Chorus:
E               A               E               B
Make it one! For Washington and all his gallant men,
E                               B
One for the girl that once was mine;
        E               A               E       B
Make it one! For the darling boy I'll never see again,
        E       A       E           A  B      E
And don't forget the Blacksmith of Brandywine!


Verse 1:
        E               A               E               B
Our steed broke down in Brandywine, it was a sight to see:
        E               A               B                       E
A giant man with a hammer in his hand beneath the old oak tree,
     E              A                E          B
And all around him on the ground, in fatal disarray,
E                     A                      B                          E
A score of men who'll never fight again, nor travel on the King's highway.

E                       A               E               B
We dug his grave, and covered him o'er, and sadly wept a tear,
        E               A                       B               E
And passed the day a-ridin' on our way till we met with a musketeer.
        E               A               E               B
From him we learned the story of a brave and angry man,
        E               A               B               E
Who undertook the British enemy with a hammer in his hand.


Chorus:
E               A               E               B
Make it one! For Washington and all his gallant men,
E                               B
One for the girl that once was mine;
        E               A               E       B
Make it one! For the darling boy I'll never see again,
        E       A       E           A  B      E
And don't forget the Blacksmith of Brandywine!


Verse 2:
E                     A         E               B
There lived a man in Chestertown away from the cannon's roar.
        E               A               B                       E
Of manner mild, his woman and child, no man could ever love more;
        E               A               E               B
But the Tories spoke a plot one day to waylay Washington,
E                       A               B                       E
He left his home and family alone, to the general he did run.

        E               A               E               B
His errand done, he journeyed home but sorrow there he found.
        E               A               B                       E
By British gun his wife and son lay still on the cold hard ground.
        E               A                             E            B
The blacksmith reached for his heavy sledge and he gave a practice swing,
E                             A         B                       E
They say on the line at Brandywine, you could hear his hammer sing.


Chorus:
E               A               E               B
Make it one! For Washington and all his gallant men,
E                               B
One for the girl that once was mine;
        E               A               E       B
Make it one! For the darling boy I'll never see again,
        E       A       E           A  B      E
And don't forget the Blacksmith of Brandywine!
