[Intro]
D Em
A G D
D C Em
A G D

[Verse]
    D                         Em
I remember the day, it stands clear in my mind
         A                    G        D
We stood down by Dunlaoire to wave you goodbye
D                                        Em
Your ma was quietly weeping, there was a tear in her eye
      A           A7            D
As we sent you to Gallipoli to die

              D                           Em
You looked so young as you stood there, a glint in your eye
        A                       G              D
And you sang rebel songs as the streamers flew high
D                       Em
Your ma turned away and I heard a sigh
           A          A7           D
God you're sailing to Gallipoli to die

[Chorus]
D                             Em
You were all that we had your mammy and me
         A                           G              D
When you marched head erect you were proud as could be
       D                C                          Em
And it killed your poor ma and it's slowly killing me
                          A           G                D
You were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli

[Verse]
        D                         Em
We only got the one letter and we knew right away
        A                            G               D
It said deepest regrets your son was bold and he was brave
         D                      Em
You were only eighteen yet your mammy and I
        A     A7           D
Let you go to Gallipoli to die.

[Chorus]
D                             Em
You were all that we had your mammy and me
         A                           G              D
When you marched head erect you were proud as could be
       D                C                          Em
And it killed your poor ma and it's slowly killing me
                          A           G                D
You were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli

[Verse]
           D                                Em     
You fought for the wrong country,you fought for the wrong cause
         A                    G               D
And your ma often said it was Ireland's great loss
          D                                     Em
All those fine young men who marched to foreign shores to fight the wars
         A               A7         D
When the greatest war of all was at home.

[Chorus] x2
D                             Em
You were all that we had your mammy and me
         A                           G              D
When you marched head erect you were proud as could be
       D                C                          Em
And it killed your poor ma and it's slowly killing me
                          A           G                D
You were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli
