Intro:  G   C   G   C   G   Em   D   G (X2)

    G        C          G      C
The minstrel boy to the war is gone,
       G        Em            D    G
In the ranks of death ye will find him;
    G        C             G      C
His father's sword he hath girded on,
        G         Em    D      G
And his wild harp slung behind him;
Em       C               D         G
"Land of song!" said the warrior bard.
      C       Em       C   D
"Tho' all the world betray thee'
    G         C          G            C
One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
    G        Em         D      G
One faithful harp shall praise thee!"

    G        C             G        C
The minstrel fell! But the foeman's chains
          G          Em           D   G
could not bring that proud soul under;
    G       C           G     C
The harp he lov'd ne'er spoke again,
       G         Em     D   G
For he tore it's chords asunder;
Em           C            D     G
And said "No chains shall sully thee,
     C       Em       C   D
Thou soul of love and bravery!
    G          C            G        C
Thy songs were made for the pure and free.
           G     Em       D   G
they shall never sound in slavery!"
