The Golden Jubilee

Marie Doherty


C                                                     F
Way down in the County Kerry, in a place they call Tralee
  C                                   D               G7
A fine ould couple, they lived there, Kate and Pat Magee
         C                                          F

		Just how we looked, when we were wed, fifty years ago.
Verse 2:	Oh well do I remember how we danced on the village green
		You held me in your arms, dear Pat, and called me your cailin
		Your hair was like a raven's wing, but now it's turning grey
		Come over here, ould sweetheart dear, and hear, what I've to say:

Chorus:

Verse 3:	As well do I remember when first I was your bride
		In the little chapel on the hill, where we stood side by side
		Of good friends we have many, of troubles we've had few
		Come over here, ould sweetheart dear, and here's what you must do:

Chorus:
