Colleen Malone: Larry Sparks Album: Special Delivery
Capo 3rd Fret
Please Note: The intro follows the pattern of the first two lines, except the last two chords are reversed in the second line. I have put in how it would be with words. If you have the recording you will hear it. This is a great bluegrass song where Larry Sparks flat-picks the first two lines of the instrumental. He has a unique style that really makes the acoustic guitar sound as it should, without fancy electronic adjustments.
If you can't find this recording, contact me at Gmwns@aol.com and I'll be glad to send you the MP3.
Intro: (Keep in mind the words are just to set the pattern. On the recording, instruments are playing) (A) It's been ten years and (D) three since I (A) first went to sea And I (D) sailed from old (E) Ireland and (A) home
(A) It's been ten years and (D) three since I (A) first went to sea And I (D) sailed from old (A) Ireland and (E) home And those (A) hills lush and (D) green were a (A) part of my dreams When I (D) dreamed of my (E) Colleen Ma-(A)-lone

On the day I re-(D)-turned to my (A) sorrow I learned That the (D) angels had (A) called her a-(E)-way To a (A) grave on a (D) hill over-(A)-looking the mill There's the (D) place where she's (E) sleeping to-(A)-day
Chorus As the (E) soft breezes blow through the (D) meadow I (A) go Past the (D) mill with the (A) moss covered (E) stone Up the pathway I climb through the (D) woods and the (A) vines *To (D) be with my (E) Colleen Ma-(A)-lone
Instrumental Follow pattern of first verse
(A) She was faithful each (D) day while I (A) sailed far away There was (D) no one but (A) me that she (E) loved I re-(A)-member those (D) eyes soft and (A) blue as the skies And her (D) heart was as (E) pure as a (A) dove
For the rest of my (D) life I will (A) not take a wife I will (D) live in this (A) valley a-(E)-lone Planting (A) flowers a-(D)-round in the (A) soft gentle ground That's (D) holding my (E) Colleen Ma-(A)-lone
Repeat Chorus
