Carlos Nunez - Viva La Quince Brigada chords

      
[C]Ten years be[G]fore I saw the [C]light of morning
A comradeship of [F]heroes was laid
From every corner of the [G]world came sailing
The Fifteenth [F]International [C]Brigade
 
They came to stand beside the Spanish people
To try and stem the rising fascist tide
Franco's allies were the powerful and wealthy
Frank Ryan's men came from the other side
 
Even the olives were bleeding
As the battle for Madrid it thundered on
Truth and love against the force of evil
Brotherhood against the fascist clan
FViva la Quince Brigada
'No Pasaran', [G]the pledge that [C]made them fight 'Adelante' is the cry around [Am]the hillside [F]Let us [G]all remember [C]them tonight Bob Hilliard was a Church of Ireland pastor Form Killarney across the Pyrenees he came From Derry came a brave young Christian Brother Side by side they fought and died in Spain Tommy Woods age seventeen died in Cordoba With Na Fianna he learned to hold his gun From Dublin to the Villa del Rio Where he fought and died beneath the blazing sun Viva la Quince Brigada 'No Pasaran', the pledge that made them fight 'Adelante' is the cry around the hillside Let us all remember them tonight Many Irishmen heard the call of Franco Joined Hitler and Mussolini too Propaganda from the pulpit and newspapers Helped O'Duffy to enlist his crew The word came from Maynooth, 'support the Nazis' The men of cloth failed again When the Bishops blessed the Blueshirts in Dun Laoghaire As they sailed beneath the swastika to Spain Viva la Quinte Brigada 'No Pasaran', the pledge that made them fight 'Adelante' is the cry around the hillside Let us all remember them tonight This song is a tribute to Frank Ryan Kit Conway and Dinny Coady too Peter Daly, Charlie Regan and Hugh Bonar Though many died I can but name a few Danny Boyle, Blaser-Brown and Charlie Donnelly Liam Tumilson and Jim Straney from the Falls Jack Nalty, Tommy Patton and Frank Conroy Jim Foley, Tony Fox and Dick O'Neill
