N.C.
When my love said to me
        C G                D
Meet me down by the gallow tree
         C   G        D
For it's sad news I bring
       C       G                      D
About this old town and all that it's offering
         C   G      D
Some say troubles abound
         C                  G                 D
Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down
D               G    D
One day we'll return here,
         C       G             D
When the Belfast Child sings again

N.C.                           D
Brothers sisters where are you now
      C          G                  D
As I look for you right through the crowd
       C        G     D
All my life here I've spent
        C                G                     D
With my faith in God the Church and the Government
         C   G      D
Some say troubles abound
         C                  G                 D
Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down

D               G    D
One day we'll return here,
         C       G              D
When the Belfast Child sings again

C G     D              x10


             C    G                   D
So come back Billy, won't you come on home
          C    G                    D
Come back Mary, you've been away so long
                C    G                   D
The streets are empty, and your mother's gone
              C     G                 D
The girls are crying, it's been oh so long
                  C      G         D
And your father's calling, come on home
                  C   G                   D
Won't you come on home, won't you come on home

C  G     D
C  G     D

          C   G                      D
Come back people, you've been gone a while
               C   G                  D
And the war is raging, in the Emerald Isle
                       C  G                  D
That's flesh and blood man, that's flesh and blood
                  C   G                D
All the girls are crying but all's not lost
                C    G                 D
The streets are empty, the streets are cold
                  C   G                   D
Won't you come on home, won't you come on home
C  G       D
C               G     
The streets are empty
          D
Life goes on
