The High Kings – Kelly The Boy From Killane chords

N.C.What's the news, what's the news, oh me bold Shelmalier
N.C.With your long barrel guns from the sea?
N.C.Say, what wind from the south brings a messenger here
N.C.With this hymn of the dawn for the free?
N.C.Goodly news, goodly news do I bring youth of Forth
N.C.Goodly news shall I hear Bargy man
N.C.For the boys march at morn from the south to the north
N.C. Bb F CLed by Kelly, the boy from Killane
N.C.Tell me who is the giant with the gold curling hair
N.C.He who rides at the head of your band
N.C.Seven feet is his height with some inches to spare
N.C.And he looks like a king in command
F COh, me boys, that's the pride of the bold Shelmalier
F Dm7 G'Mongst our greatest of heroes, a man
C F C AmFling your beavers aloft and give three ringing cheers
C G BbFor John Kelly, the boy from Killane
[Instrumental] Bb F C Bb F G [Verse]
C F C AmEnniscorthy's in flames and old Wexford is won
C G C FAnd the barrow tomorrow we will cross
C F C AmOn the hill o'er the town we have planted a gun
C G CThat will batter the gateways at Ross
F CAll the Forth men and Bargy men march o'er the heath
F Dm7 GWith brave Harvey to lead on the van
C F C AmBut the foremost of all in that grim gap of death
C G BbWill be Kelly, the boy from Killane
[Instrumental] Bb C Bb C Bb C Bb Dm [Verse]
N.C.But the gold sun of freedom grew darkened at Ross
N.C.And it set by the Slaney's red wave
N.C.And poor Wexford stripped naked hung high on a cross
N.C.With her heart pierced by traitors and knaves
F CGlory-o, Glory-o to the brave men who died
F Dm7 GFor the cause of long down-trodden man
C F C G/B AmGlory-o to Mount Leinster's own darling and pride
C G BbDauntless Kelly, the boy from Killane
[Outro] Bb F C Bb F C Bb F C Bb F C
