Me Old Howth Gun Lyrics And Chords. Recorded by Danny Doyle with guitar chords by Marc Fahrbach. A Howth gun was a refile used by the Irish volunteers during the 1916 rising in Dublin. It was an awkward weapon and overheated after firing several rounds.

For Danny Doyle’s version use capo on 1st fret

O me (A)old Howth (D)gun. - D

 

2. I was (D)glad when you were (G)near

O me (A)old Howth (D)gun.

For the foeman did I (Bm)fear

O me (A)old Howth gun.

When your (G)bark and bitter (D)bite

Put the (G)Saxon course to (Bm)flight - Bm

And he (D)didn't stop to (G)fight

O me (A)old Howth (D)gun. - D

 

3. O how (D)glorious was your (G)feel

O me (A)old Howth (D)gun.

When you made the Saxon (Bm)reel

O me (A)old Howth gun.

When the (G)Lancers trimmin’ (D)neat

Came chargin (G)down O'Connell (Bm)Street - Bm

And they (D)beat a grim re(G)treat

O me (A)old Howth (D)gun. - D

 

4. O the (D)parting it was (G)sore

O me (A)old Howth (D)gun.

Shall I ne'er see you no (Bm)more

O me (A)old Howth gun.

There is (G)glorious hopes that (D)we

Could have (G)set old Ireland (Bm)free - Bm

But now your (D)parted far from (G)me

O me (A)old Howth (D)gun. - D

 

5. O the (D)day will surely (G)come

O me (A)old Howth (D)gun.

When I'll join the fightin' (Bm)men

O me (A)old Howth gun.

In some (G)brave determined (D)band          (Spoken in Danny Doyle’s version)

I shall (G)surely take my (Bm)stand   - Bm    (Spoken in Danny Doyle’s version)

For the (D)freedom of our (G)land
