Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Sligo Fair  Jonathan Kelly

[Am]                                    [Fmaj7] 
She goes down to meet her Mam(?), returning from the fields.

[Am]                                    [Fmaj7] 
A wicker basket on her arm and a spaniel at her heels.

   [Bb]                 [Am]       [Em]          
And as she picks wild flowers she wonders should she go or stay.

                         [Am]      [Em]     [Am] [Em] [Am] 
Now that Sligo Fair is just a week away.


Am7, Em7, Am7, Em7

[Am]                                    [Fmaj7] 
Her mind is on the back seat of the traveller’s caravan

[Am]                                    [F] [maj7] 
Headed for the city and to a new life she could plan.

      [Am]                    [Em]           
With no more days of waiting for her man to name the day.

                         [Am]      [Em]     [Am] [Em] [Am] 
Now that Sligo Fair is just a week away.


(bridge)

[E]                                    [Emaj7] [A] [E] 
Hard to be a woman in the country life.

                          [E]           
She don’t wanna be a milkmaid, she don’t wanna be a milkmaid.


         [Bbmaj7]       [Am7]      [D]               
She wants to be a wife...


Em7...


[Am]                                    [Fmaj7] 
Way above the Northern coast, the seagulls circle high.

      [Am]                              [Fmaj7] 
As to the West the sinking sun spills gold across the sky.

       [Bb]         [Am]          [Em]           
And homeward wends the Friesian herd to the ending of their day.

        [Am]              [Em]        [Am]      [Em] [Am] 
And Sligo Fair is just a week away.

(bridge)


[E]                                    [Emaj7] [A] [E] 
Hard to be a woman in the country life.

                          [E]           
She don’t wanna be a milkmaid, she don’t wanna be a milkmaid.

         [Bbmaj7]       [Am7]      [D]               
She wants to be a wife...

Em7...

[Am]                                    [Fmaj7] 
She goes down to meet her Mam, returning from the fields.

      [Am]                              [Fmaj7] 
A wicker basket on her arm and a spaniel at her heels.

    [Bb]              [Am]       [Em]            
And as she picks wild flowers she wonders should she go or stay.

              [Am]                 [Em]     [Am] 
Now that Sligo Fair is just

[Am]      [Em]        [Am]                      
Sligo Fair is just

[Am]       [Em]        [Am]                     [Fmaj7] 
Sligo Fair is just a week away.
