For / fueling the / engine of a / bloody cruel / war , /
          / F                 / Bb                 / C      /
In my / forefathers' / home far a - / way. /

Who / fled the first / Famine wearing / all that they / owned, /

Were / called Navi - / gators, all / ragged and / torn, /  and

Wher - / ever their / children were / born. / / /

Their / sons have no / politics, / none can  re - / call, /
        / F                     / CG               / Bb                / C     /
All - / egiance from / long gener - / ations be -  / fore, /
       / F                / CG                     / Bb           / F    /
Oh, / this war or / that name can't / matter at / all, /
     / F                    / Bb                / C      /
Or / be cause e - / nough for to / war, / and.

Meanwhile my / babies are / safe in their / homes, /

While / knee-cappers / nail their poor / Dads to the / floor, / / and

Teach them to / hate and to / die. / / /

F                       / C                    / Bb                   / F      / /
It's those cruel / beggars who / spurn the fair / coin, / /

The / Peace for their / kids they could / take at their / will, /
                 / F                    / CG           / Bb                 / F           / /
Since the / day old King / Billy pre - / vailed at the / Boyne, / /
              / F                                 / Bb                               / C        / /
They've / bombed and they've / maimed and they've / killed. / /
                 / F               / C                 / Bb             / F        / /
Now they / cry out for / money and / wail at the / door, / / but
F                              / C               / Bb       / C           /
Home Rule or Re - / public, 'tis / all of it / shame, /  and
    / F                  / C                       / Bb             / F      / /
A / curse for us / here who want / nothing of / war, / /
           / F                / C                 / F         / / /
We're / kindred in / nothing but / name. / / /

All / rights and all / wrongs have long / since blown a - / way, / /

"Re - / member the / Boyne" they will / cry out in / vain, / /
