The Girl I Left Behind Me

19th C. Irish folk song
Key: D
Time: 2/4

7-7 -6 6 5 4 -4 4 -3”
The hour was sad, I left the maid
-3 4 4 4 -4 5 -5 6 5
A lin-g’ring fare-well tak-ing
7-7 -6 6 5 4 -4 4 -3”
Her sighs and tears my steps de-layed
4 -3 -4 3 -3”-3 4 4
I thought her heart was break-ing
6-5 5 6 -6 -7 7 6 5
In hur-ried words her name I blessed
4 5 6 -6 -7 7 -7
I breathed the vows that bind me
7-7 -6 6 5 4 -4 4 -3”
And to my heart in an-guish pressed
4 -3 -4 3 -3”-3 4 4
The girl I left be-hind me
