it's best to play it on the low e string as opposed to open
on the D string)

(NOTE: This is actually a combination of a bass solo and an electric guitar
solo condensed for one guitar to make playing the section easier. Again, to
get a deeper sound to mimic the bass I am setting the fingering for the lower
strings for the bass part.)

Ireland You Are Free Lyrics


Ah through the eyes of her children
The story is told
Of another long winter
Of fighting the cold
And as we harvest the land
And we hope and we pray
For another brave son
As he marches away

And I say
Ireland you are free
You'll always be
You'll always be

And as our spirit is strong
And we carry along
All our hopes and our dreams
One day will be real 
And all those mothers that cried
Because their little boys died
All their tears born of sorrow 
Will turn for tomorrow

And I say
Ireland you are free
You'll always be
You'll always be
And I say
Ireland you are free
You'll always be
You'll always be

Ah through the eyes of her children
The story is told
Of another long winter
Of fighting the cold
And as we harvest the land
And we hope and we pray
For another brave son
As he goes marching away

And I say
Ireland you are free
You'll always be
You'll always be
And I say
Ireland you are free
You'll always be
You'll always be

Through the eyes of her children
The story is told
All our hopes and our dreams
One day will be real
