Anyone help out with lyrics and chords for this Furey's song? Can't find any mention of it googling.

Yes I've seen that and I have an album with it, but there are no lyrics there?

I think I've worked out most of it and just need half a line (not sure of the chords though - I'm a beginner)

I'll be there Fureys and Dave Arthur
Instr Bm G Em A Bm   G D G Bm
Bm                                  G   Em
I walk in silence by her tiny feet
             A                                          Bm
To pick primroses where my father sleeps
Bm                                  G             Em
And I think of her while I stand and weep
   A                                                      Bm
A young heart that ..................so deep

Ch
          G                     D                      G                         Bm
And in winter I'll be there, where the fields are cold and bare
               C                        G                      D
And I'll stand there and share my life with you
       G                     D                      G                         Bm
And I'll take away the snow, so young spring flowers can grow
               C                        G                      D
In summer sun and rain. I'm there with you

I'll leave you now but I'll return
To this peaceful plae where no hurt can burn
And when Autumn leaves they fall all around
I'll return once again

Ch

Last 2 lines of ch

No sound on this machine. I'll try tomorrow from a different one.

I can't help with the chords, but I think your missing line is:
"A young heart buried there so deep"

And I think line 2 is:
"To take primroses where my father sleeps"

I was just looking up to see if there were chords for "I'll be there" by The Fureys. However, it seems they sang two songs by the same name, on vastly different themes. Have never heard of the one linked to above!

This is the one I have off the 1997 album "Through The Eyes Of An Irishman" (which was the name of the Australian album. It was released the previous year elsewhere as "May We All Some Day Meet Again").

I'll Be There

When they sent the invitations, won't you tell me Paddy boy
When they sent the invitations were you there?
When your country called on you, did you rush to join the queue?
I was there, I was there, I was there.
I was there, I was there, I was there.

And when they got their marching orders, won't you tell me Paddy boy
When they got their marching orders were you there?
Yes, I gave up felling trees for a free trip overseas
I was there, I was there, I was there.
I was there, I was there, I was there.

And when the lads marched into battle, won't you tell me Paddy boy
When the lads marched into battle were you there?
When the cannon fired loud, did you do your country proud?
I was there, I was there, I was there.
I was there, I was there, I was there.

And in the terror of the trenches, won't you tell me Paddy boy
In the terror of the trenches were you there?
Yes, I wallowed in the mud, and I swallowed tears and blood
I was there, I was there, I was there.
I was there, I was there, I was there.

And when the lads came home as heroes, won't you tell me Paddy boy
When the lads came home as heroes were you there?
Yes, I came back lame and blind, and left half the lads behind
I was there, I was there, I was there.
I was there, I was there, I was there.

And if you had you had your time all over, won't you tell me Paddy boy
If you had your time again would you be there?
If I had my time again yes I'd do the bloody same
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there

If I had my time again yes I'd do the bloody same
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there

Oops disregard the chords after the wording "last three lines": it should read:

Am G Am G Fmaj
