Black Is The Colour Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

                    F       G                           Am
Black is the colour, of my true love's hair,
                     F  G                  E7
Her lips are like, some roses fair,
                                   F  G                            E7
She's the sweetest smile, and the gentlest hands,
                     F    G                         Am
I love the ground, where on she stands.

Black Is The Colour Chords/Lyrics/Verse

                  F  G                       Am
I love my love, and well she knows,
                     F       G                     E7
I love the ground, whereon she goes,
                   F   G                      E7
I wish the day, it soon would come,
             F     G                    Am
When she & I could be as one.

Black Is The Colour Chords/Lyrics/Verse 2

                     F   G                            Am
I go to the Clyde and I mourn and weep,
              F   G                   E7
For satisfied, I ne'er can be,
                      F    G                          E7
I write her a letter, just a few short lines,
                      F   G                   Am
And suffer death, a thousand times.

Black Is The Colour Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

                    F       G                           Am
Black is the colour, of my true love's hair,
                     F  G                  E7
Her lips are like, some roses fair,
                                   F  G                            E7
She's the sweetest smile, and the gentlest hands,
                     F    G                         Am
I love the ground, where on she stands.

    Hello Dave! That’s absolutely fabulous news you can play ride on. For Black is The Colour Christy Moore plays it different nearly every time. It really is more about the timing which is the most important aspect of the song.

    The finger Pattern I use as is follows:

    It starts off with the chord A minor (Before Lyrics start, remember capo 1)

    Pattern : (A string )Thumb (G string ) 2nd finger (D string ) 1st Finger.
    (A string ) thumb ( B string ) 2nd finger, ( G string ) 2nd Finger
    ( D string ) 1st Finger (A string ) Thumb.

    The finger pattern for the rest of the chords are a similar variation if not the same. Remember don’t worry about accuracy focus on clean chords and timing.

    Hope this helps.
