The Green And The Blue Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. A Scottish song by The Battlefield Band 3/4 timing.  This song is a call to the Scottish regiments of the British army to return home to their native Scotland and leave Ulster. A beautiful tune with some lovley sentiments expressed, the tricky guitar work is by Marc.

Chorus
(D)Don't turn to (F#m)look on the (G)green hills of (D)Antrim
Fer(Bm)managh's be(F#m)hind you, it's (G)time to move (A)on
Look (G)onwards to (D)Glasgow, and (G)all your to(Bm)morrows
The (F#m)future lies (Bm)there, and it's (Em)waiting for (A)you
As the (G)green crosses (F#m)over to (A7)meet with the (D)blue.


And (Bm)what was the (G)sense when the (A)wee ones were (D)cryin'?
The (Bm)cries of the (F#m)hungry, no (G)sense to re(A)main
No (Bm)prayer could re(G)cover a (A)sister or (D)brother
So fare(Bm)well to Fer(F#m)managh, the (G)praying is (A)done.


Chorus
Bridge: D-Bm-G-A

The (Bm)land that you (G)leave has had (A)too many (D)martyrs
And (Bm)too many (F#m)lives that have (G)perished in (A)vain
And (Bm)too many (G)boats slipping (A)out from it's (D)harbours
With (Bm)cargoes that (F#m)never came (G)homewards a(A)gain.


Chorus
Bridge: D-Bm-G-A
Bridge2: Bm-G-A-D   Bm-G-Em-A   G-D-G-Bm   F#m-Bm-Em-A   G-F#m-A7-D


(verse 3 with different melody!)
If the (Bm)wings of the (G)eagle could (A)carry you (D)over
To the (Bm)lands of the (G)prairie, then (F#m)surely you'd (Bm)fly
But an (G)ocean so (D)wide, and a (G)far distant (Bm)country
So (F#m)far from your (Bm)own land is (G)no place to (A)die.


So (D)don't turn to (F#m)look on the (G)green hills of (D)Antrim
Fer(Bm)managh's be(F#m)hind you, it's (G)time to move (A)on
Look (G)onwards to (D)Glasgow, and (G)all your to(Bm)morrows
The (F#m)future lies (Bm)there, and it's (Em)waiting for (A)you
As the (G)green crosses (F#m)over -G-F#m
As the (G)green crosses (F#m)over to (A7)meet with the (D)blue
