We're Celts Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Written by Maire McNally and recorded by The Irish Brigade. If the tune sounds familar it's because it's been used in several folk songs including Mo Ghoilla Mhear, and The Spanish Lady. Marie also wrote The Warrior From West Belfast
Words Without The Chords
Chorus
Standing proud the Celtic Race
Never feared the foe to face
Scot and Irish we are one we're
Celts we're Celts we will fight on
1
William Wallace sword in hand
fought to free his home and land
Hugh O Neill and Eoghan Roe
On Ulster's hills they fought the foe
England the ancient enemy
Took with force our liberty
tried to destroy our freedom's cause
With Cruel and oppressive foreign laws
Chorus
2
In the highlands every clan
fought the Sassanach to man
Crofters whipped out from their homes
In foreign lands were forced to roam
England saw the great starvation
A way to destroy the Irish nation
Hunger famine and disease
brought the Irish people to their knees
3
Our histories are twisted like the rope
That hung around many a rebel throat
Resistance and  rising through the years
We've lost good men, shed floods of tears
Its time for England a truth to face
They will never defeat the Celtic Race
Scot and Irish we are one
Our people our music our Gealic tongue
 
 
For as long as there shall be
One hundred men with hearts that’s free
Our consent we’ll never give
To British dominion while we live
Glory, honour, truth or right
Are not the reasons Celts do fight
For freedom alone that we’re content
And for this we struggle till our lifes end
WE’RE CELTS 4/4 (Maire McNally)
For Irish Brigade version use capo on 2nd fret
