(C# Bb       A G B D Eb    C7    Ebm       Bb
(Oh, Ireland must be heaven for my mother came from there)

      Gm             D7
I've often heard my daddy
          G7                  Cm
speak of Ireland's lakes and dells,
    Gm            D7   Gm
The place must be like Heaven,
         Dm       Gm       Dm (F)
if it's half like what he tells;

         C             Bb
There's roses fair and shamrocks there,
    A             Bb
and laughing waters flow;
       Dm          A7   Dm/F      
I have never seen that Isle of Green,
             A/E       C      D   (C|G# E7)
But there's one thing sure I know.

A              A    C#+    D                A
Ireland must be Heaven, for an angel came from there,
E7 A    /C#    F#m             B7               E7
I never knew a living soul, one half as sweet or fair,
D      A                  7          F#7    B7                   E7    G#7
For her eyes are like the star light, And the white clouds match her hair, sure
A             A      D+    B7      D    E7   A
Ireland must be Heaven, For My Mother Came From There.

I've pictured in my fondest dreams
old Ireland's vales and rills,
I see a stairway to the sky,
formed by her verdant hills;

Each wave that's in the ocean blue
just loves to hug the shore,
So if Ireland isn't Heaven,
then sure, It must be right next door.



[Words and Music by Joe McCarthy, Howard Johnson & Fred Fischer. Published 1916 by Leo. Feist]

It's much easier to read songs if the lyrics are presented intact, repeating one verse and the chorus at the end with the chords posted at the end.
Here's the song in a more readable format, without all those annoying chords:

Ireland Must be Heaven, For My Mother Came From There
(Joe McCarthy, Howard Johnson & Fred Fischer)

I've often heard my daddy speak of Ireland's lakes and dells,
The place must be like Heaven, if it's half like what he tells;
There's roses fair and shamrocks there, and laughing waters flow;
I have never seen that Isle of Green, But there's one thing sure I know.

    CHORUS
    Ireland must be Heaven, for an angel came from there,
    I never knew a living soul, one half as sweet or fair,
    For her eyes are like the star light, And the white clouds match her hair,
    Sure Ireland Must be Heaven, For My Mother Came From There.


I've pictured in my fondest dreams old Ireland's vales and rills,
I see a stairway to the sky, formed by her verdant hills;
Each wave that's in the ocean blue just loves to hug the shore,
So if Ireland isn't Heaven, then sure, It must be right next door.
CHORUS
