D 
I have sought to discover a  
G 
haven of  
D 
rest
 
Where the sun sinks by  
A 
night in the  
A7 
land of the  
D 
West
 
I have dwelt with the red man in the  
G 
green forest bow’
D 
rs
 
Or the  
A 
wild rolling prairie be  
A7 
spangled with flow
D 
ers
 
I have hied to the north where the  
G 
hardy pine  
D 
grows
 
‘Mid the wolf and the  
A 
bear and the bleak winter  
D 
snows
 
I have roamed through all climates but  
G 
none I could  
D 
see
 
Like the  
A 
green hills of  
A7 
Cork and my home by the  
D 
Lee
 
Beautiful city, charming and  
A 
pretty
 
Beautiful  
A7 
city, my home by the  
D 
Lee

I have slumber’d in palm-groves by clear running streams
And the wild groves of Blarney come haunting my dreams
I have listened to bells on the soft summer wind
But the sweet bells of Shandon were dear to my mind
I have mixed in gay dances my sorrow to hide
But there’s none like the maiden that’s now by my side
There is nought in the land of the slave or the fee
Like the green hills of Cork and my home by the Lee
Beautiful city, Beautiful city
Beautiful city, the pride of the Lee

The bold feudal castle looks down on the Rhine
That flows through the land of the olive and vine
There’s freedom and health in the fresh mountain breeze
That careers round the home of the brave Tyrolese
There is beauty and love in all spots of the earth
To the heart that can call it the land of its birth
But of all the fair countries, the dearest to me
Are the green hills of Cork and my home by the Lee
Beautiful city, Beautiful city
Beautiful city, the pride of the Lee
