Song lyrics and guitar chords

Pat Mc Guigan
Pat has written many classic Irish songs,
Including The Boys Of The Old Brigade,
The Men Behind The Wire.
Pat used to play with Barleycorn,
I'd say the photo was taken at The Embankment in
Tallagh back in the 70's [Am I right ?] anyway the video is of Danny Doyle who gigs in America now and has made a life for himself there. A brilliant balladeer.

T'was[C] one morning in July,I was[F] walking through Tippe[C]rary,
When I heard the battle cry from the[D] mountains over[G]head,
As I[C] looked up to the sky,saw an[F] Irish[C] soldier laddie,
Who looked at me quiet[G] fearlessly and[C] said,
[Chorus]
Will you[G] stand in the band like a[C] true Irish man,
And go to fight the forces of the[G] crown,
Will you[C] march with O'Neill to an[F] Irish battle field,
For[C] tonight we're going to[G] free old Wexford[C] town,
[2]
Said I to that soldier lad will you take me to your captain,
It will be my pride and joy to march with you this day,
My young brother fell at Cork and my son in Enniscorthy,
And to this noble captain I will say,
[3]
[This verse is song slow]
As we marched back again in the shadow of the evening,
With our banners flying low to the memory of our dead,
We returned to our homes,but without our soldier laddie,
But I never will forget thoes words he said
[Chorus after each verse]
