Eyes of Ireland  Camel


Andy Latimer/Susan Hoover, from Camel's _Harbour of Tears_ 1996
Intro riff: (repeate 4 times)
[Dm] [C] [Am] [Dm]  

[Dm]Listen now boys, my [Bb]grandmother [F]said -
I'll [Gm]tell you a s[Dm]tory and [C]then off to [Dm]bed.
There [Dm]once was a time, we [Bb]lived of the [F]land,
[Gm]Harvest would [Dm]come, and we [C]all lent a [Dm]hand. [C](ri[Am]ff r[Dm]epea[Dm]ted [C]twi[Am]ce)[Dm]
But [Dm]winds blew our lives, and [Bb]scattered our [F]seeds.
[Gm]Changing the [Dm]landscape, from [C]flowers to [Dm]weeds.
[Dm]See in the graveyard the [Bb]families [F]gone.
The [Gm]grandest of [Dm]tombstones [C]carry them [Dm]on...
When you [Bb]sail [F]from the [Am7]Harbour,
It's your [Bb]last [F]eyes of [Dm]Ireland. [C](ri[Am]ff r[Dm]epea[Dm]ted [C]twi[Am]ce)[Dm]
We tended the fire, and faeries appeased
the flames never died until we had to leave.
And when we were gone, the house tumbled down
and covered our footprints, we'd left on the ground.
When you sail from the Harbour,
It's your last eyes of Ireland.
(short guitar solo in the following chord sequence:
[C]an[Dm]d t[Bb]hen[C] b[Dm]ack[Bb] to[Am] intro riff)
My eyes are now tired and no longer see.
But visions of Ireland linger in me.
So carry your past in the rooms of your heart
and you'll never be empty of love when you part...
When you sail from the Harbour,
It's your last eyes of Ireland.
(riff repeated 4 times)
