About The Great Hunger of 1847-1855

In these (Am)sad and lonely days for (G)Ireland

Our people shipped across the ocean (Am)wide

They left their footsteps by the (G)harbour (D)walls

And their (C)dreams are in the (D)hills

And the (Em)cabins that were (Bm)home

In the (Em)fields and in the (Bm)towns of Ire(Am)land.

 

Chorus:

(Am)In our hearts we always will remember

All the (G)tragedy, the hunger, the death and (Am)pain.

In our hearts we always will remember

All the (Em)millions that were (Bm)lost

All the (Em)lifes that it (Bm)cost

In those (Em)ships, those coffin (Bm)ships, those ships of (Am)tears.

 

In overcrowded ships not fit for people

The angel of death did cast it’s hungry eye

For many will die upon the ocean deep

And the childrens’ hungry pleas

From the ??? and disease

In those ships, those coffin ships, those ships of tears.

 

Chorus

 

Bridge in Am

 

Now their ghosts will dance upon the ocean,

Their spirits are wandering on a lonely wave.

The moon and stars will cast a laughing eye,

build a bridge across the sea.

Place a cross, in memory

For each life that was lost in that holocaust.
