Intro
D   G   D   Bm   A    D

D GI am Kilrain and I'm a fightin' man and I come from County Clare
D BmAnd the Brits would hang me for a Fenian so I took me leave of there
D GAnd I crossed the ocean in the "Arrianne", the vilest tub afloat
D BmAnd the captain's brother was a railroad man and he met us at the boat
A G ASo I joined up with the 20th Maine like I said my friend I'm a fighting man
D Em F#m G And we're marchin' south in the pouring rain
A DWe're all goin' down to Dixieland
D GI am Kilrain of the 20th Maine and we fight for Chamberlain
D Bm'Cause he stood right with us when the Johnnies came like a banshee on the wind
D GIn the smoke smeared hell of Gettysburg many a mother wept
D BmFor many a good boy died there, sure, and the air smelt just like death
A G AI am the Kilrain of the 20th Maine and I marched to hell and back again
D Em F#m G For Colonel Joshua Chamberlain -
A Gwe're all goin' down to Dixieland
D GI am the Kilrain of the 20th Maine and I damn all gentlemen
D BmWhose only worth is their father's name and the sweat of a workin' man
D GWell we come from the farms and the city streets and a hundred foreign lands
D BmAnd we spilled our blood in the battle's heat Now we're all Americans
A G AI am the Kilrain of the 20th Maine did I tell you friend I'm a fightin' man
D Em F#m G And I'll not be back this way again,
A G'cause we're all goin' down to Dixieland
