The Broad Black Brimmer Chords

(Noel Nagle)
There´s an [G] uniform that´s hanging in what´s [C] known as father´s [G] room
An uniform so simple in his [D] style
It [G] has no braid of gold or silk no [C] hat with feathered [G] plume
Yet the mother has [C] preserved it [D] all the [G] while
One [C] day she made me try it on, a [G] wish of mine for years
"In memory of your father, son" she [Em] said
And [G] when I put the Sam Browne on she was [C] smiling with the [G] tears
As she placed the broad black [C] brimmer [D] on my [G] head
It´s [D] just a [G] broad black brimmer with [C] ribbons frayed and [G] torn
By the careless whisk of many a mountain [Em] breeze
An [G] old [C] trench [G] coat that´s [C] battle stained and [G] worn
And breeches almost [C] threadbare [D] at the [G] knees
A [C] Sam Brown belt with [G] buckle big and strong
A holster that´s been empty many´s a [Em] day
When [G] men claim Ireland´s freedom the [C] one who'll choose to [G] lead them
Will wear the broad black brimmer of the [D7]IR[G]A
It was the uniform been worn by me father long ago
When he reached me mothers homestead on the run
It was the uniform me father wore in that little church below
When oul Father Mac he blessed the pair as one
And after truce and treaty and the parting of the ways
He wore it when he marched out with the rest
And when they bore his body down that rugged heather braes
They placed the broad black brimmer on his breast

hope you like it.
