First: First Tab + I play the ukulele so I'm not 100% positive but it should sound 
something like this:

Chords Used: Dm Am Em C D F A

[slow part]
    Dm
Oh! Oliver Boy what did you do?
    Am
But crush the hand you never shook
     Em                             Dm
Then rob the rights of people to be free
    Dm
Oh! Oliver Boy it's a terrible state
    Am
You left behind a worse off race
      Em                                 Dm
Where dignity and pride fought for their place
    C              Dm
Oh! Oliver Boy now you are gone
    Am                     Dm
And we're still here where we belong
Am                                          Dm
Forgiveness being our strength you'll never see

[slow part over]

Dm
Now the sun shines on this page I write
            Am
Though it's raining hard in Palestine
   Em
No lands are promised lands
             Dm
When will we see?
[Dm]
So don't tell me that your God's my God
        Am
I don't think they even care at all
       Em                                 Dm
Just a pantomime behind a curtain lies de-ceit

   C            Dm
Oh listen to me bark out loud
     Am              Dm
With-out a voice and little growl
C               Dm
Snapping at the heels I wait
Am
For something more to change
                       Dm [fades directly into Chorus]
The more they stay the same

[Chorus 1]
Dm
Oliver Boy! It's the same militia
D
Oliver Boy! Just the clothes are different
F
Oliver Boy! It's the same old story
A                                     Dm
Where there's blood there's death not glory

Dm
Look into these empty eyes
Am
Fed upon by parasites
Em                                Dm
As beauty's ugly head devours its plight
[Dm]
While the borders of our hate create
Am
Nothing more than each our fate
Em                                  Dm
Trapped between our comfort and our crime
   C               Dm
So stand along the graveyard wall
    Am                  Dm
And watch the souls per-form their song
C              Dm
Sing to us the dead above
       Am
As the mourners come to pray
                Dm
The living stay away

[Chorus 2]
Dm
Oliver Boy! It's the same militia
D
Oliver Boy! Just the clothes are different
F
Oliver Boy! It's the same old story
A
Where there's blood there's death not glory
Dm
Oliver Boy! We're all someone's sons
D
All of our Boys! Just put down the guns
F
Oliver Boy! You're dead but listen
A                                 Dm
You were wrong but we're no diffe-rent

[Solo - not figured out]

Dm                      D
   Marching to the left,  everyone in step
Dm F                         A
     Don't ask the question, why we're here with no direction
Dm                       D 
   Marching to the right,  this is not our fight
Dm F                        A
     The curse of friction, born of man and contradiction

[Chorus 2]

Dm
All of our Boys!

[slow part]

Dm
Now the sun shines on this page I write
            Am              A     Dm
Though it's raining hard in Pales-tine


Enjoy!

I'm not entirely sure that D chord is right...sounds good though!
