Liam Clancy - Patriot Game


CAPO: 1st Fret




[INTRO:] C  G  D  G

[VERSE 1:]
            C     G           D            G
Come all ye young rebels, and list while I sing
        D             G      C        G        Em
For the love of one's country___ is a terrible thing
   D        G    C        G          Em
It banishes fear with the speed of a flame
       G              C    G      D       G     C  G  D  G
And it makes us all a part of the patriot game


[VERSE 2:]
   C         G               D            G
My name is O'Hanlon and I've just gone sixteen
   D          G   C     G           Em
My home is in Monaghan, where I was weaned
     D              G     C     G          Em
I've learned all my life, cruel England to blame
    G        C    G      D       G 
And so I'm a part of the patriot game


[VERSE 3:]
                C     G       D         G
It's nearly two years since I wandered away
         D        G     C          G      Em
With the local battalion___ of the bold IRA
     D           G      C      G          Em
I've read of our heroes, and I wanted the same
   G           C    G      D       G     C  G  D  G
To play out my part in the patriot game


[VERSE 4:]
     C           G            D           G
They told me how Connolly was shot in the chair
    D               G     C    G            Em
His wounds from the battle all bleeding and bare
    D         G       C    G            Em
His fine body twisted, all battered and lame
     G            C    G      D       G 
They soon made me part of the patriot game


[VERSE 5:]
                C    G       D              G
This Ireland of ours has for long been half free
    D            G    C     G           Em
Six counties are under John Bull's tyranny
     D          G      C      G            Em
So I gave up my boyhood___ to drill and to train
   G           C    G      D       G     C  G  D  G
To play my own part in the patriot game


[VERSE 6:]
             C   G        D        G
And now as I lie here, my body all holes
  D              G       C    G            Em
I think of those traitors who bargained in souls
  D            G    C    G         Em
I wish that my rifle had given the same
         G             C    G       D       G     C  G  D  G
To those quislings who sold out the patriot game

Thank you for the compliment.
Having an Irish name, I assume you know that most Irish songs are either sad or drinking or getting a leg over, LOL.
