Gallipoli.
The Fureys.

Intro: D Em A7 G D G C B Em7 A7 G D

D                            Em
I remember the day it stands clear in my mind,
   A7                              G        D
We stood down at Dun Laoighaire to wave you goodbye,
                                         Em
Your ma was quietly weeping, there was a tear in my eye,
        A7          A            D
As they sent you to Gallipoli to die.

                                              Em
You looked so young as you stood there with a glint in your eye,
        A7                      G              D
And you sang rebel songs as the streamers flew high,
                          Em
Your ma turned away and I heard her sigh,
           A7         A            D
For you're sailing to Gallipoli to die.

Chorus:
                     Bm7       Em7
You were all that we had, your mammy and me,
         A6                          G              D
When you marched head erect you were proud as could be,
       C                           B            Em7
And it killed your poor ma, and it slowly killed me,
                               A           G         Em     D
When you were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli.

                                  Em
We only got the one letter and we knew right away,
   D    A7                           G               D
It said deepest regrets your son was bold and he was brave,
                           Em       
You were only 18, yet your mammy and I,
           A7              D
Let you go to Gallipoli to die.

Chorus:
                     Bm7       Em7
You were all that we had, your mammy and me,
         A            A6             G              D
When you marched head erect you were proud as could be,
       C                           B            Em7
And it killed your poor ma, and it slowly killed me,
                               A           G         Em      D
When you were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli.

                                           Em
You fought for the wrong country, you died for the wrong cause,
         A7                                        D
And your ma often said that it was Ireland's great loss,
                                                Em7
All those fine young men who marched to foreign shores to fight the wars,
         A7                         D
When the greatest war of all was at home.

Chorus:
                     Bm7       Em7
You were all that we had, your mammy and me,
         A            A6             G              D
When you marched head erect you were proud as could be,
       C                           B            Em7
And it killed your poor ma, and it slowly killed me,
                               A           G         Em     D
When you were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli.

Chorus:
                     Bm7       Em7
You were all that we had, your mammy and me,
         A            A6             G              D
When you marched head erect you were proud as could be,
       C                           B            Em7
And it killed your poor ma, and it slowly killed me,
                               A           G         Em      D
When you were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli.
