Black is the Colour (Christy Moore)


Am F G Am            Black is the colour of my true love's hair

F C E E7                Her lips are like some roses fair

F C E E7                She had the sweetest smile and the gentlest hands

F G Am                  And I love the ground whereon she stands.


Am F G Am            I love my love and well she knows

F C E E7                I love the ground whereon she goes

F C E E7                I wish the day it soon would come

F G Am                  When she and I could be as one


Am F G Am            I go to the Clyde and I mourn and weep

F C E E7                For satisfied I ne'er can be

F C E E7                I write her a letter just a few short lines

F G Am                  And suffer death a thousand times


Am F G Am            Black is the colour of my true love's hair.

F C E E7                Her lips are like some roses fair

F C E E7                She had the sweetest smile and the gentlest hands

F G Am                  And I love the ground whereon she stands
