We Are The Irish Chords

Intro: C-Am-G-F   C-G-C-C (2x)

 

Like (C)chaff in the (Em)wind we were (F)cast from our (C)shores

As emigrants, as (G)exiles, as (C)convicts, as slaves

For hundreds of (Em)years Ireland (F)never saw (C)peace

From the (G)land that they loved they were forced o’er the seas

As (C)soldiers of (Em)fortune in the (F)Irish bri(C)gades

Our regiments con(G)demned to the (C)wars and the graves

The soldiers, the (F)sailors, the (C)Wild Geese, the (Em)weavers,

the (C)rebels, the (G)heroes, the (C)helpless, the brave.

 

Chorus

(C)We are the (Em)Irish all (F)over the (C)world

(F)My heart is (C)with you, may the (G)road rise to meet you

With (C)god’s (Am)hand to (C)keep you from (F)harm

I will be (C)with you a(Em)lways, all the (Am)days

Till the (Em)sun and the (Am)moon and the (Em)stars in the (Am)sky cease to (C)shine -G-C

 

(Dm)Aye-yaye-yaye, (C)aye-yaye-yaye,

(Dm)aye-yaye-yaye, (C)aye-yayeya-(G)yaye-(C)yaye

 

Bridge: C-Am-G-F   C-G-C-C (2x)

 

Oh, (C)they left their (Em)homes so (F)eerie and (C)still

Generations were (G)forced from the (C)land that they loved

Their commerce all (Em)stifled, their (F)industries run (C)down

By (G)taxes and landlords and goverments that ruled,

From (C)wars and di(Em)sease, as re(F)ligious refu(C)gees,

a-fleeing ??? the (G)cruel penal (C)laws and decrease,

the horrors of (F)hunger has (C)torn us a(Em)sunder,

the (C)young and the (G)old are all (C)scattered and gone.

 

Chorus

 

(Dm)Aye-yaye-yaye, (C)aye-yaye-yaye,

(Dm)aye-yaye-yaye, (C)aye-yayeya-(G)yaye-(C)yaye

 We Are The Irish Lyrics

Like chaff in the wind we were cast from our shores

As emigrants, as exiles, as convicts, as slaves

For hundreds of years Ireland never saw peace

From the land that they loved they were forced o’er the seas

As soldiers of fortune in the Irish brigades

Our regiments condemned to the wars and the graves

The soldiers, the sailors, the Wild Geese, the weavers,

the rebels, the heroes, the helpless, the brave.

 

Chorus

We are the Irish all over the world

My heart is with you, may the road rise to meet you

With god’s (Am)hand to (C)keep you from harm

I will be with you always, all the days

Till the (Em)sun and the moon and the stars in the sky cease to shine

 

Aye-yaye-yaye, aye-yaye-yaye,

aye-yaye-yaye, aye-yayeya-yaye-yaye

 

 

Oh, they left their homes so eerie and still

Generations were forced from the land that they loved

Their commerce all stifled, their industries run down

By taxes and landlords and goverments that ruled,

From wars and disease, as religious refugees,

a-fleeing  the cruel penal laws and decrease,

the horrors of hunger has torn us asunder,

the young and the old are all scattered and gone.

 

Chorus

 

Aye-yaye-yaye, aye-yaye-yaye,

aye-yaye-yaye, aye-yayeya-yaye-yaye
