Tom Williams Irish song lyrics and chords. Tom Williams was an I.R.A. volunteer and was sentenced to death by hanging in 1942, He was 18 years old. Capo on the second fret= the key of A major. Recorded by The Dublin City Ramblers and by Eire Og, now Gary Og. also by The Irish Brigade. The youtube video is to teach you how to play the song on guitar. I use a capo on the first and don't use any plec.
 
 
 
Time[G] goes by as years roll[D] onwards,
[C]Still in [D]memory fresh I [G]keep,
Of a night in Brlfast[D] prison,
Una[C]shamed I [D]saw men[G] weep.
[2]
As the time was fast approaching,
A lad lay sentenced for to die,
On the second of september,
He goes to meet his God on high.
[3]
Now he's marching to the scaffold,
Head erect he shows no fear,
And while standing on that scaffold,
Ireland's cross he holds so dear.
[4]
Now the cruel blow has fallen,
For Ireland he has given all,
Who in the flower of manhood,
Proudly answered to the call.
[5]
Brave Tom Williams we salute you,
And we never shall forget,
Thoes who planned your brutal murder,
We vow we'll make them all regret.
[6]
So[G] I say to Irish[D] solders,
[C]If from[D] Tom's path you chance to[G] stray,
Just keep memory of that[Em] morn,
When Ireland's[C] cross was proudly[D] borne,
By a lad who lies within this[C] prison [G]grave.
