The Fighting 69th Song Lyrics And Chords By The Wolfe Tones with Brian Warfield on vocals.

Intro
Em G D Em D
[Em]Come all you gallant [G]her[D]oes,
And a[Em]long with me com[D]bined
I'll [Em]sing a song,
it [G]won't take [D]long,
Of the [Em]Fighting Sixty Ninth
They're a [G]band of men brave,
[D]stout and bold,
From [Em]Ireland they [D]came
And they [Em]have a leader [G]to the [D]fold,
And Cocoran was his [Em]name

[Em]It was in the month of [G]Apr[D]il,
When the [Em]boys they sailed a[D]way
And they [Em]made a sight so [G]glor[D]ious,
As they [Em]marched al[D]ong Broad[Em]way
They [G]marched right down Broad[Em]way,
me [D]boys,
Un[Em]til they reached the [D]shore
And from [Em]there they went to [G]Washing[D]ton,
And straight unto the [Em]war

So we [G]gave them a hearty [D]cheer,
me boys,
It was [Em]greeted with a [D]smile
Singing [Em]here's to the boys who [G]feared no [D]noise,
We're the [Em]Fighting Sixty Ninth

[Em]And when the war is [G]said and [D]done,
May [Em]heaven spare our [D]lives
For its [Em]only then we [G]can re[D]turn,
To our [Em]loved ones [D]and our [Em]wives
We'll [G]take them in our [D]arms,
me boys,
For a [Em]long night and a [D]day
And we'll [Em]hope that war will [G]come no [D]more,
To [Em]sweet America

So we [G]gave them a hearty [D]cheer,
me boys,
It was [Em]greeted with a [D]smile
Singing [Em]here's to the boys who [G]feared no[D] noise,
We're the [Em]Fighting Sixty Ninth
G D Em D Em G D Em

[Em]So farewell unto you [g]dear New [d]York,
Will I [Em]]e'er see you once [D]more
For it [Em]fills my heart with [G]sorr[D]ow,
To [Em]leave your sylvan shore
But the [G]country now it is [D]calling us,
And [Em]we must hasten [D]fore
So [Em]here's to the stars and [G]stripes,
me [D]boys,
And to Ireland's lovely [Em]shore

[Em]And here's to Murphy [G]and De[D]vine,
Of [Em]honour and re[D]nown
Who [Em]did escort our [G]her[D]oes,
Un[G]to the [D]battle [Em]ground
And [G]said unto our [D]colonel,
We [Em]must fight hand to [D]hand
Un[Em]til we plant the [G]stars and [D]stripes,
Way [G]down in [D]Dixie[Em]land

So we [G]gave them a hearty [D]cheer,
me boys,
It was [Em]greeted with a [D]smile
Singing [Em]here's to the boys who [G]feared no[D] noise,
We're the [Em]Fighting Sixty Ninth.

So we [G]gave them a hearty [D]cheer,
me boys,
It was [Em]greeted with a [D]smile
Singing [Em]here's to the boys who [G]feared no[D] noise,
We're the [Em]Fighting Sixty Ninth
