[Verse 1]

    Am                  G               C    G       Am
  As down the glen one Easter morn to a city fair rode I,
    Am                  G              C         G        Am
  There armed lines of marching men in squadrons passed me by;
   C                   G      Am                    Em      Am
  No pipe did hum, nor battle drum did sound it's loud tattoo,
          Am                    G                   C               F     Am
  But the Angelus bell o'er the Liffey's swell rang out through the Foggy Dew.


[Verse 2]

        Am                G                C            G       Am
  Right proudly high o'er Dublin Town they hung out the flag of war,
       Am                  G                 C        G      Am
  Twas better die neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud El Bar;
      C                  G     Am                    Em       Am
  And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through,
        Am                           G                       C              F     Am
  While Brittania's sons, with their long range guns, sailed in through the Foggy Dew.


[Verse 3]

         Am                        G                  C          G       Am
  O, the night fell black, and the rifles crack made "Perfidious Albion" reel,
           Am                 G                    C              G        Am
  'Mid the leaden rain, seven tongues of flame did shine o'er the lines of steel;
          C                G                       Am          Em      Am
  By each shinning blade a prayer was said that to Ireland her sons be true,
           Am                      G                       C            F     Am
  And when morning broke still the war flag shook out it's folds in the Foggy Dew.


[Verse 4]

        Am               G                  C             G        Am
  'Twas England bade our Wild Geese go that small nations might be free,
            Am                   G                    C             G           Am
  But their lonely graves are by Suvla's waves or the fringe of the Great North Sea.
     C                G        Am                      Em        Am
  Oh had they died by Pearse's side or had fought with Cathal Brugha,
        Am                        G                         C             F     Am
  Their names we'd keep where the Fenians sleep, 'neath the shroud of the Foggy Dew


[Verse 5]

          Am                    G                  C         G   Am
  But the bravest fell, and the requiem bell rang mournfully and clear,
      Am                 G                 C             G   Am
  For those who died the Eastertide in the springtime of the year.
            C                   G    Am                      Em      Am
  While the world did gaze with deep amaze at those fearless men but few,
      Am                  G                     C                 F     Am
  Who bore the fight that freedom's light might shine through the Foggy Dew,


[Verse 6]

       Am                 G                  C          G         Am
  Back through the glen I rode again, and my heart with grief was sore,
        Am               G                 C     G         Am
  For I parted then with valient men who I never shall see more;
      C                 G        Am                    Em       Am
  But to and from in my dreams I go, and I'd kneel and pray for you,
      Am              G                      C           F     Am
  For slavery fled, O glorious dead when you fell in the Foggy Dew.

Playing it the way the Young Dubliners play it, i believe the F (the second to last chord of each verse) ought to be an Em. Thanks for the tab!

I think it might ought to be G instead of F or Em?

Verse 1
Am G Em C Em Am
T'was down the glen one Easter morn to a city fair rode I,
Am G Em C Em Am
There armed lines of marching men in squadrons passed me by;
C G Em C Am
No pipe did hum, nor battle drum did sound it's dread tattoo,
Am G Em C Em Am
But the Angelus bell o'er the Liffey's swell rang out through the Foggy Dew.

Remaining verses proceed with the same pattern.
