Liam Clancy - The Foggy Dew

CAPO: 2nd Fret

[INTRO:] Am    C  G  C  Am

[VERSE 1:]
   F                 G                C    Am
As down the glen one Easter morn to a city fair rode I
     F                  G               C         Am
When Ireland's lines of marching men in squadrons passed me by
   C         Em         G      C        Am                  F
No pipes did hum and no battle drum did sound it's dread tattoo
        Am      F             G                   C          Am
But the Angelus bell o'er the Liffey's swell rang out in the Foggy Dew

[Verse 2:]
      F                 G                 C            Am
Right proudly high over Dublin Town, they hung out the flag of war
          F                       G                 C        Am
For 'twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud El Bar
    C        Em        G     C            Am                F
And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through
         Am       F                G                       C           Am
While Britannia's sons, with their long range guns, sailed in from the Foggy Dew

[Verse 3:]
      F                G                         C       Am
'Twas England bade our Wild Geese go, that small nations might be free
          F                    G                    C             Am
But their lonely graves are by Suvla's waves or the fringe of the grey North Sea
    C        Em      G        C       Am                 F
But had they died by Pearse's side or fought with Valera true
      Am          F              G                         C            Am
Their graves we'd keep where our Fenians sleep, 'neath the hills of the Foggy Dew

[Verse 4:]
         F                    G                C       Am
Now, the bravest fell and the sullen bell rang mournfully and clear
    F                   G                 C         Am
For those who died that Eastertide in the springing of the year
        C         Em      G     C             Am               F
And the world did gaze in deep amaze at those fearless men and true
    Am       F          G                     C                 Am
Who bore the fight that freedom's light might shine through the Foggy Dew
