Barbara Dickson - The Foggy Dew



[INTRO:] Am

[VERSE 1:]
                     G           
As down the glen one Easter morn
     Am   G         Am
To a city fair rode I
                      G            
As Ireland's lines of marching men 
   Am        G         Am
In squadrons passed me by
                     G      Am
No pipes did hum, no battle drum
    G                  Am
Did sound it's loud tattoo
                              G              
But the Angelus bell o'er the Liffey's swell
     Am         G     Am
Rang out in the Foggy Dew


[VERSE 2:]
                        G           
Right proudly high over Dublin Town
     Am           G       Am
They hung out the flag of war
                                  G         
For 'twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky
        Am       G      Am
Than at Suvla or Sud El Bar
                       G     Am
And from the plains of Royal Meath
                G        Am
Strong men came hurrying through
                                   G
While Britannia's sons, with their long range guns
      Am                  G     Am
Bore (Kowles) through the Foggy Dew


[VERSE 3:]
                       G             
'Twas England bade our Wild Geese go
           Am      G        Am
That small nations might be free
                               G             
But their lonely graves are by Suvla's waves
       Am            G           Am
Or the fringe of the great North Sea
                     G        Am
And had they died by Pearse's side
                   G            Am
Or fought with the noble Cathal Brugha
                                    G              
Their names we would keep where the Fenian a' sleep
           Am            G     Am
'Neath the shroud of the Foggy Dew


[VERSE 4:]
                             G           
But the bravest fell and the requiem bell
     Am      G      Am
Rang mournfully and clear
                        G          
For those who died that Eastertide
       Am         G      Am
In the springtime of the year
                              G     Am
While the world did gaze with deep amaze
                      G   Am
At those fearless men but true
                        G               
Who bore the fight that freedom's light 
      Am                G     Am
Might shine through the Foggy Dew
