Ashtown Road Irish Rebel Song lyrics and chords-The author is unknown

[G7] Twas a [C] cold [F] December [C] day

A [Em] lorry [Dm] ploughed its [G7]way

'Midst [C] bullets splash and [F] play

On [G7] Ashtown [C] Road…[F][C]


In that car a living tool

Of England's hated rule

There was begun a duel

On Ashtown Road.


Young Savage, unafraid,

With gun and hand grenade

Attacked them undismayed,

On Ashtown Road.


But a bullet laid him low

From a rifle of the foe,

That' s another debt we owe

For Ashtown Road.


But another day shall dawn

Like that cold December morn

When a martyr's name was born

On Ashtown Road.


We laid him in a grave

Where the willows sadly wave,

Oh! son of Erin brave, Farewell to thee.

This ballad relates the story of Martin Savage, an Officer

of the Dublin Brigade of the IRA who was killed in an ambush

at Ashtown., Co. Dublin on December 19th 1919.
