.  Am Am                G G                        
As down the glen one Easter morn
C C G G Am Am
To a city fair rode I
Am Am G G
There armed lines of marching men
C C G G Am Am
In squadrons passed me by
C C
No pipes did hum
G G Am Am Em Em Am Am
No battle drum did sound its loud tattoo
Am Am G G
But the Angelus Bells o'er the Liffey swells
C C F F Am Am
Rang out in the foggy dew


Am Am G G
Right proudly high in Dublin town
C C G G Am Am
Hung they out a flag of war
Am Am G G
'Twas better to die 'neath that Irish sky
C C G G Am Am
Than at Sulva or Sud-El-Bar
C C G G Am Am
And from the plains of Royal Meath
Em Em Am Am
Strong men came hurrying through
Am Am G G
While Brittania's Huns with their long range guns
C C F F Am Am
Sailed in through the foggy dew


Am Am G G
Their bravest fell and the requiem bell
C C G G Am Am
Rang mournfully and clear
Am Am G G
For those who died that Eastertide in the
C C G G Am Am
Springing of the year
C C G G Am Am
While the world did gaze with deep amaze
Em Em Am Am
At those fearless men but few
Am Am G G
Who bore the fight that freedom's light
C C G G Am Am
Might shine through the foggy dew


Am Am G G
And back through the glen, I rode again
C C G G Am Am
And my heart with grief was sore
Am Am G G
For I parted then with valiant men
C C G G Am Am
Whom I never shall see more
C C G G Am Am
But to and fro in my dreams I go
Em Em Am Am
And I kneel and pray for you
Am Am G G
For slavery fled, O glorious dead
C C G G Am Am
When you fell in the foggy dew
