Gallipoli Lyrics and guitar chords The Fureys M.Swan / D.Doyle An anti war song from the first world war, Made famous by The Fureys , Over 3,500 Irishmen were killed at Gallipoli.

I[D] remember the day it stands[Em] clear in my mind
We stood[A] down by Dunlaoire to[G] wave you good[D]bye
Your[D] ma was quietly weeping there was a[Em] tear in her eye
As we[A] sent you to[A7] Gallipoli to[D] die
 
You looked so young as you stood there a glint in your eye
And you sang rebel songs as the streamers flew high
Your ma turned away and I heard a sigh
God your sailing to Gallipoli to die
[Chorus]
You[D] were all that we had your[Em] mammy and me
When you[A] marched head a-rect you were[G] proud as could[D] be
And it[D] killed your poor[C] ma and it's slowly killing[Em] me
You were blown to kingdom[A] come on the[G] shores of Gallipo[D]li
 
We only got the one letter and we knew right away
It said deepest regrets your son was bold and he was brave
You were only nineteen yet your mammy and I
Let you go to Gallipoli to die.
 
You fought for the wrong country,you fought for the wrong cause
And your ma often said it was Ireland's great loss
All those fine young men who marchet to forign shores to fight the wars
When the greatest war of all was at home. 

The Fureys and Davie Arhtur is from the first world war and it's all about a father's thoughts about his son heading off to fight in Gallipoli when the father thinks his son should be staying at home to fight for Ireland in the war of independence. It's not that difficult to play, watch for the C Chord in the chorus.
