Runrig – Eirinn chords

Runrig - Eirinn (Ireland)

A very nice song that sings about the troubles of Ireland in the later parts of the 20th century

I'm pretty sure these are correct.
I prefer to finger pick this and strum the chorus, but listen to the song to find the bast way.

Standard Tuning

Intro: C, C/B, Am, F, Am, G, F

C C/B Am FWhat makes me walk through Ireland's shrines
Am G CAnd Ireland's holy shores
C C/B Am FTo see a country crucified
Am G CYour beauty crowned in thorns
C C/B Am FAnd as I watch that wondrous cross
Dm G/D GThat's been hewn down and severed in two
C AmThere's something here
F AmThat draws me near
F G CTo wear the green for you
C, G, Am, F, C, G, C
C C/B Am FTo see you there blood brother Gael

C C/B Am FLaughter and music through the night
Dm G/D GYour freedom in the dark
C Am F AmTonight I swear I'd gladly wear
F G CThe green next to my heart
C G Am F C G CE---irinn E----irinn
From the long and rolling Antrim hills Through the wilds of Donegal The songs of history are sung Every stone on every wall But here in our land how can we stand And wash our hands of shame When the sins of generations fall Across the green like rain Here one world window opens wide And demons they show face Some of your men have taken seeds of truth And planted fields of hate This way has never won a war And I fear that when the harvest comes You'll see your freedom fall on stoney ground And the green overgrown [Chorus] Enjoy!
