Loughgall Ambush song lyrics and chords. Recorded by Spirit Of Freedom and it's their version that these chords fit. Also recorded by Charlie And The Bhoys, Eire Og, Padraig Mor. Written by Gerry O'Glacain from The Irish Brigade.

[D]We've sung so many [A]songs of fallen [D]heroes
I [G]really thought that [A]I had said it [D]all
But if a [G]song can fill our [A]hearts and raise our [D]spirits,[Bm]
Then I'll [G]sing about our [A]martyrs at [D]Loughgall,
the [D]Irish nation[A] bowed its head in [D]sorrow
Such [G]sadness as this [A]country's seldom [D]known
For[G] Monaghan has [A]lost a gallant [D]soldier
With [G]seven Volun[A]teers from green [D]Tyrone

Oh [G]England do you [A]really think its [D]over
If you [G]do you're going to [A]have to kill us [D]all
For un[G]til you take your [A]murderers out of [D]Ireland,[Bm]
Then we will[G] make them rue the [A]blood spill at Lough[D]gall,[A]

It was [D]on a warm and [A]misty Friday [D]evening
The [G]scent of apple [A]blossom filled the [D]air
That [G]village street seemed [A]quiet and de[D]serted,[Bm]
But [G]hidden eyes were [A]watching every[D]where,[A]
The [D]digger bomb had [A]only reached its [D]target
The [G]trap was sprung and [A]gunfire filled the [D]air
The [G]SAS did [A]not want any [D]prisoners,[Bm]
"[G]Shoot to kill!" their [A]orders were quite [D]clear

They [D]butchered eight brave [A]volunteers that [D]evening
They were [G]kicked and punched in [A]case they were not [D]dead
They [G]dragged them  up and [A]down that Armagh [D]village,[Bm]
And [G]filled their bodies [A]full of British [D]lead,[A]
Did you [D]think that it would [A]teach us all a [D]lesson
As such [G]savagery the [A]whole world was ap[D]palled
Don't you [G]know that there's[A] twenty more men [D]waiting,[Bm]
For [G]everyone you [A]butchered at Lough[D]gall

Fare[D]well Paddy [A]Kelly and Jim [D]Lynagh
No [G]more you'll lead your [A]fighting unit [D]forth
Side by [G]side with Pádraig Mc[A]Kearney and Tony [D]Gormaley[Bm]
You [G]died to drive the [A]British from the [D]north[A]
Declan [D]Arthurs and the [A]youthful Seamus [D]Donnelly
On that [G]night you were the[A] youngest of them [D]all
With Gerry O'[G]Callaghan and the [A]gallant Eugene [D]Kelly[Bm]
Oh your [G]blood still stains the [A]pavements at Lough[D]gall
