Altan - The Wind And Rain


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
G  F C    F C   Am G Dm Em F    C  F

[Verse 1]
      G                   F      C
There were two sisters of County Clare
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
Am7                  C
One was dark and the other was fair
Dm7     C        F        G
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Verse 2]
                                  F        C
And they both had the love of the miller's son
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
    Am7                C
But he was fond of the fairer one
Dm7     C        F        G
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Verse 3]
                           F        C
So she pushed her into the river to drown
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
    Am7                C
And watched her as she floated out
Bb                        G
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Interlude]
C   G   C Dm  F


[Verse 4]
    G                            F        C
She floated 'til she came to the miller's pond
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
Am7                      C
Dead on the water like a golden swan
Dm7     C        F        G
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Verse 5]
                            F    C
And she came to rest on the riverside
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
        Am7                      C
And her bones were washed by the rolling tide
Dm7     C        F        G
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Verse 6]
                          F       C
And along the road came a fiddler fair
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
    Am7             C
And found her bones just lying there
        Bb                        G
Crying, oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Interlude]
C   G   C Dm  F


[Verse 7]
      G                        F           C
So he made a fiddle peg of her long finger bone
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
   Am7                      C
He made a fiddle peg of her long finger bone
        Dm7     C        F        G
Crying, oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Verse 8]
                                      F           C
And he strung his fiddle bow with her long yellow hair
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
    Am7                           C
He strung his fiddle bow with her long yellow hair
        Dm7     C        F        G
Crying, oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Verse 9]
                                   F             C
And he made a little fiddle of her little breast bone
Dm7              G
Oh, the wind and rain
   Am7                         C
He made a little fiddle of her little breast bone
        Dm7     C        F        G
Crying, oh, the dreadful wind and rain


[Verse 10]
                           F            C
But the only tune that the fiddle would play
     Dm7              G
Was 'Oh the Wind and Rain'
    Am7                C
The only tune that the fiddle would play
     Dm7     C        F        G
Was 'Oh, the Dreadful Wind and Rain'
