ground,
That is holding my Colleen Malone.
Up the pathway I climb through the woods and the vines,
To be with my Colleen Malone.
