THE WOLFE TONES
A NATION ONCE AGAIN



Verse 1
 G   
When boyhood's fire was in my blood
  C                G
I read of ancient freeman
     G            
For Greece and Rome who bravely stood
       C       Am       D
Three hundred men and three men
    D 
And then I prayed I yet might see
     C               G
Our fetters rent in twain
     C        Am             D
And Ireland long a province be
                G
A nation once again


Chorus
     G           C
A nation once again
  Am            D
A nation once again
      G             C
And Ireland long a province be
Am    D          G
A nation once again


Verse 2

It whispered too that freeedom's ark
That service high and holy
Would be profaned by feelings dark
And passions vain or lowly
For freedom comes from God's right hand
And needs a Godly train
And righteous men must make our land
A nation once again


Chorus....


Verse 3

So as I grew from boy to man
I bent me to that bidding
My spirit of each selfish plan
And cruel passion ridding
For thus I hoped some day to aid
Oh can such hope be vain
When my dear country should be made
A nation once again


Chorus...
