Donal Og
C G am F
I. It was late last night and the dog spoke of you
C am G
The snipe spoke of you from her deep marsh
Am F C G
You’re a lonely bird in the wood
C G am
And you will be alone till you find me

2. You promised me, and you said a lie to me
that you would meet me where the sheep were flocked
I stood and called thru the night
No one was there but bleating lambs

Em G Am Em
You took the East and the West from me, darling
G Am Em
what is before and behind
G Am Em Bm
You took the moon and the sun from me darling
Em bm am Em
I fear you took my very soul My very soul

3. My mother bade me not speak to you
Today or tomorrow or Sunday
Too late and I beyond belief
Too late to lock the door from the thief FFDD FFDD FFCC GG FFFF C

4. now my heart’s black as the blackness of the sloe,
blacker than the coal on the smith's forge;
black as footprints left in stark white halls
it was you that put that darkness in my life.

Em G Am Em
You took the East and the West from me, darling
G Am Em
what is before and behind
G Am Em Bm
You took the moon and the sun from me darling
Em bm am Em bm am em em
I fear you took my very soul My own poor soul (My poor soul)
