-To Youth(My Sweet Roisin Dubh)

Verse 1:
        C                    G
Tell me why must a man be of service
       C                       G
To his lord and the god seldom high
         C                            G
From the grave spring the name of our fathers
               C          Am         D
But there's no glint in a dead man's eye
        C                              G
Tell me why are our fields filled with hunger
     C                        G
And fruitless the crop bitter soil
     C                    G
So I say my farewell to a nation
       C          Am              D
As the leaf waves goodbye to it's son

Chorus
           C                     G
So it's to youth I sing you this story
            C               G
And it's of youth I sing it now
         C                          G
Like the train that derails without warning
       Am                      D
I must leave what I left far behind
       C               D
So goodbye, sweet Roisin Dubh
      G  C  G  C  G  C  G
I say goodbye

Verse 2:
        C                          G
Tell me why must our peace be this puzzle
     C                             G
That fractures the land, splinters war
         C                           G
The last nails cite the shame in our coffin
           C           Am      D
But in the end we must all die alone

Chorus
           C                     G
So it's to youth I sing you this story
            C               G
And it's of youth I sing it now
         C                          G
Like the train that derails without warning
       Am                      D
I must leave what I left far behind
       C               D
So goodbye, sweet Roisin Dubh
      G  C  G  C  G  C  G
I say goodbye

Bridge:
        D
And the bark fell from tree
       C                   G
To the ground that they'll bleed
       D                             G
On the anguish that never learned to shout
         D
With the clash of the drum
      C             G
We'll surrender the gun
            D                          G
and on this sadness we shall no longer speak
      C                     G
Until time can live on our all forgotten songs
            C                   D
That's when I and we will sing again
      G          C        D            G
So goodbye to my love, my sweet Roisin Dubh
   G          C            G  C  D  G G  C  G
Goodbye now until we meet again

        C                           G
Tell me why must our grief still be greiving
      C                              G
For a language that never spoke it's loss
         C                                G
But this tongue speak with fire will tear down the barb wire
    N.C.
And Rip the belly from the waxy ghost

Chorus
           C                     G
So it's to youth I sing you this story
            C               G
And it's of youth I sing it now
         C                          G
Like the train that derails without warning
       Am                      D
I must leave what I left far behind
           C                     G
So it's to youth I sing you this story
            C               G
And it's of youth I sing it now
         C                          G
Like the train that derails without warning
       Am                      D
I must leave what I left far behind
       C               D
So goodbye, sweet Roisin Dubh
      G  C  G  C
I say goodbye
      C                D
So goodbye, sweet Roisin Dubh
      G  C  G  C
I say goodbye
               G  C  G  C
Until we meet again
               G  C  G  C
Until we meet again

Until we meet...

Outro:
G
Then she arrives to beautify
                     D
But slumber now must rest
      G
Oh my Roisin Dubh
      C
I'll forever love
    G         D      G
The youth you once possessed


That's it!!! Most of this song is mandolin driven. But sounds just fine on guitar as 
Hope you enjoy it! Comments would be very appreciated:)))

nice. I don't know if you've noticed or not, but flogging molly likes to use the mandolin. try The Son Never Shines on Closed Doors. The whole thing is done on Mandolin and still sounds awesome on guitar or banjo.
