Foggy Dew The Dubliners
Beautiful tune sung by Luke and played by Ronnie, I'm assuming. The other tabs
involved a complex Cmaj9 chord when, to my ear it sounds like a simple G. Maybe to
get that warmer sound that Ronnie gets using the classical guitar, exclude playing
thehigh e string. Enjoy.
Intro: C G C
[C]When I was a[G] bachelor, a[F]iry and you[C]ng, I[C] followed th[G]e roving tra[C]de,
[C]And the only harm that[G] ever I do[Am]ne, w[F]as courting a[F] servant mai[C]d.
[C]I courted her all summ[G]er lo[Am]ng, [F]and part of the wint[F]er, to[C]o
[C]And many's the time I r[G]olled my lo[Am]ve
[F]all over the foggy d[C]ew [G]dew d[Am]ew.
[F]all over the foggy d[C]ew
One night as I lay in my bed, taking my pleasent sleep.
This pretty young maid she came to me, and bitterly she did weap.
She tore her hair,and she wrung her hands.Saying, oh what shall I do.
For tonight I resolve to sleep with you,
For fear of the foggy dew, dew, dew.
For fear of the foggy dew.
All in the first part of that night we rolled and sport and play.
All in the latter part of that night she in my arms did lay
And when the daylight did appear She cried, I am undone
Aw hold your tongue you silly young girl
For the foggy dew is gone, gone, gone
For the foggy dew is gone
Supposing you should have a child It would make you laugh and smile
And suppose you have another one It would make you think a while
And suppose you have another one, And another one or two
It would make you leave off them foolish young tricks,
and think on the foggy dew, dew, dew
and think on the foggy dew
I love that girl with all my heart she's as dear as my lovely life
But in the latter part of that year She became another mans wife
But, i'd never told him of her faults and I'm damned if e'er I'll do
And many is the time she winks and smiles
I think on the foggy dew, dew, dew
I think on the foggy dew
