We'll Fight For Uncle Sam Lyrics and guitar chords. 4/4 (U.S. Unionist Civil War Song

It's pretty much about Irish Troops in the American Civil War and how they are fighting for the North. It also has a little something about Britain. Set to the tune of "Whiskey in the Jar". Recording by David Kincaid in B major with a capo on the 4th fret.

Intro: G-G-Em-Em   C-C-G-G   D-D-G-G   C-C-(G-D)-G   G-G
Well I (G)am a modern hairo: my (Em)name is Paddy Kearney;
Not (C)long ago, I landed from the (G)bogs of sweet Killarney;
I (G)used to cry out: SOAP FAT! Be(Em)kase that was my trade, sir,
Till I (C)'listed for a Soger-boy wid (G)Corcoran's brigade, sir.
Chorus
For to (D)fight for Uncle Sam;
He'll (G)lade us on to glory, O!
He'll (C)lade us on to glory, O!
To (G)save the (D)Stripes and (G)Stars. –G-G

Ora, (G)once in regimentals, my (Em)mind it did bewildher.
I (C)bid good-bye to Biddy dear, and (G)all the darling childher;
Whoo! says (G)I, the Irish Volunteers the (Em)divil a one afraid is,
Be(C)kase we've got the soger bould, Mc(G)Clellan, for to lade us.

Chorus: For to (D)fight for Uncle Sam,...

We (G)soon got into battle: we (Em)made a charge of bay'nets:
The (C)Rebel blaggards soon gave way: they (G)fell as thick as paynuts.
Och (G)hone! the slaughter that we made, be(Em)dad, it was delighting!
For, the (C)Irish lads in action are the (G)divil's boys for fighting.

Chorus: They'll (D)fight for Uncle Sam,...
Instrumental brigde
Chorus: For to (D)fight for Uncle Sam,...

Och, (G)sure, we never will give in, in (Em)any sort of manner,
Un(C)til the South comes back agin, be(D)neath the Starry-Banner;
And (G)if John Bull should interfere, he'd (Em)suffer for it truly;
For (C)soon the Irish Volunteers would (G)give him Ballyhooly.

Chorus: Oh! they'll fight for Uncle Sam,...

And! (G)now, before I ind my song, this (Em)free advice I'll tender:
We (C)soon will use the Rebels up and (G)make them all surrender,
And, (G)once again, the Stars and Stripes will (Em)to the breeze be swellin',
If (C)Uncle Abe will give us back our (G)darling boy McClellan.

Chorus: Oh! we'll (D)follow Little Mac,...
He'll (G)lade us on to glory, O!
He'll (C)lade us on to glory, O!
To (G)save the (D)Stripes and (G)Stars. –G-G
