Flight Of The Earls
(Wolfe Tones)
         G              D        G                     D       G
Verse 1: I can hear the bells of Dublin in this lonely waiting room
                 C              G              D
         And the Paper-boys are singing in the rain
                 G       D        G                          D   G
         Not too long before they take us to the Airport and the noise
            C             G        D     G
         To get onboard a Trans-Atlantic plane
                   D                                 C               G
         We've got nothing left to stay for, we have no more left to say
                   C         G              D
         And there isn't any work for us to do
                G        D        G                    D         G
         So farewell you boys and girls another bloody flight of Earls
                  C        G        D      G
         Our best asset is our best export too
Verse 2: It's not murder, fear or famine that makes us leave this time
         We're not going to join McAlpines fusiliers
         We've got brains and we've got vision, we've got education too
         But we just can't throw away these precious years
         So we walk the streets of London and the streets of Baltimore
         And we meet at night in several Boston bars
         We're the leaders of the future but we're far away from home
         And we dream of you beneath the Irish stars
Verse 3: As we look on Ellis Island and the lady in the bay
         And Manhattan turns to face another Sunday
         We just wonder what you're doing to bring us all back home
         As we look forward to another Monday
         Because it's not the work that scares us, we don't mind an honest job
         And we know things will get better once again
         So a thousand times adieu, we've got Bono and U2
         All we're missing is the Guiness and the rain
Verse 4: So switch off your new Computers ‘cos the writing's on the wall
         We're leaving as our fathers did before
         Take a look at Dublin Airport or the boat that leaves North Wall
         There'll be no Youth unemployment anymore
         Because we're over here in Queensland and in parts of New South Wales
         We're on the seas and airways and the trains

hope you like it.
