Song: 4/4 time  Irish Air

The harp that once thro' Tara's halls.
4    6    -6    6    5   -6 -7    7 

The soul of music shed;
-6   6   5  -4 5   4

Now hangs as mute on Tara's walls.
6    7    -7  7   -8 7 -7    -6

As tho' that soul were fled.
6  -6    6    7    5     6

So sleeps the pride of formers days.
6    7    -7    7   -8  7  -7   -6

So glory's thrill is o'ver,
6  -6  6    -5    5   -6

And hearts that once beat high for praise,
-7    7     -7   -6   6    -6  -7    7

Now feel that pulse no more.
-6   6    5    -4   5   4
