The Merry Ploughboy

	  		
verse 1: 
       C            G7                                     C 
Well I am the merry ploughboy, and I plough the fields all day. 
      G7                                            C 
Till sudden came across my mind, that I should run away 
                      G7                                C 
See I?ve always hated slavery, since the day that I was born. 
        G7                                          C 
So, Im off to join the I.R.A. and Im off tomorrow morn

C G7 So were off to Dublin in the green, in the green, C With the helmets glistening in the sun G7 Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash C To the echo of a Thompson Gun

verse 2: C G7 C I?ll leave behind my old gray coat, and I?ll leave behind my plough. G7 C And I leave behind my horse and yoke, for no more Ill need them now G7 C And I?ll take my short revolver, and my bandolier of lead G7 C And live or die, I can but try, to avenge my country?s dead

verse 3: C G7 C And I?ll leave behind my Mary, She?s the girl that I adore G7 C And I wonder what she?ll think of me, when she hears the cannons roar G7 C And when the war is over, and Ireland is free G7 C I will take her to the church to wed, and a rebel?s wife she?ll be
tabchorus
C G7 So were off to Dublin in the green, in the green, C With the helmets glistening in the sun G7 Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash C To the echo of a Thompson Gun
