Intro
[C] [G] [Am] [G] [C]  
VERSE 1
On the [C]quiet [G]banks of the [Am]Liffey and [G]lakes, [F]Dublin [G]wrote her [C]name.
On the [C]broad backs of [G]men, we never [Am]met with their [G]pens and their [F]stones,
they [G]did the [C]same,
In the [C]hours [G]passed in the [Am]pubs, all the [G]glasses were [F]full and they were
[G]wet to the [C]sleeve.
And the [C]eyes were so [G]clear on the [Am]girl I met [G]there,I [F]swore Id [G]never [C]leave.
CHORUS
And the [F]young men who longed for these [G]shores in a song,
All they [C]wanted [C/B]was a [Am]home,
And I [F]wanted one too with a [G]girl eyes as blue as the [C]light [C/B]of d[Am]awn,
[F]Patiently, she [G]waits there for me to come [C]home.
VERSE 2
Was a [C]bleary-eyed [G]night, [Am]drunk from the [G]lights and the [F]sounds of a [G]city
[C]awake,
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/the_airborne_toxic_event/dublin_crd.html )
And she [C]stood in the [G]crowd, her [Am]face as a [G]shroud, leaving [F]nothing for my [G]eye
to [C]take.
But a [C]warmth was so [G]clear, it [Am]betrayed her as [G]nearly she [F]glowed like those
[G]lights on the [C]bridge,
And a [C]pain in my [G]side, as I was [Am]drawn to her [G]pride like the [F]rise of the [G]wind
to the [C]ridge.
CHORUS
And the [F]young men who longed for these [G]shores in a song,
All they [C]wanted [C/B]was a [Am]home,
And I [F]wanted one too with a [G]girl eyes as blue as the [C]light [C/B]of d[Am]awn,
[F]Patiently, she [G]waits there for me to come [C]home.
INSTRUMENTAL - PLAY CHORUS CHORDS
VERSE 3 (stum full chords)
These [C]waters have run [G]red, these [Am]beaches have [G]bled from the [F]wounds at the
[G]dark heart of [C]man,
[C]Daughters grown [G]sharp, tongues like [Am]knives to the [G]heart or a [F]charm for the
[G]curse of the [C]land,
With [C]prayers in their [G]eyes, how [Am]well they've disgu[G]ised that it's [F]love
they're [G]giving [C]away.
But y[C]ou might [G]believe when your [Am]hard heart says [G]leave but [F]this one im[G]plores
you to [C]stay.
CHORUS
And the [F]young men who longed for these [G]girls with our songs,
All we [C]wanted [C/B]was a [Am]home.
[F]She wants one too with [G]someone heart as true as this [C]prison [C/B]made of [Am]stone,
[F]Patiently, she [G]waits there for me to come [C]home,
[F]Patiently, I [G]wait to be free and be [C]home.
