For Nolan's Irish Pub Session Players


           C                F          C          Am
What's the news, what's the news oh my bold Shelmalier
          C              G             C
With your long barrelled guns from the sea
           C           F              C         Am
Say what wind from the south brings a messenger here
          C           G            C
With the hymn of the dawn for the free
       F                      C
Goodly news, goodly news do I bring youth of Forth
       F                         G
Goodly news shall you hear Bargy man
        C             F             C            Am
For the boys march at dawn from the south to the north
       C         G             C
Led by Kelly the boy from Killane

        C           F              C            Am
Tell me who is that giant with the gold curling hair
       C            G            C
He who rides at the head of your band
      C           F                C         Am
Seven feet is his height with some inches to spare
       C            G            C
And he looks like a king in command
       F                           C
Ah my boys that's the pride of the bold Shelmaliers
            F                    G
'Mongst our greatest of hero's a man
           C          F           C             Am
Fling your beavers aloft and give three ringing cheers
          C        G             C
For John Kelly the boy from Killane

      C          F              C          Am
Enniscorthy's in flames and old Wexford is won
        C        G              C
And tomorrow the Barrow we will cross
     C             F            C         Am
On a hill o'er the town we have planted a gun
          C          G          C
That will batter the gateway to Ross
        F                            C
All the Forth men and Bargy men will march o'er the heath
           F                     G
With brave Harvey to lead in the van
        C           F           C           Am
But the foremost of all in that grim gap of death
        C         G            C
Will be Kelly the boy from Killane

        C           F            C           Am
But the gold sun of freedom grew darkened at Ross
       C          G            C
As it set by the Slaney's red waves
         C                F           C         Am
And poor Wexford stripped naked, hung high on a cross
         C                G            C
With her heart pierced by traitors and slaves
      F                 C
Glory-o, glory-o to her brave sons who died
        F                          G
For the cause of long down-trodden man
      C          F              C           Am
Glory-o to Mount Leinster's own darling and pride
          C         G            C
Dauntless Kelly the boy from Killane
