One of my favourite rebel songs! the chord progression is the same timing for each verse
chorus, so just learn the chorus and you're ready to play it all!
[G] Go on home British soldiers, go on home.
Have you [C] got no fuckin' [G] homes of your [D] own ?
For [C] eight hundred years we've [G] fought you without [Em] fear
And we will [G] fight you for [D] eight hundred [G] more.
If you stay British soldiers if you stay
you'll never ever [G]beat [D]the IRA
the fourteen men in Derry are the last that you will bury
so take a tip and leave us while you may
No! we're not British we're not Saxon we're not English
we're Irish! and proud we are to be
so fuck your union jack we want our country back
we want to see old Ireland free once more.
Well we're fighting British soldiers for the cause
we'll never bow to soldiers because
throughout our history we were born to be free
so get out British soldiers leave us be.
Up the 'ra!
