 G                           C
Kids wear white garters and smell like their mothers
       F                     C
Whose husbands and fathers alike
              G                      F
Drink black beer in the same public houses
 F            G               C
Smelling of smoke and strong whiskey

F C

  G                       C
Mammies and daddies and skipping ropes
    F                  C
Lectures from priests, living in hope
 G                         F
They've not mistaken the brand of their coats
  F                 G        C
Paid for by their spiritual teachings

F C

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

F C

C        F       G
Oh          the holy ground
  F                                                       G               
Ceud mile failte, there's saints and there's scholars to see
C        F       G
Oh          the holy ground
    F                                                   G
The far away hills ain't as green as they once used to be

Dm      Dm      Dm      Dm

      G                   C
It's Easter again and we cannot forget
 F                        C
Brothers and sisters and all that was said
     G                          F
So practice your pipes, stand proud in the wet
         F           G          C
But the eyes of the world are upon you

F C

 G                    C
God in his mercy has given us men
    F                         C
To lead us to peace but they can't bring an end
        G                         F
To the profits that pay off the lease on the land
     F             G         C
We still send them over the water

F C

 G                    C
Seventeen years and Kelly's a man
     F                           C
Who stands on the street with a gun in his hand
         G                       F
He's Protecting the pipers that play in the band
           F      G            C
While the enemy waits with an army

C        F         G
Oh            the holy ground
F                                                         G
Ceud mile failte, there's saints and there's scholars to see
C        F         G
Oh            the holy ground
     F                                                 G
The far away hills ain't as green as they once used to be

Dm      Dm      Dm      Dm

G                 C
Dia le hEireann, suckle the empire
F                 C
Dia le hEireann, suffer the loss
         G                         F
Of the green to the blue while the media feeds
         F             G           C
On the blood and the pain and the hatred

F C

G                         C
Father walks home on the colourless night
         F                C
And the organisation has blinded his sight
     G                     C
His wife and his kids are sleeping tonight
        F                       G
In the arms of sweet Jesus and Mary

C         F        G
Oh            the holy ground
F                                                         G
Ceud mile failte, there's saints and there's scholars to see
C         F         G
Oh             the holy ground
     F                                                 G
The far away hills ain't as green as they once used to be
