Traditional Irish – Sean South From Garryowen chords

Sad are the homes around Garryowen, since they lost their gal land pride,
but the banshee cry, rings every vale along the Shannon side, that city of the 
ancient walls, the broken treaty stone, on dying fame surrounds your name Sean 
South From Garryowen.
G Cmaj GIt was on a dreary new year's eve as the shades of night came down,
Cmaj G/F# Em Cmaj Am7 D A lorry load of volunteers approched the border town,
E/F#/G Cmaj G/F# Em Cmaj Am7 DThere was men from Dublin and from Cork,Fermanagh and Tyrone,
E/F#/G Cmaj GAnd their leader was a Limerick man Sean South from Garryowen
G Cmaj GAnd as they moved along the streets up to the barrack door,
Cmaj G G/F# Em Cmaj Am7 DThey scorned the danger they might face,the fate that lay in store,
E/F#/G Cmaj G/F# Em Cmaj Am7 DThey were fighting for old Ireland,to claim their very own,
E/F#/G Cmaj GAnd the foremost of that gallant band was South from Garryowen.
G Cmaj GBut the sergent foiled their daring plan,he spied them through the door,
Cmaj G/F# Em Cmaj Am7 DThen the Sten guns and the rifles a hail of death did pour,
E/F#/G Cmaj G/F# Em Cmaj Am7 DAnd when that auful night was past,two men lay as cold as stone,
E/F#/G Cmaj GThere was one from near the border,and one from Garryowen.
G Cmaj GNo more he'll hear the seagull cry o're the murmuring Shannon tide,
Cmaj G/F# Em Cmaj Am7 DFor he fell beneath a Northern sky,brave Hanlon by his side,
E/F#/G Cmaj G/F# Em Cmaj Am7 DThey have gone to join that gallant band of Plunkett Pearse and Tone,
E/F#/G Cmaj GA martyr for old Ireland,Sean South from Garryowen
