IN THE CITY OF CHICAGO CHRISTY MOORE Guitar Chords    

IN THE CITY OF CHICAGO         CHRISTY MOORE

G D Em ( x 2 )

(Chorus)
G      D       Em
In the city of Chicago
G      D               Bm
As the evening shadows fall
C         D          Em
There are people dreaming
C       D           Am
Of the hills of Donegal
Am               C
Eighteen forty seven
D           Em
was the year it all began
Am              C
Deadly pains of hunger
D                Em
Drove a million from the land
Am                  Em
They journeyed not for glory
Am            Em
Their motive wasn't greed
Am             C
A voyage of survival
D                 Em
Across the stormy sea

CHORUS

Some of them knew fortune
Some of them knew fame
More of them knew hardship
Died upon the plain
They spread throughout the nation
They rode the railroad cars
Brought their songs and music
To ease their lonely hearts

CHORUS
