Runrig - Eirinn (Ireland) A very nice song that sings about the troubles of Ireland in the later parts of the 20th century I'm pretty sure these are correct. I prefer to finger pick this and strum the chorus, but listen to the song to find the bast way. Standard Tuning Intro: C, C/B, Am, F, Am, G, F C C/B Am F What makes me walk through Ireland's shrines Am G C And Ireland's holy shores C C/B Am F To see a country crucified Am G C Your beauty crowned in thorns C C/B Am F And as I watch that wondrous cross Dm G/D G That's been hewn down and severed in two C Am There's something here F Am That draws me near F G C To wear the green for you C, G, Am, F, C, G, C C C/B Am F To see you there blood brother Gael Am G C The face, the tongue my own C C/B Am F Many places in my own country Am G C Could not make me feel more at home C C/B Am F Laughter and music through the night Dm G/D G Your freedom in the dark C Am F Am Tonight I swear I'd gladly wear F G C The green next to my heart C G Am F C G C E---irinn E----irinn From the long and rolling Antrim hills Through the wilds of Donegal The songs of history are sung Every stone on every wall But here in our land how can we stand And wash our hands of shame When the sins of generations fall Across the green like rain Here one world window opens wide And demons they show face Some of your men have taken seeds of truth And planted fields of hate This way has never won a war And I fear that when the harvest comes You'll see your freedom fall on stoney ground And the green overgrown [Chorus] Enjoy!
