[Intro]
 G Gsus4     G Gsus4      G 


[Verse]
 D                             G
Kids wear white garters and smell like their mothers
  C                            G
Who'se husbands and fathers alike
      D                           C
Drink black beer in the same public houses
 C               D               G    Gsus4  G
Smelling of smoke and strong whiskey


[Verse]
  D                       G
Mammies and daddies and skipping ropes
    C                   G
Lectures from horny man, living in hope
 D                          C
They've not mistaken the brand of their coats
  C                D        G         Gsus4  G
Paid for by their spiritual teachings


[Verse]
   D                   G
A busy year this,  streets running red
 C                    G
How many sent to the nuptial bed
D                            C
And how many sent home to a winter of graves
 C                 D           G      Gsus4 G
And how many wait in for the slaughter


[Chorus]
G         D          Dsus4
Oh oh the holy ground
  C                         Am                            D Dsus4
Ceud mile failte, there's saints and there's scholars to see
G         D          Dsus4
Oh oh the holy ground
    C                        Am                        D Dsus4
The far away hills ain't as green as they once used to be


[Verse]
      D                    G
It's Easter again and we can't forget
 C                              G
Our brothers and sisters and what was said
        D                          C
So you practice your pipes, stand proud in the wet
 C                  D              G    Gsus4 G
But the eyes of the world are upon you


[Verse]
D                            G
Kelly is seventeen, and he thinks he's a man
     C                           G
He's out on the street with a gun in his hand
 D                               C
He's protecting the pipers who play in the band
 C              D              G   Gsus4 G
While the enemy waits with an army


[Verse]
D                   G
Dia le hEireann, an'suckle the empire
C                    G
Dia le hEireann, an'suffer the loss
  D                                C
Of the green and the red and the orange white'n blue 
 C                D                 G    Gsus4 G
On the blood and the pain and the hatred


[Chorus]
G         D          Dsus4
Oh oh the holy ground
C                           Am                            D Dsus4
Ceud mile failte, there's saints and there's scholars to see
G         D          Dsus4
Oh oh the holy ground
     C                        Am                        D Dsus4
The far away hills ain't as green as they once used to be


[Verse]
 D                      G
God in his mercy has given us men
    C                           G
To lead us to peace but they can't put an end
  D                                  C
To all those young woman, who are leaving the land
C                   D         G   Gsus4 G
flying frightened over the water


[Verse]
D                           G           
Father walks home on a colourless night
 C                        G
 the organisation has blinded his sight
 D                         G
His wife and his kids are sleeping tonight
 C                          D    Dsus4
In the arms of Jesus and Mary


[Chorus]
G         D          Dsus4
Oh oh the holy ground
C                           Am                             D  Dsus4
Ceud mile failte, there's saints and there's scholars to see
G         D          Dsus4
Oh oh the holy ground
     C                        Am                        D Dsus4
The far away hills ain't as green as they once used to be


[Verse]
 D                           G
Kids wear white garters and smell like their mothers
 C                          G
Who'se husbands and fathers alike
 D                              C
Drink black beer in the same public houses
 C              D                 G  Gsus4 G
Smelling of smoke and strong whiskey
C              D                  G  Gsus4  G
Smelling of smoke and strong whiskey
