Intor: D-Em-F#m-Em   D-Em-F#m-Em   D-D

(D)On a grave in (Em)Belfast -Em-A
Shone a ray of (D)gold lights
A (D)voice spoke from the (Em)deep earth -Em-A
And echoed (D)in the nights
I’m (D)far from cap(Em)tivity -Em-A
The cell which con(D)fined me
(D)Neither pain or (Em)torture -Em-A
Are the powers that con(D)signs me

Chorus
My (A)name is Bobby(D)Sands
I (A)fought and (A7)died for dear (D)land
With (A)Joe and Francis (D)at my side
My (A)comrades on (A7)hunger strike we (D)died

From (D)this dark grave now (Em)I can see -Em-A
My country yet is (D)still unfree
From (D)many years of (Em)great despair -Em-A
Many broken hearts (D)now have yearned
De(D)prived of freedom (Em)men like me -Em-A
Are in prisons with no (D)dignity

Chorus
(D)England with your (Em)wasted breath -Em-A
My land you levelled and (D)lust to death
Like the (D)rivers than flow (Em)through my land -Em-A
The blood runs red u(D)pon your hands
And re(D)flected in the (Em)cloudless sky -Em-A
Will be the freedom’s light for (D)those who died

Chorus
The (D)light it shines u(Em)pon our deaths -Em-A
For Ireland your (D)blood is shed
(D)Flowers wither u(Em)pon my grave -Em-A
Through the years I’ll (D)know the ???
We’re a (D)land, a nation (Em)proud and free -Em-A
Those flowers will bloom (D)free one year
Chorus twice
Repeat Intro
