About this tab version
Almost complete, just missing guitar 2 harmonys in the riffs. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]
E
There's a stranger on the road tonight
D
On the way to Soldierstown
E
A stranger with his coat pulled tight
G                       A
And his collar buttoned down
E
A stranger every sinner knows
D
A seasoned man of war
G
Marching to the fires of hell
A 
Scarred by the cannon's roar

[Chorus]
G
There is no choice, no compromise
E
Give up one of your kin
(Tar a thighearna tar a thi)
A
To save the other children
D                         E
To save your bone and skin
G
Tonight's the night, you must decide
E
Which son will stay or go
(Tar a thighearna tar a thi)
A
The devil rides in Soldierstown
B
His boots cut through the snow

[Chorus]
G
You can hear the screams in Belfast town
E
Or so the story goes
(Tar a thighearna tar a thi)
A
You can trace the sets of footprints
D                           E
In the deepest winter snows
G
There's nothing here in Soldierstown
E
Save misery and pain
(Tar a thighhearna tar a thi)
A
The crops all failed in Soldierstown
B
They never grew again

[Chorus]
G
I'll fight until one of us dies
E
He screamed into his face
(Tar a thighhearna tar a thi)
A
I admire your noble notion
D                                   E
Said the stranger, touched by grace
G
But first please let me show you
E
Where the young you gave me play
(Tar a thighhearna tar a thi)
A
In meadows filled with laughter
B
Growing wiser by the day

[Verse]
E5
One day your son may save you all
D5
From the hell of Soldierstown
E5
But take him back the stranger cried
G5                   A5
His patience wearing down
E5
A stranger came to Soldierstown
D5
When twenty years had passed
C5
Looking for his father
D5
Breathing slowly on the glass...

[Drums]

[Chorus]
G
There is no choice, no compromise
E
Give up one of your kin
(Tar a thighhearna tar a thi)
A
To save the other children
D
To save your bone and skin
G
Tonight's the night, you must decide
E
Which son will stay or go
(Tar a thighhearna tar a thi)
A
The devil rides in Soldierstown
B
His boots cut through the snow
G
You can here the screams in Belfast town
E
Or so the story goes
(Tar a thighhearna tar a thi)
A
You can trace the sets of footprints
D
In the deepest winter snows
G
There's nothing here in Soldierstown
E
Save misery and pain
(Tar a thighhearna tar a thi)
A
The devil rides in Soldierstown
B
He's smiling once again
