GG chord                        CC chord          GG chord 
His eyes they closed and his last breath spoke 
                      EmEm chord 
He had seen all to be seen 
GG chord                        CC chord    GG chord 
a life once full, now an empty vase 
                         DD chord     GG chord 
With the blossoms on his early grave 
     CC chord                 GG chord 
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy 
       EmEm chord              DD chord 
And by mornin' we'll be free 
         GG chord                    CC chord      GG chord 
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear 
                             DD chord       GG chord 
And raise what's left of the flag for me.

Then the rosary beads count them one, two, three 
                           EmEm chord 
Fell apart as they hit the floor. 
       GG chord                     CC chord  GG chord 
In our garb of black we must pay respect 
                   DD chord      GG chord 
To the color we're born to mourn. 
     CC chord           GG chord 
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys 
       EmEm chord              DD chord 
And by mornin' we'll be free 
         GG chord                    CC chord      GG chord 
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear 
                             DD chord       GG chord 
And raise what's left of the flag for me.

GG chord                               CC chord        GG chord 
In his place there grew an angry festered wound 
                       EmEm chord 
Filled with hatred and remorse 
          GG chord                        CC chord        GG chord 
Where I'd pick and scratch till the blood it matched 
                         DD chord       GG chord 
The silent rage now that fills my lungs 
GG chord                                 CC chord        GG chord 
For there are many ways to kill a man they say 
                        EmEm chord 
With bayonet, axe, or sword 
   GG chord                         CC chord         GG chord 
But son a bullet fired from a shapeless guise 
                          DD chord       GG chord 
Leaves but the shell of a Thompson gun. 
 
 
     CC chord           GG chord 
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys 
       EmEm chord              DD chord 
And by mornin' we'll be free 
         GG chord                    CC chord      GG chord 
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear 
                             DD chord       GG chord 
And raise what's left of the flag for me.

Oh my god what have they done 
     GG chord                       CC chord      GG chord 
With madman's rage well they dug our graves

But the dead rise again you fools
