Instrumental Intro
[D]Fourty-Seven too long a [G]year, men [D]died in [A]chains men [D]died in [A7]fear
[D]Some were lost under Irish [G]sky and [D]some on Mexico’s [A]fields were [D]hung.
The [G]gallows [A]there four[D]teen feet high [G]two score men con[A]demned to [A7]die
[D]Hung at noon in scorching [G]heat, three [D]hours they waited bound [A]hand and [D]feet.

[D)Fourty-Seven so dark a [G]year, men [D]shook their [A]chains and [D]fell in [A7]fear
From [D]Vera Cruz a flag un[G]furled many [D]men rallied [A]round [D]it.
A [G]Mexican [A]eagle and a [D]Celtic cross [G]under the green flag [A]men were [A7]lost
[D]Shot down as soldiers, hung as [G]slaves their [D]cruel fate a [A]shallow [D]grave.

[D]Birds wouldn’t cross the Pedra[G]gal [D]through it [A]General Lee he [D]carved a [A7]path
Va[D]lencia’s army were routed [G]there Churu[D]busco’s fate was  [A]cal[D]ling.
The [G]Yankees [A]tumbled [D]through high corn at [G]Churubusco we [A]shot them [A7]down
[D]Mexican guns they soon gave [G]out with [D]bayonets we joined the [A]slaugh[D]ter.

Bridge:
D-D-A-A   D-D-A-A7   D-D-A-A   D-A7-D-D   D-A7-D-D

Three [D]times the white flag swung [G]round three [D]times O’[A]Riley [D]pulled it [A7]down
When [D]blood ran down into the [G]sand only [D]then did they sur[A]ren[D]der.
The [G]Mexican [A]eagle and a [D]Celtic cross [G]under the green flag [A]men were [A7]lost
[D]Shot down as soldiers and hung as [G]slaves their [D]cruel fate a [A]shallow [D]grave..

The [G]gallows [A]there four[D]teen feet high [G]two score men con[A]demned to [A7]die
[D]Hung at noon in scorching [G]heat, three [D]hours they waited bound [A]hand and [D]feet.
