Transpose:
I was surprised to see how many inaccurate tabs there are out there.
Does anyone listen to them before they rate them anymore?
                                                                 Capo on 3rd like all
other tabs say, just use the shapes provided and it will all become clear. Be a bit 
with the picking and strumming. Theres a lot of bass runs in the song which I haven’t
but they aren’t too hard to figure out from this, but this does me fine. The asus4 parts 
just hammer ons and pull offs, add them in as you see fit.

Heres the chords as I use them. I hope this is of some help to you. Please comment, enjoy!

Intro D, d/a D, D/a, D, d/a.

Verse:

D d/a g em7Well, how do you do, young Willie McBride
a asus4 a g a asus4Do you mind if I sit here, down by your graveside
D d/a g em7And rest for awhile 'neath the warm summer sun
a asus4 a g a asus4I've been walking all day, and I'm nearly done
D d/a g em7I see by your gravestone you are only nineteen
a asus4 a g a asus4When you joined the great fallen in nineteen-sixteen
D d/a g em7I hope you died well and I hope you died clean
a asus4 a g a asus4Or, young Willie McBride, was it slow and obscene
Chorus
a g DDid they beat the drum slowly, did they play the fife flowly
a g a asus4Did they sound the Death March as they lowered you down
g D d/bDid the band play The Last Post in chorus
D g a D D/a D d/aDid the pipes play the Flowers of the Forest
thats the bulk of it. just stick the following words over the appropriate parts: Did you leave 'ere wife or a sweetheart behind In some faithful heart is your memory enshrined Although you died back in nineteen-sixteen In that faithful heart are you forever nineteen Or are you a stranger without even a name Enclosed then forever behind a glass frame In an old photograph, torn, battered and stained And faded to yellow in brown leather frame (Chorus) The sun, now it shines on the green fields of France There's a warm summer breeze that makes the red poppies dance And look how the sun shines from under the clouds There's no gas, no barbed wire, there's no gun firing now But here in this graveyard it's still no man's land The countless white crosses stand mute in the sand To man's blind indifference to his fellow man To a whole generation that were butchered and damned (Chorus) Ah, young Willie McBride, I can't help wonder why Do those that lie here know why did they die And did they believe when they answered the cause Did they really believe that this war would end wars Well, the sorrow, the suffering, the glory, the pain The killing and dying was all done in vain For, young Willie McBride, it all happened again And again and again and again and again! (Chorus)
