A Nation Once Again Lyrics And Guitar Chords-Irish Rebel Song. Written By Thomas Davis. This song as sung by ''The Wolfe Tones'' was voted no.1 by the B.B.C. world service in an open vote by it's listeners, strange when you consider the song gets no radio air play. Also recorded by The Dubliners with Luke Kelly on vocals
 
 

When[D] boyhoods fire was in my blood I[G] read of [A]ancient[D] free men
For[D] Greece and Rome who bravly stood three [G]hundred[Em] men and[A] three men
And[A] then I prayed I yet might see our[G] fetters [D]rent in twain
And[G] Ireland long a provience[A] be a[D] nation[A] once[D] again
[Chorus]
A[D] nation once a[G]gain , a [Em]nation once a[A]gain
And[D] Ireland long a[G] provence[A] be a[D] nation [A]once a[D]gain
 
And from that time through wildest woe that hope has shone a far light
Nor could love's brightest summer glow outshine that solemn starlight
It seemed to watch above my head in forum fields and fame
It's angle voice sang 'round my head a nation once again
 
It whispered to that freedoms ark and service high and holy
Would be frefound my feelings dark and passions vain or lowly
For freedom comes from Gods right hand and needs a godly train
And righteous men must make our land a nation once again
 
So as I grew from boy to man I bent me to that bidding
My spirit of each selfish plan and cruel passion ridding
For thus I hope some day to aid oh can such hope be vain
When my dear country should be made a nation once again 

A Nation Once Again Lyrics
 
When boyhoods fire was in my blood I read of ancient free men
For Greece and Rome who bravly stood three hundred men and three men
An then I prayed I yet might see our fetters rent in twain
And[G] Ireland long a provience be a nation once again
[Chorus]
A nation once again , a nation once again
And Ireland long a provence be a nation once again
 
And from that time through wildest woe that hope has shone a far light
Nor could love's brightest summer glow outshine that solemn starlight
It seemed to watch above my head in forum fields and fame
It's angle voice sang 'round my head a nation once again
 
It whispered to that freedoms ark and service high and holy
Would be frefound my feelings dark and passions vain or lowly
For freedom comes from Gods right hand and needs a godly train
And righteous men must make our land a nation once again
 
So as I grew from boy to man I bent me to that bidding
My spirit of each selfish plan and cruel passion ridding
For thus I hope some day to aid oh can such hope be vain
When my dear country should be made a nation once again
