The Rising Of The Moon Irish song lyrics and guitar chords. Recorded by The Dubliners, The Wolfe Tones, Danny Doyle, Shane MacGowan among others.

Oh,[C] then tell me Sean O'Farrell,
    tell me[G] why you hurry so.
    Hush me[F] Buchall hush and[C] listen,
    and his[G] cheeks were all a-[C]glow.
    I bear orders from the captain,
    Get you[G] ready quick and soon,
    For the[F] pikes must be to[C]gether
    By the[G] Rising of the Moon.

    Chorus:
         By the[C] Rising of the Moon,
         By the[G] Rising of the Moon,
         For the[F] pikes must be to[C]gether
         By the[G] Rising of the[C] Moon.

    Oh, then tell me Sean O'Farrell
    Where the gathering is to be.
    In the old spot by the river,
    Right well known to you and me.
    One more word for signal token,
    Whistle up the marching tune.
    With your pike upon your shoulder
    By the Rising of the Moon.

    Chorus:
         By the Rising of the Moon,
         By the Rising of the Moon,
         With your pike upon your shoulder
         By the Rising of the Moon.

    Out of many a mud wall cabin
    Eyes were watching thru' the night.
    Many a manly heart was throbbing
    For the coming morning light.
    Murmers ran along the valley,
    Like the banshee's lonely croon,
    And a thousand pikes were flashing
    By the Rising of the Moon.

    Chorus:
         By the Rising of the Moon,
         By the Rising of the Moon,
         And a thousand pikes were flashing
         By the Rising of the Moon.

    There beside the singing river
    That dark mass of men were seen,
    Far above their shining weapons hung
    Their own beloved green.
    Death to every foe and traitor,
    Forward strike the marching tune,
    And hurrah me boys for freedom,
    Tis the Rising of the Moon.

    Chorus:
         Tis the Rising of the Moon,
         Tis the Rising of the Moon,
         And hurrah me boys for freedom,
         Tis the Rising of the Moon.

Above is The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem singing. Below is my own version for how to play the song on guitar.

This is the version I use in the youtube
video. Capo on the 5th fret and you play
these chords, you'll be in the key of C.
 
Oh,[G] then tell me Sean O'Farrell,
    tell me[D] why you hurry so.
    Hush me[C] Buchall hush and[G] listen,
    and his[D] cheeks were all a-[G]glow.
    I bear orders from the captain,
    Get you[D] ready quick and soon,
    For the[C] pikes must be to[G]gether
    By the[D] Rising of the [G]Moon.
    Chorus:
         By the[G] Rising of the Moon,
         By the[D] Rising of the Moon,
         For the[C] pikes must be to[G]gether
         By the[D] Rising of the[G] Moon.
    Oh, [G]then tell me Sean O'Farrell
    Where the [D]gathering is to be.
    In the [C]old spot by the[G] river,
    Right well [D]known to you and me.
    One more[G] word for signal token,
    Whistle [D]up the marching tune.
    With your[C] pike upon your [G]shoulder
    By the [D]Rising of the [G]Moon.
 
    Out [G]of many a mud wall cabin
    Eyes were [D]watching thru' the night.
    Many a [C]manly heart was [G]throbbing
    For the [D]coming morning [G]light.
    Murmers ran along the valley,
    Like the [D[banshee's lonely croon,
    And a [C]thousand pikes were flashing
    By the [D]Rising of the [G]Moon.
  
 [G]There beside the singing river
    That dark [D]mass of men were seen,
    Far [C]above their shining [G]weapons hung
    Their [D]own beloved [G]green.
    Death to every foe and traitor,
    Forward strike [D]the marching tune,
    And [C]hurrah me boys for freedom,
    Tis the [D]Rising of the [G]Moon.
 
  And[G] they fought for dear old Ireland
 And proud [D]bitter was their faith
 O'h what [C]glorious pride and [G]sorrow
 Fills the[D] name of 8[G]9
 And by way of signal token
 Whistle [D]out a marching tune
 And [C]harrah me boys for [G]freedom
