[Intro]
D

[Verse 1]
 D                                  A                    D
For those who are in love there's a song that's warm and tender
    G                          D               A
For those who are oppressed in song you can protest
   D                       A                D
So liberate your mind and give your soul expression
 G                      A                 D     
Open up your heart I'll sing for you this song.

[Chorus]
    D                          
Let the people sing their stories and their songs
        G                      D
And the music of their native land
                                                       Bm
Their lullabies and battle cries and songs of hope and joy
    A              A7
So join us hand in hand
  D                           G                      D
All across this ancient land, throughout the test of time
                                   Bm
It was music that kept our spirits free
      A                  D
Those songs of yours and mine

[Verse 2]
  D                              A                   D
It was back in ancient times the bard would tell his story
       G                            D               A
Of the heros of the villain,of the chieftain in the glen
    D                          A                  D
Through Elizabethan times and Cromwellian war and fury
G                                      A               D
Put our pipers to the sword killed our harpers and our bards

[Chorus]
    D                          
Let the people sing their stories and their songs
        G                      D
And the music of their native land
                                                       Bm
Their lullabies and battle cries and songs of hope and joy
    A              A7
So join us hand in hand
  D                           G                      D
All across this ancient land, throughout the test of time
                                   Bm
It was music that kept our spirits free
      A                  D
Those songs of yours and mine

[Verse 3]
D                         A              D
Oh Ireland land of song your music lives forever
       G                               D                 A
In its valleys and its mountains, in our hills and in our glens
    D                          A              D
Our music has survived through famine and oppression
G                            A                 D
To the generationgs gone I'll sing for you this song

[Chorus]
    D                          
Let the people sing their stories and their songs
        G                      D
And the music of their native land
                                                       Bm
Their lullabies and battle cries and songs of hope and joy
    A              A7
So join us hand in hand
  D                           G                    D
All across this ancient land, throughout the test of time
                                   Bm
It was music that kept our spirits free
      A                  D
Those songs of yours and mine

[Chorus 2]
     D          G                       D
This land is your land, this land is my land,
                  A                         D
From the northern highlands, to the western islands,
                  G                          D
From the hills of Kerry, to the streets of free Derry,
A                              D
This land was made for you and me

[Verse 2]
         G                      D              A                         D
As I was walking by the Shannon water, hand in hand there with my little daughter,
                     G                          D
Hear the church bell ringing, and the children singing,
A                              D
This land was made for you and me.

[Chorus 2]
     D          G                       D
This land is your land, this land is my land,
                  A                         D
From the northern highlands, to the western islands,
                  G                          D
From the hills of Kerry, to the streets of free Derry,
A                              D
This land was made for you and me

[Verse 3]
                  G                       D
So we climbed the mountain by the crystal fountain,
                 A                       D
And we heard the wave- roar by the rocky seashore,
                G                    D
Her eyes were gleamin, she cried oh Daddy
A                              D
This land was made for you and me.

[Chorus 2]
     D          G                       D
This land is your land, this land is my land,
                  A                         D
From the northern highlands, to the western islands,
                  G                         D
From the hills of Kerry,to the streets of free Derry,
A                              D
This land was made for you and me

[Verse 4]
                  G                    D
So I walked her home ,by the village steaple,
            A                    D
Proud of my country, proud of my people,
               G                                 D
Of the men who cried there, and the men who died there singing,
A                             D
This land was made for you and me.

[Chorus 2]
     D          G                       D
This land is your land, this land is my land,
                  A                         D
From the northern highlands, to the western islands,
                  G                          D
From the hills of Kerry, to the streets of free Derry,
A                              D
This land was made for you and me
