Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]

CSo sure l'm an Ulster Orangeman,
Am7from Erin's isle I came,
G G7To see my British brethren
C Am Call of honour and of fame,
CAnd to tell them of my forefathers
Am Gwho fought in days of yore,
G7That I might have the right to wear
C G Cthe sash my father wore!
[Chorus]
CSure it is old and it is beautiful
Am7and it's colours they are fine,
G G7it was worn at Derry, Aughrim
C Am CEnniskillen and the Boyne.
Oh me father often wore it as a youth
Am Gin the bygone days of yore
G7and it’s on the twelth I loved to wear
C G Cthe sash my father wore.
[Verse 2]
CFor those brave men who crossed the Boyne,
Am7have not fought or died in vain,
G G7Our Unity, Religion, Laws,
C Am Cand Freedom to maintain,
Am GIf the call should come we'll follow the drum,
G7and cross that river once more
C G CThat tomorrow's Ulsterman may wear the sash my father wore!
[Chorus]
CSure it is old and it is beautiful
Am7and it's colours they are fine,
G G7it was worn at Derry, Aughrim
C AmEnniskillen and the Boyne.
COh me father often wore it as a youth
Am Gin the bygone days of yore
G7and it’s on the twelfth I loved to wear
C G Cthe sash my father wore.
[Verse 2]
CAnd when some day, across the sea,
Am7to Antrim's shore you come,
G G7We'll welcome you in royal style,
C Am Cto the sound of flute and drum
Am GAnd Ulster's hills shall echo still,
G7from Rathlin to Dromore
C G CAs we sing again the loyal strain of the sash my father wore!
