The Black Watch lyrics and chords, writer unknown, recorded by Athenry and Shebeen. Guitar music - Marc Fahrbach. The video is The Irish Brigade.

 

You've (D)heard about the B-men, the (G)cruel RU(D)C

You've heard about the black'n'tans in (G)bygone histor(A)y

Well (G)there's another regiment the (D)devil calls his own

They're known as the Black Watch (A)commissioned by the (D)thrown.

 

Chorus:

(D)Strolling down the Falls road with (G)riot guns and (D)gas

Terrorizing women as they're (G)coming out of (A)mass

A (G)bunch of Scottish traitors we (D)never will forget

Thank god we know the IRA sure (A)aren’t beaten (D)yet.

 

These soldiers come from Scotland, a place we all know well

From the hardest parts of Glasgow where the `Teddy Bears' do dwell

They're given a British uniform and given a British gun

They join a British regiment just to have themselves some fun.

 

Chorus

 

When I grow up and marry, I'll have a little son

I'll tell him about the regiment and the terrible things they've done

And when he gets older, becomes a man like me

He'll become a volunteer and set old Ireland free
