Eileen
Recorded by Slim Whitman
Written by Sylvia Fine and Max Liebman

G C
In a town on the sea by the Castle Doonee
D7 G
The fairest of them all was the maiden Eileen
C
The bloom on her cheek was as fresh as the dew
D7 G
And her heart to a young fisher laddie was true

C G
At morn he would sail with the sun and the tide
E7 A7 D7
That he would return to his promised young bride
G C
And there on the shore she could hear it so plain
D7 G
His voice in the wind singing soft this refrain

C G Am D7 G
Eileen my Eileen oh wait for me wait Eileen

C
They were to be wed on a Sunday in May
D7 G
And fate was a joy to see Eileen so gay
C
The morning before he set sail with the tide
D7 G
But he never returned to his promised young bride

C G
Oh no never more was her heart light and warm
E7 A7 D7
Her lover he died yes he died in a storm
G C
But down by the shore she could still hear so plain
D7 G
His voice in the wind singing soft this refrain

C G Am D7 G
Eileen my Eileen oh wait for me wait Eileen

C
They say that her heart it was broken in two
D7 G
The lovely Eileen ah so young and so true
C
And down by the shore they who loved her the best
D7 G
By the rock where she waited they laid her to rest

C G
Oh many the years that have past since that day
E7 A7 D7
But maidens who wait for their lovers they say
G C
But still on the shore they can hear it so plain
D7 G
His ghost in the wind singing soft this refrain

C G Am D7 G
Eileen my Eileen oh wait for me wait Eileen
