all the bitterness forgiven

down through all the generations

this green and misty island

it's yours and it's my land
        G              Em               D   Dm
we're Irish and we're proud to be Irish too
    G
so lets run forward straight and steadfast
             C
from county cork to belfast
      G                D            G    .C  G
and show the world what Irishmen can do

out of all this ruin and rubble
         G                  Em
out of all this so called trouble
        C                               D   .C   Em  D
lets create a peace our land has never known
          G
then at last we'd be united
          C
and every wrong shall have been righted

when the last british soldier has gone home
           D             Dm            C Em G
when the last british soldier has gone home.
