My Heart It Belongs To She
My Heart, It Belongs To She - Andrew (Andy M.) Stewart intro - Em Bm x2 Em Bm Em Bm Late in the evening when the gloamin' comes down Em Bm C It's deep in the country I'll be Em Bm Em Bm When all the wild creatures and all sensible men Em Bm C Are seekin' their beds I'll roam free. G D Em Bm Where the wild salmon spring through a peat water ring Em C D Bm And the blackbird and the thrush ring a jig from each tree Am G Em Bm Some contentment I'll find with the town far behind Em Bm C For my heart, it belongs to she. Em Bm Em Bm And who could have blamed her, she married so young Em Bm C And what of this world did she see? Em Bm Em Bm Naught but pots and of pans and a hard drinking man Em Bm C Being a wife and a mother of three. G D Em Bm And who could have blamed her when passion's wild flame Em C D Bm And the young man with money one day replaced me? Am G Em Bm Being a fool from the start, now I've paid with my heart Em Bm C For my heart, it belongs to she. Em Bm Em Bm If I pass a cottage and a family within Em Bm C Its light and its warmth leave me cold. Em Bm Em Bm And if I pass a young girl who catches my eye Em Bm C Her youth and her hope leave me old. G D Em Bm And who could have blamed her when all else had failed Em C D Bm Whose hopes and whose dreams were no interest to me? Am G Em Bm Being a fool from the start, now I've paid with my heart Em Bm C For my heart, it belongs to she.
