|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.
