Only Our Rivers Run Free  Misc. Traditional

          [G]When apples still [D]grow in Novem[G]ber
          When [C]blossoms still [G]bloom from each [D]tree
          When [C]leaves are still green in De[G]cember
          It's [D]then that our [Bm]land will be [Em]free
          I [C]wander her hills and her [G]valleys
          And [C]still through my sorrow I [D]see
          A [C]land that has never know [G]freedom
          And [D]only her [Bm]rivers run [Em]free
I drink to the death of her manhood

Those men who'd rather have died

Than to live in the cold chains of bondage

To bring back thier rights were denied

Oh where are you now that we need you

What burns where the flame used to be

Are ye gone like the snows of last winter

And will only our rivers run free

How sweet is life but we're crying

How mellow the wine but we're dry

How fragrant the rose but it's dying

How gentle the wind but it sighs

What good is in youth when it's aging

What joy is in eyes that can't see

When there's sorrow in sunshine and laughter

And still only our rivers run free
