4/4   |A  E| A |D   E|F#m  D| A | E | A | E |
        A       E         A               D        E        A
Now the autumn leaves are falling and the tourists have all gone
        D                  A                 E | E |
and the children they have all gone back to school
       A       E      A            D          E       A
and my life is as it was before, I work eight hours a day
        D               A              E | E |
but the company's still making all the rules
          D        E    A                  D      E        A
There's a girl in Massachusettes, south of Boston town she said
    D              A               E | E |
her lovely face is with me all the day
       A       E       A                  D     E       F#m  D|
Well I met her down in old Tralee, golden hair upon her head
  A                 E               A | E |
I won her heart but she stole mine away
       A      E      A          D       E      A
So goodbye my Boston beauty farewell my Boston Rose
     D                  A                Bm                 E
I'll wait for you, I'll think of you, no threat to you I'll pose
   A          E      A           D       E      F#m
so goodbye my Boston Beauty, farewell my Boston Rose
   D                 A                E                   A |A  E|
I wish that you were here but I know, that's the way life goes
[2nd Verse]
          A       E        A             D       E      A
There's a song we sang all summer in the bars in Dublin town
      D              A           E | E |
I can hear it on the fac'try radio
        A        E    A             D         E      A
and the feelings I remember, when I hear that simple tune
         D            A             E | E |
makes me wonder if it ever happened so
        D           E       A                D       E        A
well we laughed and loved together 'till the summer days were gone
        D           A                E | E |
and she had to fly across that ocean wide
   A          E      A            D      E    |F#m  D|
so goodbye my Boston beauty and until we meet again
     A             E              A | E |
I'll keep the fire burning deep inside        (Repeat Chorus)
[3rd Verse]
          A          E   A               D            E        A
And some nights when I'm drinkin' and my friends have gathered round
     D                A                  E | E |
well just for fun someone calls out your name
       A           E        A                D       E      A
well I smile there with the rest of them but I can't hear a sound
  D               A                 E | E |
I love you but to them it's all the same
    D           E    A                D      E     A
and nights when I'm alone my love you come into my mind
    D               A                 E | E |
and visions flash across that Emerald Isle
          A         E          A                 D          E       F#m  D|
well I'll watch the moon there up above and I'll leave this earth behind
         A              E            A | E |
and I'll call to you as I go sailing by         [Repeat Chorus]
