LIBERTY Wolfe Tones/Jennie Sibley
Music Verdi (the Slaves Chorus from "Nabucco")
[G]Stand beside me for peace and for[D7] liberty
For[G] freedoms de[C]nied to many[D] nations.
With sad e[G]motions
,for borders that[D] run through these lands
In the[G] hope that with[C] justice and peace[D7] all will be[G] free.
[G]Free the[D] earth of weapons of[Em] war, of[A7] death and de[D]struction,
[G]Should the[C] strong deny the weak
when[A] it's justice we[C] seek for all.
With sad e[G]motion for people of[D7] these troubled lands
hope that all[C] nations at[G] war[D7] will find[G] peace
For u[D]nited we stand,
Linking our[A] hands throughout this[D] world
Making[A7] chains of love that won’t
We are[D] singing this song,
Knowing our[A] heart cannot be[D] wrong
With the[A7] love of all struggling[D]
For I[D7] hate to see children [D]crying
We must[D7] stop all their[?] sorrow and[D] dying.
Stand be[G]side me for peace and for[D7] liberty
With the hope[G] that all[C] nations at[G] war[D7] will find[G] peace
a[Em] wish[G] that our[D] lands will find[D7] justice with peace
We will[Em] sing[G] you this[C] song ,[D] just for[D7]
you liber[G]ty , liberty , liberty
