G                            C           G
His eyes they closed and his last breath spoke
G                     Em
He had seen all to be seen
  G                      C     G
A life once full, now an empty vase
         G               D     G
With the blossoms on his early grave
      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em                D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
          G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                 G           D        G
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.

                                 X    X    X
Then the rosary beads count them one, two, three
                           Em
Fell apart as they hit the floor.
       G                     C      G
In our garb of black we must pay respect
       G           D       G
To the color we\'re born to mourn.
      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
      Em                D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
         G                     C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                 G           D        G
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.


Violin riff part 1
(see bottom of page)

       G                         C        G
In his place there grew an angry festered wound
             G           Em
Filled with hatred and remorse
          G                         C        G
Where I\'d pick and scratch till the blood it matched
           G             D        G
The silent rage now that fills my lungs
              G                   C        G
For there are many ways to kill a man they say
     G                  Em
With bayonette, axe, or sword
          G                   C         G
But son a bullet fired from a shapeless guise
               G          D        G
Leaves but the shell of a Thompson gun.

      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em               D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
         G                     C       G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                 G           D        G
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.


Violin riff part 1
(see bottom of page)


Em               Em             D
From the Eastern to the Western shore
      Em           Em             D
Where many men and many more will fall.
       C                G
But no angel flies with me tonight
     Em                D
Till freedom reigns on all
              G                 C          G
And curse the name for which we slaved our days
           G             D       G
Till every man shall his kingdom come


Violin riff part 3
(see bottom of page)


            G                        C       G
But sure as night turns day ends the passion play
      G                  Em
Oh my god what have they done
     G                       C       G
With madman\'s rage well they dug our graves
        G           D       G
But the dead rise again you fools

      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em               D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
         G                     C       G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                  G          D        G
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.
      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em               D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
         G                     C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
[N.C]
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.

Really good tab! Well done! Just wondering, on the album it sounded like another note got played on "tear" of "Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear". I thought maybe there should be a D there, with a G D C G pattern over that whole line?
