The Rising Of The Moon chords
John Keegan Leo Casey (to the tune of The Wearing Of The Green)

D A G D A D *

D AAnd come, tell me Sean O'Farrell, tell me why you hurry so?
G D A D"Hush a bhuachaill, hush and listen", and his cheeks were all aglow,
A"I bear orders from the captain: get you ready quick and soon,
G D A Dfor the pikes must be together by the rising of the moon"
D ABy the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon,
G D A Dfor the pikes must be together at the rising of the moon
D A"And come tell me Sean O'Farrell, where the gath'rin is to be?"
G D A D"In the old spot by the river, quite well known to you and me.
AOne more word for signal token: whistle out the marchin' tune,
G D A Dwith your pike upon your shoulder, at the rising of the moon."
D AAt the rising of the moon, at the rising of the moon,
G D A Dwith your pike upon your shoulder, at the rising of the moon.
D AOut from many a mud wall cabin eyes were watching through the night,
G D A D many a manly heart was beatin, for the blessed morning light.
AMurmurs ran along the valleys to the banshee's lonely croon,
G D A Dand a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon.
D ABy the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon,
G D A Dand a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon
D AAll along that singing river that black mass of men was seen,
G D A Dhigh above their shining weapons, flew their own beloved green.
A"Death to every foe and traitor! Whistle out the marching tune."
G D A DAnd hurrah my boys for freedom; 'tis the rising of the moon".
D ATis the rising of the moon, tis the rising of the moon,
G D A Dand hurrah my boys for freedom; 'tis the rising of the moon".
D AWell they fought for poor old Ireland, and full bitter was their fate,
G D A Doh what glorious pride and sorrow, fills the name of ninety-eight!
AYet, thank God, e'en still are beating hearts in manhood burning noon,
G D A Dwho would follow in their footsteps, at the risin' of the moon
D ABy the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon,
G D A Dwho would follow in their footsteps, at the risin' of the moon.
