Ireland Chords

Intro: A, A, A, A

(A)                      A            A      
They say Mother Earth is breathing
(A)                           A       A
With each wave that finds the shore
(A)                   A               A
Her soul rises in the evening
(A)                    A              A
For to open twilight's doors
(A)      F#m              A           A
Her eyes are the stars in heaven
(A)                      D            D
Watching o'er us all the while
(D)                    A              E
And her heart it is in Ireland
(E)                     A*
Deep within the Emerald Isle
[ Tab from: ]
Verse 2
We were forty against hundreds,
In someone else's bloody war.
We know not why we're fighting,
Or what we're dying for.
They will storm us in the morning,
As the sunlight turns the sky.
Death is waiting for it's dance now,
Fate has sentenced us to die.

F#m      D           A
Ireland, I am coming home!
      D                A      
I can see your rolling fields of green
    F#m            E 
And fences made of stone.
     F#m      A              D       A               
I am reaching out, won't you take my hand
           F#m   D E  A
I'm coming home, I-re-land!

Oh the captain he lay bleeding
And I can hear him calling me
These men are yours now for the leading
Show them to their destiny
And as I looked up all around me
I see the ragged tired and torn
I tell them to make ready
Cause we're not waiting for the morn.



Now the fog is deep and heavy
As we forge the dark and fear
We can hear their horses breathing
As in silence we draw near
And there are no words to be spoken
Just a look to say goodbye
I draw a breath and night is broken
As I scream our battle cry


(A)      F#m   D E  A           
Yes I am home, I-re-land!
