The Merry Ploughboy – Traditional Irish Music
Tab’d by wompton

Thumb down on the base note and up with the fingers on the rest of the chord

[VERSE 1]
       C            G7                                     C
Well I am the merry ploughboy, and I plough the fields all day.
      G7                                            C
Till sudden came across my mind, that I should run away
                      G7                                C
See I’ve always hated slavery, since the day that I was born.
        G7                                          C
So, I´m off to join the I.R.A. and I´m off tomorrow morn

[CHORUS]
          C                   G7 
So we´re off to Dublin in the green, in the green, 
                                   C
With the helmets glistening in the sun
          G7 
Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash 
                          C
To the echo of a Thompson Gun

[VERSE 2]
       C             G7                                      C
I’ll leave behind my old gray coat, and I’ll leave behind my plough.
      G7                                                         C
And I leave behind my horse and yoke, for no more I´ll need them now
                         G7                          C
And I’ll take my short revolver, and my bandolier of lead
    G7                                                 C
And live or die, I can but try, to avenge my country’s dead

[CHORUS]
          C                   G7 
So we´re off to Dublin in the green, in the green, 
                                   C
With the helmets glistening in the sun
          G7 
Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash 
                          C
To the echo of a Thompson Gun

[VERSE 3]
         C               G7                           C
And I’ll leave behind my Mary, She’s the girl that I adore
      G7                                                         C
And I wonder what she’ll think of me, when she hears the cannons roar
                    G7                   C
And when the war is over, and Ireland is free
       G7                                                       C
I will take her to the church to wed, and a rebel’s wife she’ll be

[CHORUS]
          C                    G7 
So we´re off to Dublin in the green, in the green, 
                                   C
With the helmets glistening in the sun
          G7 
Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash 
                          C
To the echo of a Thompson Gun
