Ireland Garth Brooks
Intro: A, A, A, A
[A]They say Mother Earth is [A]breathing [A]
[A]With each wave that finds the [A]shore [A]
[A]Her soul rises in the [A]evening [A]
[A]For to open twilight's [A]doors [A]
[A]Her eyes [F#m]are the stars in [A]heaven [A]
[A]Watching o'er us all the [D]while [D]
[D]And her heart it is in [A]Ireland [E]
Deep within the Emerald Isle
We were forty against hundreds,
In someone else's bloody war.
We know not why we're fighting,
Or what we're dying for.
They will storm us in the morning,
As the sunlight turns the sky.
Death is waiting for it's dance now,
Fate has sentenced us to die.
[F#m]Ireland, [D]I am coming [A]home!
I can [D]see your rolling [A]fields of green
And [F#m]fences made of [E]stone.
I am [F#m]reaching [A]out, won't you [D]take my [A]hand
I'm coming [F#m]home, [D]I-[E]re-[A]land!
Oh the captain he lay bleeding
And I can hear him calling me
These men are yours now for the leading
Show them to their destiny
And as I looked up all around me
I see the ragged tired and torn
I tell them to make ready
Cause we're not waiting for the morn.
Now the fog is deep and heavy
As we forge the dark and fear
We can hear their horses breathing
As in silence we draw near
And there are no words to be spoken
Just a look to say goodbye
I draw a breath and night is broken
As I scream our battle cry
[A]Yes I am [F#m]home, [D]I-[E]re-[A]land!
The only playing notes I can give are that the Intro is strummed
without anything more than the strum on the first of every measure.
Listen to the song, you'll be able to pick it up easily!
On the first verse, A* is where the song breaks into up-tempo.
