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.
