Michael Collins By Sean Dunphy. This song was sent to me by Hans van de Put from The Netherlands with the guitar chords. Thanks a lot Hans, great work.
This is one of four song about Michael Collins now on the site, the other's are by Johnny McEvoy, The Wolfe Tones, and Donagh McDonagh.

In [C]Beal Na Bla in the year twenty two
There died the best patriot this [Dm]country ever knew 
No [C]crime he committed, no wrong had he done
He was true till he's murdered by a [G7]cruel assassins’ [C]gun [G7…C]
 
O, who is the man with the blood on his hands
Such a cold blooded ambush there never was planned
Shame on the traitor that gave the command 
But they murdered the brave Michael Collins
 
When the great notice of freedom was sounded through the land 
He shouldered his rifle for Ireland took his stand
He was hunted through Dublin but he stayed while others fled 
Ten thousand sovereigns was the price upon his head 
 
O, who is the man with the blood on his hands
Such a cold blooded ambush there never was planned
Shame on the traitor that gave the command 
But they murdered the brave Michael Collins


With courage undaunted did he struggle and defeat 
To be the clan united to set our country free
Trusted by the people as a man of high renown
Beloved by his comrades and hated by the crown 
 
O, who is the man with the blood on his hands
Such a cold blooded ambush there never was planned
Shame on the traitor that gave the command 
But they murdered the brave Michael Collins  [G#7…C#]
 
The [C#]convoy set out from the town of Skibbereen
By the side of a road stayed his [D#m]enemy unseen 
They [C#]shot him without warning on that tragic summers day 
But serving his country, what a [G#7]price that was to [C#]pay
 
O, who is the man with the blood on his hands
Such a cold blooded ambush there never was planned
Shame on the traitor that gave the command 
But they murdered the brave Michael Collins
