C Cadd9 G G7I missed a day or two of school, because I was called a fool
C Cadd9 G G7And beat around the place, because I was staring into space

C Cadd9There's mountains of coal on the docks
G G7He took some and rain into the cops
Am7 DAnd now we're packed off to school
Am7 Industrial school
D We'll learn the meaning of the word, meaning of the word
Am7 DAnd now we're locked up in school

[Just follows the same chords pattern] My uncle was sent to Daingean My Granda to Letterfrack And the child that was locked up there Never did come back Some were raped and some were tortured Some beaten and abused, Frightened little children, so lonely and so confused Now the Irish have their stories and their music thatís passed on From distant generations, who were kept down for so long But they also have the madness, child abuse and rage Sexual frustration passed down from another age Their language land and culture, their ancient pride was lost, And sexual repression was what religion cost. We have to break the cycle, cos itís still passed down boss We have to break the cycle before any more kids are lost
