Irish Medley  Traditional

[C]There's a tear in the eye, and I'm wondering why
[G7]for it [C]never should be there at all
with such [G7]pow'r in your smile, sure a [C]stone you'd be[A7]guile
so there's [D7]never a teardrop should [G7]fall
when your [C]sweet lilting laughter's like some fairy song
[G7]and your [C]eyes twinkle [C7]bright as can [F]be
you should [D7]laugh all the while and all [G]other times [D7]smile
[D7]and now smile a smile for [G]me[G7]

when [C]Irish eyes are smiling sure it's [F]like a morn in [C]Spring
[F]in the lilt of Irish [C]laughter [A7]you can [D7]hear the angels [G7]sing
when [C]Irish hearts are happy, [C7]all the [F]world seems bright and [C]gay
[F]and when Irish [Co]eyes are [C]smiling[A7], sure they [D7]steal your[G7] heart [C]away

[C]Too-ra-[F]loo-ra-[C]loo-[C7]ral [F]Too-ra-loo-ra-lie
[C]Too-ra-[Am]loo-ra-[C]loo-ral[Am] [D]hush, now, don't you [G7]cry[G7+5]
[C]Too-ra-[F]loo-ra-[C]loo-[C7]ral [F]Too-ra-loo-ra-lie
[C]Too-ra-[Am]loo-ra-[C]loo-ral [Am]That's an [F]Irish [g7]lulla[C]by

[A]My wild [Dm6]Irish [A]rose,[A7] the [D]sweetest flow'r that [A]grows
you may [E7]search ev'ry[A]where but [E7]none can com[A]pare

My [A]wild [Dm6]Irish [A]rose,[A7] the [D]dearest flow'r that [A]grows
