     C            G         C      C
When apples still grow in November
     F              C               G     G
When blossoms still bloom from each tree
     F                F          C       Am
When leaves are still green in December
     G             G            Am    Am
It's then that our land will be free
  F          F             C        Am
I wander her hills and her valleys
    F                 F         Em    Em     
And still, through my sorrow, I see
  F             F          C        Am        
A land that has never know freedom
    G        G          Am     Am
And only her rivers run free           

  C            G            C        C
I drink to the death of her manhood
      F          C           G      G
Those men, who'd rather have died
        F           F              C        Am
Than to live in the cold chains of bondage
   G                G            Am      Am
To bring back their rights, were denied
   F             F           C        Am
Oh where are you now when we need you
     F               F             Em    Em
What burns where the flame used to be
        F              F             C       Am  
Are you gone, like the snows of last winter
         G        G          Am     Am
And will only our rivers run free  
    C        G               C       C
How sweet is life, but we're crying
    F          C               G      G
How mellow the wine, but we're dry
    F            F              C      Am
How fragrant the rose, but it's dying
    G          G            Am     Am
How gentle the wind, but it sighs
     F          F               C       Am
What good is in youth when it's ageing
     F         F               Em      Em
What joy is in eyes that can't see
             F         F            C        Am     
When there's sorrow in sunshine and flowers
          G        G          Am     Am
And still only our rivers run free
