Heroes From Our Past  Dropkick Murphys

And [Bb5]so the story's told of a [Eb5]hearty group of men
it's a [Eb5]tale of their triumphs and their [F5]woes.
Be it [Bb5]raids and melees ancient or the [Eb5]modern worker's struggle
that [F5]inspires men to [Eb5]stand up for their [Bb5]rights.

And should we fall down by the wayside in this ever-changing world
we can look back to these heroes of our past.
With their staunch determination and ferocious iron will,
no tyranny would quell them in their task.

It's an age-old situation with an ever-present message:
that time and tide waiteth for no man.
So without fear of confrontation of the consequence of outcome,
it's for freedom and for happiness they toiled.

An in looking to the future, we can see a better place where
we can shake the yoke of tyranny for all.
It's been paved by generations who have gone now to their rest.
It's just remembrance of their dignity we ask.

So [Eb5]come on rally round this [Bb5]brave and valiant
[Bb5]cause with tradition, pride, and honor at its [G5]core.
With [Bb5]swords drawn to de[Eb5]fend stood stood these [Bb5]noble-hearted men
Faugh-an-[Eb5]ballagh, clear the [F5]way, me [Bb5]boys!!  [Eb5]     [F5]    [Bb5]

Under perilous conditions with small hope of success
they left behind the lives that they once led
and by virtue of their fortitude and single-minded strength
they cleared the way for the people of today

so when we think back to our ancestors respectfully we hark
and thank the men whose struggle broke the chain
it's a long road up ahead of us let's forge on while we're strong
and leave our mark of honor once again

So come on rally round this brave and valiant
cause with tradition, pride, and honor at its core.
With swords drawn to defend stood stood these noble-hearted men
Faugh-an-ballagh, clear the way, me boys!!

|Bb5 |Eb5 |Eb5 |F5 |
|Bb5 |Eb5 |F5 Eb5 |Bb5 |

So the story has been told and it comes now to an end.
It's setting any era, any land.
When abusive tyrants force the hands of matters great or small,
it inpires men to stand up for their rights.

So come on rally round this brave and valiant
cause with tradition, pride, and honor at its core.
With swords drawn to defend stood stood these noble-hearted men
Faugh-an-ballagh, clear the way, me boys!!
