[Intro]
Dm Bb Gm Am (x2)

[Verse 1]
Dm
Well it was Sunday bloody Sunday
                         F
When they shot the people there
   Dm
The crys of thirteen martyrs
                     Am
Filled the free Derry air.
        Dm
Is there any one amongst you
                       F
Dare to blame it on the kids?
     Dm
Not a soldier boy was bleeding
                             
When they nailed the coffin lidds!

[Chorus] (x2)
F             C
Sunday bloody Sunday
       Bb           Am
Bloody Sunday's the day!

[Verse 2]
Dm
You claim to be majority
                           F
Well you know that it's a lie
       Dm
You're really a minority
                      Am
On this sweet emerald isle.
       Dm
When Stormont bans our marchers
                      F
They've got a lot to learn
     Dm
Internment is no answer

It's those mother's turn to burn!

[Chorus] (x2)
F             C
Sunday bloody Sunday
       Bb           Am
Bloody Sunday's the day!

[Verse 3]
Dm
You anglo pigs and scotties
                     F
Sent to colonize the north
    Dm
You wave your bloody Union Jack
                       Am
And you know what it's worth!
    Dm
How dare you hold to ransom
                    F
A people proud and free
     Dm
Keep Ireland for the irish

Put the english back to sea

[Chorus] (x2)
F             C
Sunday bloody Sunday
       Bb           Am
Bloody Sunday's the day!

[Verse 4]
Dm
Yes it's always bloody Sunday
                      F
In the concentration camps
         Dm
Keep Falls and free forever
                         Am
From the bloody english hands
    Dm
Repatriate to britain
                       F
All of you who call it home
      Dm
Leave Ireland to the irish

Not for London or for Rome

[Chorus] (x2)
F             C
Sunday bloody Sunday
       Bb           Am
Bloody Sunday's the day!

[Outro]
F C Dm Bb Am
Dm Bb Gm Am
