C chordC Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
Well how do you do young Willie McBride
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
Do you mind if I sit here down by your graveside
Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
And rest for a while in the warm summer sun
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
I've been walking all day and I'm nearly done
C chordC Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
I see by your gravestone you were only 19
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC G chordG
When you joined the great fallen in 191
C chordC Am chordAm D7 chordD7
Well I hope you died quick and I hope you died clean
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
Or Willie McBride was it slow and obscene


Chorus:

C chordC G chordG
Did they beat the drum slowly
Fm chordFm C chordC
Did they play the fife lowly
G chordG Fm chordFm G chordG
Did they sound the dead march as they lowered you down
Fm chordFm C chordC Am chordAm
Did the band play the last post and chorus
C chordC Fm chordFm G chordG C chordC
Did the pipes play the Flowers of the Forest


C chordC Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
And did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
In some loyal heart is your memory enshrined
Am chordAm Fm chordFm D chordD
And though you died back in 191
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
To that loyal heart you're forever 19
C chordC Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
Or are you a stranger without even a name
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC G chordG
Forever enshrined behind some old glass pane
C chordC Am chordAm D7 chordD7
In an old photograph all torn tattered and stained
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
And faded to yellow in a brown leather frame


Chorus

C chordC Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
The sun's shining down on these green fields of France
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
The warm wind blows gently and the red poppies dance
Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
The trenches have vanished long under the plow
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
No gas no barbed wire no guns firing now
C chordC Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
But here in this graveyard it's still No Man's Land
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC G chordG
The countless white crosses in mute witness stand
C chordC Am chordAm D7 chordD7
To man's blind indifference to his fellow man
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
And a whole generation that were butchered and damned


Chorus

C chordC Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
And I can't help but wonder oh Willie McBride
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
Do all those who lie here know why they die
Am chordAm Fm chordFm C chordC
Did you really believe them when they told you the cause
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
Did they really believe that this war would end wars
C chordC Am chordAm Fm chordFm D7 chordD7
Well the suffering the sorrow the glory the shame
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC G chordG
The killing and dying it was all done in vain
C chordC Am chordAm D7 chordD7
Oh Willie McBride it all happened again
G chordG Fm chordFm C chordC
And again and again and again and again
