The Ballad Of Pearse Jordan Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Written and recorded by The Irish Brigade. Also recorded Eire Og. / Gary Og. Chords by Marc.

A (D)young man, was shot on the Falls Road to(A)day
The bulletins came through to (A7)hide the truth a(D)way
With (D)different stories to cover the (G)lies(Em)
'twas (G)cold blooded (D)murder,(A) caused Pearce (A7)Jordan to (D)die

As you (D)travelled the Falls Road early that (A)night
The police, they were watching, they (A7)kept you in (D)sight
They (D)rammed your car from every (G)side(Em)
As you (G)staggered a(D)way,(A) you were shot, (A7)and you (D)died

Chorus
Slán go (D)fóill mo chara, just for a (A)while
We'll not, have your craíc, your (A7)jokes, or your (D)smiles
But (D)in years to come, your memory's still (G)true(Em)
A (G)brave son of (D)Ireland,(A) we will (A7)not forget (D)you

Your (D)killer that night, you did not even (A)see
Shot in the back, (A7)by the RU(D)C
Now (D)they won’t be punished, though justice they'll (G)meet(Em)
For (G)shootin' Pearse (D)Jordan,(A) un(A7)armed in the (D)street
Chorus
The (D)grief that is felt by, his family is (A)sore
To know that they'll never, see (A7)Pearse any (D)more
No (D)chance to hold him, or tell him good(G)bye(Em)
But they're (G)proud of their (D)son,(A) and the (A7)cause that he held (D)high

Chorus
Final Chorus with different 4th line:
Good(G)bye my dear (D)friend,(A) we will (A7)not forget (D)you
