Johnny Mcevoy – Michael Collins chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
G C GOn a far off August day, cold young men in ambush lay,
DOn a roadside on a hill where flowers grow,
G C GSo much hate for one so young, who was right and who was wrong,
D GThough a thousand years may pass we'll never know.
[Chorus]
G CCandles dripping blood, they placed beside your shoulders,
D GRosary beads like teardrops on your fin-gers,
CFriends and comrades standin by, in their grief they wonder why,
D GMichael in their hour of need you had to go.
[Verse 2]
G C GAnd when evening twilight came, gentle fell the August rain,
DOh but you lay still and silent on the ground,
G C GAs we hung our heads in prayer, in our sorrow and despair,
D GWe wondered was it friend or foe who shot you down,
[Chorus]
G CCandles dripping blood, they placed beside your shoulders,
D GRosary beads like teardrops on your fin-gers,
CFriends and comrades standin by, in their grief they wonder why,
D GMichael in their hour of need you had to go.
[Instrumental] |G |C |C |G [chorus]
G C GNow the flame that you held high, when you called out to the sky,
DTo end this senseless killing and this shame,
G C GHas now passed to other hands and is carried through the land
D GBy some not fit to even speak your name.
[Chorus]
G CCandles dripping blood, they placed beside your shoulders,
D GRosary beads like teardrops on your fin-gers,
CFriends and comrades standin by, in their grief they wonder why,
D GMichael in their hour of need you had to go.
[Outro]
D GMichael in their hour of need, why did you go.
