John Keegan Leo Casey (to the tune of The Wearing Of The Green)

D A G D A D *

          D                               A
And come, tell me Sean O'Farrell, tell me why you hurry so?
 G                           D                A                D
"Hush a bhuachaill, hush and listen", and his cheeks were all aglow,
                                         A
"I bear orders from the captain: get you ready quick and soon,
        G               D             A             D
for the pikes must be together by the rising of the moon"

       D                          A
By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon,
        G               D             A             D
for the pikes must be together at the rising of the moon

          D                                 A
"And come tell me Sean O'Farrell, where the gath'rin is to be?"
        G               D                 A                D
"In the old spot by the river, quite well known to you and me.
                                        A
One more word for signal token: whistle out the marchin' tune,
          G              D                A             D
with your pike upon your shoulder, at the rising of the moon."

       D                          A
At the rising of the moon, at the rising of the moon,
          G              D                A             D
with your pike upon your shoulder, at the rising of the moon.

         D                               A
Out from many a mud wall cabin eyes were watching through the night,
       G               D               A               D  
many a manly heart was beatin, for the blessed morning light.
                                     A
Murmurs ran along the valleys to the banshee's lonely croon,
      G                   D               A             D
and a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon.

       D                          A
By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon,
      G                   D               A             D
and a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon 

     D                                  A
All along that singing river that black mass of men was seen,
      G                  D                   A           D
high above their shining weapons, flew their own beloved green.
                                         A
"Death to every foe and traitor! Whistle out the marching tune."
       G               D                 A             D
And hurrah my boys for freedom; 'tis the rising of the moon".

        D                           A
Tis the rising of the moon, tis the rising of the moon,
       G               D                 A             D
and hurrah my boys for freedom; 'tis the rising of the moon".

          D                                     A
Well they fought for poor old Ireland, and full bitter was their fate,
        G                  D                 A              D
oh what glorious pride and sorrow, fills the name of ninety-eight!
                                                 A
Yet, thank God, e'en still are beating hearts in manhood burning noon,
          G               D                 A             D
who would follow in their footsteps, at the risin' of the moon

       D                          A
By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon,
          G               D                 A             D
who would follow in their footsteps, at the risin' of the moon.
