Lord Nelson Chords And Lyrics By Tommy Makem
This song is about the famous monument that stood in Dublin's O'Connell Street of Lord Nelson. The monument was blown up by the I.R.A in 1966 just before the 50th anniversary of the 1916 rising. Recorded by The Clancy Brothers with Tommy Makem and also by The Makem And Spain Brothers. Another song which was written about the same Nelson is Nelson's Farewell lyrics + chords which was a big hit for The Dubliners. The third song about Nelson was written and recorded by The Go Luck Four entitled Up Went Nelson, I hope to include that song soon. The tune for Lord Nelson is the same as The Sash Me Father Wore.
 

LORD NELSON BY TOMMY MAKEM
[C]Lord Nelson stood in pompous state upon [Am7]his pillar [G]high
And down along O'Connell [G7]Street, he[C] cast a [Am]wicked [C]eye
He thought how this barbaric race had [Am]fought the British [G]crown
Yet they were content to [G7]let him stay right [C]here in [G]Dublin [C]town
 
Chorus:
[G]So remember brave Lord Nelson [C]boys, he had [G]never known de[C]feat
And for his re[Am]ward, they [F]stuck him up in the [C]middle of O'[G]Connell [C]Street
 
 
Well for many years, Lord Nelson stood and no one seemed to care
He'd squint at Dan O'Connell, who was standing right down there
He thought "The Irish like me or they wouldn't let me stay
That is except those blighters that they call the I.R.A."
 
 
Chorus
And then in 1966, on March the seventh day
A bloody great explosion made Lord Nelson rock and sway
He crashed and Dan O'Connell cried in woeful misery
"There are twice as many pigeons now will come and sit on me"
So remember brave lord Nelson boys, he had never known defeat
And for his reward, they blew him up in the middle of O'Connell Street
