The Boys Of The Old Brigade

	  		     G              C 
Oh, father why are you so sad 
     G                 D 
On this bright Easter morn' 
     G               C 
When Irish men are proud and glad 
        G          D        G 
Of the land that they were born? 
     D                      G 
Oh, son, I see in mem'ries few 
            C       D 
Of far off distant days 
      G            C 
When being just a lad like you 
   G         D  G 
I joined the Ira 

      D                            G 
Where are the lads that stood with me 
          C      D 
When history was made? 
                           C 
A Ghra Mo Chroi, I long to see 
    G           D      G 
The boys of the old brigade 

     G                 C 
From hills and farms a call to arms 
    G                D 
Was heard by one and all 
    G                  C 
And from the glen came brave young men 
   G      D         G 
To answer Ireland's call 
          D                   G 
'T wasn't long ago we faced a foe 
           C        D 
The old brigade and me 
    G               C 
And by my side they fought and died 
     G       D        G 
That Ireland might be free 

      D                            G 
Where are the lads that stood with me 
          C      D 
When history was made? 
                           C 
A Ghra Mo Chroi, I long to see 
    G           D      G 
The boys of the old brigade 

    G                 C 
And now, my boy, I've told you why 
   G              D 
On Easter morn' I sigh 
    G           C 
For I recall my comrades all 
    G        D         G 
And dark old days gone by 
  D                            G 
I think of men who fought in glen 
           C      D  
With rifle and grenade 
    G               C 
May heaven keep the men who sleep 
         G            D      G 
From the ranks of the old brigade 

      D                            G 
Where are the lads that stood with me 
          C      D 
When history was made? 
                           C 
A Ghra Mo Chroi, I long to see 
    G           D      G 
The boys of the old brigade
