Fourteen Men lyrics and guitar chords, Derek Warfield - Wolfe Tones. Derek Warfield penned this song following Dublin's victory over Offaly in the 1979 Leinster football final. Despite Dublin player Jimmy Keaveny getting his marching orders, 'the Dubs' famously went on to claim victory with only Fourteen Men, the guitar chords are by Fintan Warfield.


(Am) And there was fourteen on fourteen was off,
(G) Jimmy on the sideline havin a gawk,
(Am) Heffo and the boys were working out a plan,
How to beat the Offaly lads (G) without the extra (Am) man.

 
On hill 16 they never gave up hope,
Without Jimmy Keavney the man they call the pope,
The last six minutes the hill was going mad,
While Offaly in the Hogan, they were looking very sad.


In the second half, Dublin should be proud,
They put it in the net twice to get the goal allowed,
The dubs may come, and dubs may go,
while history was made six lenister's in a row.


And then came the goal, it came from centre-field,
Briany fists a tall ball down to Pat O’Neill,
Anton O’Toole’s pass I never will forget,
Bernard Brogan kicked a bomber, it landed in the net.

Were with them when we win, were with them when we lose,
Roscommon and Kerry watch out for superblues,
We won’t be easy beatin and never will we yield,
As long as there's a man to kick the ball upon the field.

The youtube video by The Wolfe Tones was recorded on Live At Three on R.T.E. Television in the same year. Intriduced by Bibi Baskin. Derek Warfield does the singing and mandolin playing, Brian his brother is on 5 string banjo, Tommy Byrne plays the guitar and Noel Nagle is on the low whistle.
