THE STREETS OF GIBRALTAR LYRICS AND GUITAR CHORDS 6/8 (The Irish Brigade)
The Irish Brigade played this song in two different versions which are both  given below. The air origins from the well known Scottish song ‚The Massacre Of Glencoe’ (see Corries section) Chords by Marc.

Version 1, shorter and quicker, key of F major (use a capo on the 3rd fret)
Intro: D-D-D-D


(D)Sad are three homes in (G)Belfast (D)now
All (D)Ireland shares their (A)sorrow –A7
Braid (D)Farrell, Sean Savage, and (G)Daniel Mac(D)Cann
They (G)died on the (A)streets of Gi(D)braltar

They (D)flew out of (A)Belfast with an (D)ambitious (Bm)plan
To con(A)tinue the (A7)struggle to (D)free Ire(A7)land
Braid (D)Farrell, Sean (A7)Savage and (D)Daniel Mac(Bm)Cann
And they (G)died on the (A)streets of Gi(D)braltar -D


And (D)sad are three homes in (G)Belfast (D)now
All (D)Ireland shares their (A)sorrow –A7
As they (D)walked in the sun the (G)Brits drew their (D)guns
And (G)blood stained the (A)streets of Gi(D)braltar

The (D)SAS (A)stood there so (D)proud of their (Bm)deed
Three (A)more freedom (A7)fighters lay (D)dead in the (A7)street
They’d been (D)given no (A7)warning no (D)chance to re(Bm)treat
For (G)three had to (A)die in Gi(D)braltar -D


And (D)sad are three homes in (G)Belfast (D)now
All (D)Ireland shares their (A)sorrow –A7
As they (D)walked in the sun the (G)Brits drew their (D)guns
And (G)blood stained the (A)streets of Gi(D)braltar -D-D-D.

Version 2, longer and slower, key of G major
Intro: G-D-G-Em   C-D-G-D7
Sad are three homes in Belfast now
Old Ireland shares their sorrow
Braid Farrell, Sean Savage, and Daniel MacCann
They died on the streets of Gibraltar

They (G)flew out of (D)Belfast with an (G)ambitious (Em)plan,
To con(D)tinue the (D7)struggle, to (G)free Ire(D7)land -D
Braid (G)Farrell, Sean (D)Savage and (G)Daniel Mc(Em)Cann -Em
But they (C)died on the (D)streets of Gi(G)braltar –D7

Hidden (G)eyes had been (D)watching, they (G)followed each (Em)one
They (D)knew they weren't (D7)armed, that (G)none had a (D7)gun -D
We'll (G)give them no (D)warning and (G)no chance to (Em)run -Em
For the (C)three must (D)die on Gi(G)bralter –D7

Chorus
And (G)sad are three homes in (C)Belfast (G)now -G
All (G)Ireland shares their (D)sorrow –D7
As they (G)walked in sun the (C)Brits drew their (G)guns -G
And their (C)blood stained the (D)streets of Gi(G)braltar –D7

The (G)SAS (D)stood there, so (G)proud of their (Em)deed
Three (D)more freedom (D7)fighters lay (G)dead in the (D7)street -D
Like the (G)eight Loughall (D)martyrs, an (G)ambush did (Em)meet -Em
Our (C)three far a(D)way in Gi(G)braltar –D7

Chorus

(G)Braid while in (D)prison we (G)watched you with (Em)pride
True to (D)all you be(D7)lieved in and (G)for this you've (D7)died -D
With two (G)fine volun(D)teers Dan and (G)Sean by your (Em)side -Em
A (C)part of us (D)died in Gi(G)braltar –D7

Chorus

It (G)happens each (D)time that a (G)volunteer (Em)dies
They (D)screen out the (D7)truth with a (G)cover of (D7)lies -D
But (G)we know what (D)happened on that (G)warm peaceful (Em)night -Em
The (C)Brits planned there (D)deaths on Gi(G)braltar. –D7
Chorus
And their (C)blood stained the (D)streets of Gi(G)braltar
