Flogging Molly - Oliver Boy chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I saw that there was only one tab out there of this song, and it was not super 
accurate as far as I could tell. So I did my own version. 

It's pretty simple for most of the song, the only difficult part is the fast riff 
at the end of some of the verse phrases (F-C-A-D) I think bar chords make it 
easiest to play, but that's just me. Other than that the song can be played in 
open position for the other chords.


I copied the lyrics from some site, and I think those might not be correct, but 
the chords should all be good. 

Enjoy! Let me know if I messed it up!

       Dm                       
Oh, Oliver boy, what did you do?

        Bb
But crushed a hand you never shook

        A                                       Dm
Then robbed the rights of people to be free


        Dm
Oh, Oliver boy, it's a terrible state

        Bb
You left behind the worse of race

        A                                       Dm
Where dignity and pride fought for their place


        C               F              
Oh, Oliver boy now you are gone

        A                       Dm
And we're still here where we belong

        A                                               (Dm?)
Forgiveness being our strength you'll never see

Chord Break goes Real fast (F-C-A-Dm)

        Dm                      
Now the sunshine's on the page I write

                Bb
Though it's raining hard in Palestine

                A                                       Dm
Though lands are promised, lands when will we see?


           Dm
So don't tell me that your God's my God

        Bb
I don't think they even care at all

        A                                                  Dm
Just a phantom man behind the curtain lies does he



        C                       F
Oh, listen to me bark out loud

        A                       Dm
Without a voice and a little growl

C               F                      A
Snapping at the hills I wait for something more to change

        A
The more they stay the same



Dm
Oliver boy, it's the same violation

Bb
Oliver boy, just the clothes are different

F
Oliver boy, it's the same old story

A
Where there's blood there's definite glory



Dm
Look into his empty eyes

Bb
Fed upon my parasites

A
His beauty's ugly

                        Dm
Head devours it's pride



                Dm
While the borders of our hate created

Bb
Nothing more than to reach our fate

A                                               Dm
Trapped between our comfort and our grind



C                       F
So stand along the graveyard wall

        A                               Dm
And watch the souls perform this song

C                       F
Sickening lust, the dead above

A                                       A
As the mourners come to pray, the living stay away


Dm
Oliver boy, it's the same violation

Bb
Oliver boy, just the clothes are different

F
Oliver boy, it's the same old story

A
Where there's blood there's definite glory



Dm
Oliver boy, someone stands there

Bb
Oliver boy, just to count the guns, yeah

F
Oliver boy, you're dead but listen

A
You were wrong but we're no different

(Chords Behind the Solo)
Dm-Bb-A-Dm
B-F-(A x 2)

Dm
Marching to the left

Bb
Everyone in step

F
Don't ask the question

A
Why we're here with no direction



Dm
Marching to the right

Bb
This is not our fight

F
The curse of friction

A
Born of man and contradiction



Dm
Oliver boy, it's the same violation

Bb
Oliver boy, just the clothes are different

F
Oliver boy, it's the same old story

A
Where there's blood there's definite glory



Dm
Oliver boy, someone stands there

Bb
Oliver boy, just to count the guns, yeah

F
Oliver boy, you're dead but listen

A
You were wrong but we're no different

Dm
All of our boys


Dm
Now the sunshine's on the page I write

                Bb               (A)-Dm
Though it's raining hard in Palestine
