D G D G D G D G D G 

     D                             Em            G 
On a warm summer late morning in a field outside Glenarm, 
          D                                   G 
There was two young fellas resting; they had toiled their father's farm, 
       D                     G 
When a tall gentleman rider approached them with a smile, 
                            (Bm)           G 
saying "brothers, would yis listen for a while?" 


         D                                      G 
He said "our country's called Ireland, it's the garden of the earth, 
    D                 (Dm)               A                 G 
And I've dreamed of a future where our people know their worth, 
           D                               Em                  G 
Where the laws are written by reason, not landlords, kings, or priests 

Yis can have this boys, if you would walk with me." 

D G 

         D                           Em            G 
"Ah well all people want freedom, so came the two replies, 
       D                             G      
Oh but more people fear treason, the redcoats and their spies" 
        D                                  Em            G 
But the tall rider embraced them, "I have true men in Belfast, 
                                    
I am Henry, I'll be faithful to the last." 

         D                            G 
"And the proud armies of Ulster boast twenty thousand men, 
          D                            Em                G 
From the dark allies of Belfast, North Down and Antrim's glens, 
         D                          Em                 G 
Sure, we rose yesterday morning and threw the gauntlet down,  

And tomorrow boys we enter Antrim town." 



         D                                      G 
Singing "our country's called Ireland, it's the garden of the earth, 
    D                 (Dm)               A                 G 
And I've dreamed of a future where our people know their worth, 
           D                               Em                  G 
Where the laws are written by reason, not landlords, kings, or priests 

You can have this boys, if you would walk with me." 

DGDD 
           D                                 Em                    G 
With their pikes trembling before them, they stormed the barracks' gate, 
        D                              G 
Let our proud nation adore them, every man there knew his fate, 
         D                      Em             G 
They had no rifle or cannon, or wages from the crown, 
                          D    G 
But the redcoats stood in line and shot them down. 

D G D G 

       D                               G 
To the dark, cold Belfast mountain the rebels they laid low, 
     D                           G 
To a dark wattled cottage, young Henry he did go, 
           D               (Dm)           G     
There were no French boats approaching, or allies from the south, 

But not a word of doubt came out from Henry's mouth. 

                 D             G 
Cold, tired, and hungry, young Henry made his vow, 
           D                                Em               G 
"From your proud mothers I stole you, and I won't desert you now, 
       D                     G 
We are sons of the republic, not panthers but free men, 

And it's never going to be the same again." 


  D                                      G 
"Our country's called Ireland, it's the garden of the earth, 
    D                 (Dm)               A                 G 
And I've dreamed of a future where our people know their worth, 
           D                               Em                  G 
Where the laws are written by reason, not landlords, kings, or priests 

Yis can have this boys, if you would walk with me." 

D G D G 

              D                        Em                   G 
Through those dark Belfast alleys they dragged young Henry Joy, 
        D                                  Em             G 
And the same Orangemen cursed him, who had loved him as a boy, 
        D                        Em                     G 
In the true faith of Jehovah, he feared no death-drum's role, 

"May God and the Republic take my sole." 


  D                                      G 
"Our country's called Ireland, it's the garden of the earth, 
    D                 (Dm)               A                 G 
And I've dreamed of a future where our people know their worth, 
           D                               Em                  G 
Where the laws are written by reason, not landlords, kings, or priests 

Yis can have this boys, if you would walk with me." 


"Ye can have this boys, if you would walk with me."
