[Verse 1]
D                             G                        D       A      D
Oh it's down the glen came McAlpine’s men with their shovels slung behind them.
                       G                            D           G
'Twas in the pub they drank the sub and up in the spike you'll find them .
       D                                 G                  D         G
They sweated blood and they washed down mud with pints and quarts of beer.
     D                G                D         A    D
And now we're on the road again with McAlpine's Fusiliers.


[Verse 2]
D                            G                D       A       D
I stripped to the skin with Darkie Flynn down in the Isle of Grain.
D                                G                               D          G
With Horse Face O'Toole, sure I knew the rule, no money if you stopped for rain.
   D                              G                          D         G
McAlpine's God was a well-filled hod, your shoulders cut to bits and seared,
     D                 G                  D         A   D
And woe to he wh’went look for tea with McAlpine's Fusiliers.

D                             G                D      A        D
I remember that day when the Bear O'Shea fell into a concrete stairs.
                                   G                                     D           G
What the Horse Face said when he found him dead well it wasn't what the rich called prayers.
        D                          G                  D      G
“I'm a navvy short” was the one retort that reached unto my ears.
              D                         G                    D        A   D
And when the goin’ gets rough well you must be tough with McAlpine's Fusiliers

I've worked 'til the sweat well it had me bet, with Russians, Czechs and Poles.
                                 G                       D          G
On shuddering jams in the hydro dams or underneath the Thames in a hole.
    D                 G                                D              G
I grafted hard and I got me cards and many a ganger's fist across me ears.
        D                          G                      D        A   D
If you value your life well don’t join by Christ, with McAlpine's Fusiliers.

             D                         G                      D        A   D
And if you value your life well don’t join by Christ, with McAlpine's Fusiliers.
