The Rights Of Man Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. The Wolfe Tones. There's 2 different tunes with the name ''The Rights Of Man'' , one is just a tune with no words. This one has lyrics and It was written around 1798 by James Porter who was a dissenting clergyman from Greyabbey in Co. Down. I'm not 100% sure about the song writer but it was the best info. I could find about the song. It was recorded by The Wolfe Tones on the album The Teddy Bear's Head in 1971. The chords are a bit complicated for the novice player and were worked out by Marc.For Wolfe Tones version use a capo on the 3rd fret to change key to D#m

 


For Wolfe Tones’ version use a capo on the 3rd fret to change key to D#m
I (C)speak with (Am)gran(C)deur one (Dm)night in (F)slum(C)ber
My (Am)mind did (Em)wan(Am)der near (Dm)to Ath(F)lo(G)ne

As (Am)they a(Em)ssembled (Am)for the (F)Rights of (C)Man
 
All (C)clad in (Am)green (C)there I (Dm)thought I (F)seen(C)
A (Am)virtuous (Em)Queen (Am)who was (Dm)grave and (F)o(G)ld
Saying (C)children (Am)dear (C)now (Dm)do not (F)fe(C)ar
But (Am)come and (Em)hear (Am)what I (F)will un(C)fold -C-C
This (F)fertile country for (C)seven (Am)centu(C)ries
Since (Am)Strongbow's (Em)en(Am)try u(Dm)pon our (F)la(G)nd
Has (C)been kept (Am)un(C)der with (Dm)woes un(F)num(C)bered
And (Am)always (Em)plundered (Am)of the (F)Rights of (C)Man -C-C
 
My (C)cause you (Am)chi(C)ded you (Dm)so de(F)ri(C)ded
