I'll Tell My Ma (Girl from Belfast City)
I'll tell me ma when I go home Chord Sequence; DGAD, DGAD, DGDA, DGAD
The boys won't leave the girls alone or GCDG, GCDG, GCGD, GCDG
They pulled me hair and they stole my comb
But that's alright 'til I go home.
She is handsome she is pretty
She is the girl from Belfast City
She is courting 1, 2, 3,
Please won't you tell me who is She?
Albert Mooney says he loves her
And all the boys are fighting for her
They knock at her door and ring at her bell
Saying “O me true love are you well ?”
Out she comes as white as snow
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
Oul Johnny Murray he says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye
Let the wind and rain and the hail blow high
Let the snow come tumbling from the sky
She's as nice as apple pie
She'll get her own lad by and by
When she gets a lad of her own
She won't tell her ma when she comes home
Let them all come as they will
For it's Albert Mooney she loves still.
