The Irish Brigade – Roll Of Honour chords

Same chord progression for the full song. Enjoy.

[G] Read the roll of [Em] honour for [C] Ireland's bravest [G] men

We must be [Em] united in [Am] memory of the [D] ten,

[G] England you're a [Em] monster, don't [C] think that you have [G] won

We will never [C] be de[G]feated while Ireland [D] has such [G] sons.


In those dreary H-Block cages ten brave young Irishmen lay

Hungering for justice as their young lives ebbed away,

For their rights as Irish soldiers and to free their native land

They stood beside their leader - the gallant Bobby Sands.

Now they mourn Hughes in Bellaghy, Ray McCreesh in Armagh's hills

In those narrow streets of Derry they miss O'Hara still,

They so proudly gave their young lives to break Britannia's hold

Their names will be remembered as history unfolds.


Through the war torn streets of Ulster the black flags did sadly sway

To salute ten Irish martyrs the bravest of the brave,

Joe McDonnell, Martin Hurson, Kevin Lynch, Kieran Doherty

They gave their lives for freedom with Thomas McElwee.

Michael Devine from Derry you were the last to die

With your nine brave companions with the martyred dead you lie

Your souls cry out "Remember, our deaths were not in vain.

Fight on and make our homeland a nation once again !"
