[Verse]
Am G EmI was born on a Dublin street where the Royal drums do beat,
Amand the loving English feet they tramped all over us.
C G EmAnd each and every night when me Dad would come home tight
Am G Amhe'd invite the neighbours outside with this chorus:
[Chorus]
Am G EmCome out, ye black and tans; come out and fight me like a man!
AmShow your wives how you won medals down in Flanders.
C G EmTell them how the IRA made you run like hell away,
Am G Amfrom the green and lovely lanes in Killashandra.
[Interlude] Am G Am [Verse]
Am G EmCome, tell us how you slew them poor Arabs two by two:
Amlike the Zulus they had spears and bows and arrows.
C G EmTell us how you slew each one with your sixteen-pounder gun
Am G Amand you frightened them poor natives to the marrow.
[Chorus]
Am G EmCome out, ye black and tans; come out and fight me like a man!
AmShow your wives how you won medals down in Flanders.
C G EmTell them how the IRA made you run like hell away,
Am G Amfrom the green and lovely lanes in Killashandra.
[Verse]
Am G EmCome on, let us hear you tell how you slaughtered great Parnell.
AmHow you fought them well and truly persecuted.
C G EmWhere are those sneers and jeers that you bravely let us hear
Am G Amwhen our heroes of sixteen were executed.
[Chorus]
Am G EmCome out, ye black and tans; come out and fight me like a man!
AmShow your wives how you won medals down in Flanders.
C G EmTell them how the IRA made you run like hell away,
Am G Amfrom the green and lovely lanes in Killashandra.
[Verse]
Am G EmWell, the day is coming fast, and the time is here at last
Amwhen each yeoman will be cast aside before us.
C G EmAnd if there be a need sure my sons will sing, "Godspeed!"
Am G Amwith a verse or two of Stephen Beehan's chorus.
[Chorus]
Am G EmCome out, ye black and tans; come out and fight me like a man!
AmShow your wives how you won medals down in Flanders.
C G EmTell them how the IRA made you run like hell away,
Am G Amfrom the green and lovely lanes in Killashandra.
