The Ballad Of Dan Breen Song Lyrics. The Treshing Mill Boys. It's unusualy for a Country Band to be singing the ballads, this one is in ''Country Beat''. Dan Breen was born in Donohill in County Tipperary in 1884. He was an I.R.A. volunteer in the Tipperary area during War Of Independence and again in the Civil War. During the fight for independence the British government put a price of 10,000 pounds on his head.

BALLAD OF DAN BREEN CHORDS 3/4 (The Treshing Mill Boys)
The Treshing Mill Boys played this song in C# major (capo on the 1st fret)

Intro: C-C-G-G   G-G7-C-C

Of [C]all the men who [G]took up arms for the freedom [G7]of their [C]land
There's one in[F]deed who sowed the [G]seed for victory's [G7]final [C]stand
A son of [F]Tipperary’s [G]soil he's held in [G7]high es[C]teem
He was born and reared in [G]Solonead and his name it [G7]is Dan [C]Breen.


A[C]long with brave Sean [G]Tracy, they formed a [G7]steadfast [C]band
They were pre[F]pared to do or [G]die to free their [G7]native [C]land
By mountain [F]side and heather [G]glen, through many a [G7]valley [C]free,
The tans they fled, they [G]were in dread with meeting [G7]with Dan [C]Breen


His [C]deeds of courage [G]and renown will live for[G7]ever [C]more
Near Sole[F]nead and Aher[G]low and 'round by [G7]Galtee[C]more
He was fearless [F]in the face of [G]death and the story [G7]still lives [C]on,
We saved Sean Hogan [G]from the tans at the Station [G7]of Knock[C]long.

 

When [C]all this land once [G]more is free and it surly [G7]will some [C]day
And we'll re[F]member men who [G]fought in many a [G7]bloody [C]fray
Those men whose [F]smoldering bones now [G]lie beneath our [G7]sod of [C]Green
In letters bold in[G]scribed in gold will write the [G7]name Dan [C]Breen.
In letters bold in[G]scribed in gold will write the [G7]name Dan [C]Breen.

Song Words Without The Chords
Of all the men who took up arms for the freedom of their land
There's one indeed who sowed the seed for victory's final stand
A son of Tipperary--he's held in high esteem
He was born and reared in Solonead and his name it is Dan Breen.

Along with Sean Tracy, they formed a steadfast band
They were prepared to do or die to free their native land
By mountain side and heather glen, through many a valley free,
The tans they fled, they were in dread with meeting with Dan Breen

His deeds of courage and renown will live forever more
Near Solenead and Aherlow and 'round by Galtee More
He was fearless in the face of death and the story still lives on,
We saved Sean Hogan from the tans at the Station Of Knocklong.

When all this land once more is free and it surly will some day
And we'll remember men who fought in many a bloody fray
Those men whose smoldering bones do lie beneeth our sod of Green
In letters bold inscribed in gold will write the name Dan Breen.
In letters bold inscribed in gold, will write the name Dan Breen.
