In Belfast lyrics and chords -The Wolfe Tones-Written By Brian Warfield-Guitar Chords Marc Fahrbach.

IN BELFAST 4/4 (Wolfe Tones)

  

(C)Cast your eyes on a (F)spot, dear Lord, it’s a (C)spot that’s close to (G)hell,

It’s a (C)burning, boiling (F)cauldron, where (C)people, they must (G)dwell.

The (C)sun won’t shine in (F)my backyard, it’s (C)hidden by the (G)wall

The (C)moon and stars just (F)light the night for the (C)cat that claims the (G)wall.

 

In Bel(C)fast, there are (F)fears of your (C)neighbours and (F)strangers

In Bel(C)fast, there are songs to be (G)sung

In Bel(F)fast, there are fears of (C)war and of (Am)peace

Tell me (Bb)why, tell me what can be (G)done?

 

The (F)burning church, the (C)burnt out bars,

The (Bb)crying child, the (F)mother’s sigh

The (Bb)butchered fathers, the (F)murdered sons,

The (Bb)burnt out homes, those (Am)shameful (C)laws.

 

T’was the (G)policies of the government of (F)England over (C)centuries

To keep (F)Ireland divided by (G)religions of God

For if (F)ever the Catholics and (C)Protestants un(Am)ited

They’d (Bb)surely loose Ireland, the (G)jewel in the crown.

 

The (C)streets are dark and (F)empty, no (C)friendly face (G)abounds

The (C)soldiers with their (F)blackened face go (C)prowling through the (G)grounds.

The (C)spiral reaches (F)breaking point, the (C)bard has played his (G)tune

The (C)night owl hides its (F)eary face with the (C)fading of the (G)noon.

 

In Bel(C)fast, there are (F)fears of your (C)neighbours and (F)strangers

In Bel(C)fast, there are songs to be (G)sung

In Bel(F)fast, there are fears of (C)war and of (Am)peace

Tell me (Bb)why, tell me what can be (G)done?

 

The (F)burning church, the (C)burnt out bars,

The (Bb)crying child, on her (F)way to school

The (Bb)butchered fathers, the (F)murdered sons,

The (Bb)burnt out homes, those (Am)shameful (C)laws.

 

T’was the (G)policies of the government of (F)England over (C)centuries

To keep (F)Ireland divided by (G)religions of God

For if (F)ever the Catholics and (C)Protestants un(Am)ited

They’d (Bb)surely loose Ireland, the (G)jewel in the crown.

In Belfast Wolfe Tones. Written By Brian Warfield
Sectarian violence has no place in a civilised society
but it is a cancer that has plagued Ireland and the
Irish people for centuries. Many people across the
world often wonder why two Christian people are so
hurtful to each other. We are often asked for reasons
and explanations. There are no simple answers but
across the centuries there was a deliberate policy
perused by successive English Governments to keep the
Irish divided by religions of God. Many of us officials
in correspondence to their authorities, remarked that
if ever the Protestants and Catholics unite they would
lose Ireland. They kept the Irish people from positions
of power we imposed penal laws against the Catholic and
Presbyterian for centures and made them pay tithes to
the established protestant church. The Irish people were
never bigoted or sectarian most of the loaders and
reptcsentatives of the people were Protestant.
