CLARE’S DRAGOONS Lyrics And Guitar Chords 4/4

As played by Na Casaidigh (use capo on 4th fret) written by Thomas Davis, the same man who wrote A Nation Once Again. The guitar chords are by Marc Fahrbach. Irish rebel song.

When (D)on Ramillie's (Bm)bloody (D)field,

The baffled French were (G)forced to (Em)yield,

The (D)victor (A)Saxon (Bm)backward (D)reeled

Before the (G)charge of (A)Clare's Dra(D)goons.

The Flags we (A)conquered (Em)in that (D)fray,

Look lone in (A)Ypres' (Em)choir, they (G)say,

We'll (D)win them (A)compan(Em)y to(D)day,

Or bravely (G)die like (A)Clare’s Dra(D)goons.

 

Chorus:

(D)Viva (A)la for (Bm)Ireland's (D)wrong!

Viva (Bm)la, for (G)Ireland's (Em)right!

(D)Viva (A)la in (Bm)battle (D)throng,

For a Spanish (G)steed, and (A)sabre (D)bright!

 

The (D)brave old Lord died (Bm)near the (D)fight,

But, for each drop he (G)lost that (Em)night,

A (D)Saxon (A)cava(Bm)lier shall (D)bite

The dust be(G)fore Lord (A)Clare's Dra(D)goons,

For never, (A)when our (Em)spores were (D)set

And never, (A)when our (Em)sabres (G)met,

Could (D)we the (A)Saxon (Em)soldiers (D)get

To stand the (G)shock of (A)Clare's Dra(D)goons.

 

(D)Viva (A)la, the (Bm)New Bri(D)gade!

Viva (Bm)la, the (G)Old One, (Em)too!

(D)Viva (A)la, the (Bm)rose shall (D)fade,

And the shamrock (G)shine for(A)ever (D)new!

 

An(D)other Clare is (Bm)here to (D)lead,

The worthy son of (G)such a (Em)breed;

The (D)French ex(A)pect some (Bm)famous (D)deed,

When Clare leads (G)on his (A)bold Dra(D)goons.

Our Colonel (A)comes from (Em)Brians (D)race,

His wounds are (A)in his (Em)breast and (G)face,

The (D)bearna (A)baoghail is (Em)still his (D)place,

The foremost (G)of his (A)bold Dra(D)goons.

 

Repeat 2nd chorus twice
