Dm 
Eileen Oge an’ that the darlin’s name is
C 
Through my barony her features were famous
Dm 
If we loved her who is there to blame us
 
For wasn’t she the  
A7 
Pride of Petra
Dm 
vore?
 
Bb 
But her beauty  
F 
made us all so shy
C7(Gm) 
Not a  
A7 
man could  
Dm 
look her in the eye
Bb 
Boys, O boys! Sure  
F 
that’s the reason  
A7 
why
 
We’re in  
Dm 
mourning for the  
A7 
Pride of Petra
Dm 
vore
 
Bb 
Eileen Oge! Me  
F 
heart is growing grey
C(Gm)7 
Ever since the  
A7 
day you  
Dm 
wandered far away
Bb 
Eileen Oge! There’s  
F 
good fish in the say
 
But there’s  
Dm 
no one like the  
A7 
Pride of Petra
Dm

Friday at the fair of Ballintubber
Eileen met McGrath the cattle Jobber
I’d like to set me mark upon the robber
For he stole away the Pride of Petravore
He never seemed to see the girl at all
Even when she ogled him underneath her shawl
Lookin’ big and masterful when she was lookin’ small
Most provoking for the Pride of Petravore

So it went as it was in the beginning
Eileen Oge was bent upon the winning
Big McGrath contentedly was winning
Being courted by the Pride of Petravore
Sez he “I know a gir lwho could knock you into fits.”
At that Eileen nearly lost her wits
The upshot of the ruction was that now the robber sits
With his arm around the Pride of Petravore

Boys, O boys! With fate ‘tis hard to grapple
Of my eye ‘tis Eileen was the apple
And now to see her walkin’ to the chapel
Wid the hardest featured man in Petravore
And now boys this is all I have to say
When you do your courtin’ make no display
If you want them to run after you just walk the other way
For they’re mostly like the Pride of Petravore
