To Youth (My Sweet Roisin Dubh)  Flogging Molly

-To Youth(My Sweet Roisin Dubh)
Verse 1:
Tell me [C]why must a man be of [G]service
To his [C]lord and the god seldom [G]high
From the [C]grave spring the name of our [G]fathers
But there's no [C]glint in a [Am]dead man's [D]eye
Tell me [C]why are our fields filled with [G]hunger
And f[C]ruitless the crop bitter [G]soil
So I [C]say my farewell to a [G]nation
As the [C]leaf waves [Am]goodbye to it's [D]son
Chorus
So it's to [C]youth I sing you this [G]story
And it's of [C]youth I sing it [G]now
Like the [C]train that derails without [G]warning
I must [Am]leave what I left far be[D]hind
So good[C]bye, sweet Roisi[D]n Dubh
I say [G]goo[C]dby[G]e[C] [G] [C] [G]
Verse 2:
Tell me [C]why must our peace be this [G]puzzle
That [C]fractures the land, splinters [G]war
The last [C]nails cite the shame in our [G]coffin
But in the [C]end we must [Am]all die [D]alone
Chorus
So it's to [C]youth I sing you this [G]story
And it's of [C]youth I sing it [G]now
Like the [C]train that derails without [G]warning
I must [Am]leave what I left far be[D]hind
So good[C]bye, sweet Roisi[D]n Dubh
I say [G]goo[C]dby[G]e[C] [G] [C] [G]

Bridge:
And the [D]bark fell from tree
To the [C]ground that they'll [G]bleed
On the [D]anguish that never learned to [G]shout
With the [D]clash of the drum
We'll [C]surrender the [G]gun
and on this [D]sadness we shall no longer [G]speak
Until [C]time can live on our a[G]ll forgotten songs
That's when [C]I and we will sing a[D]gain
So goo[G]dbye to my [C]love, my [D]sweet Roisin [G]Dubh
Goo[G]dbye now un[C]til we meet a[G]gai[C]n[D] [G] [G] [C] [G]
Tell me [C]why must our grief still be [G]greiving
For a [C]language that never spoke it's [G]loss
But this [C]tongue speak with fire will tear [G]down the barb wire
N.C.
And Rip the belly from the waxy ghost
Chorus
So it's to [C]youth I sing you this [G]story
And it's of [C]youth I sing it [G]now
Like the [C]train that derails without [G]warning
I must [Am]leave what I left far be[D]hind
So it's to [C]youth I sing you this [G]story
And it's of [C]youth I sing it [G]now
Like the [C]train that derails without [G]warning
I must [Am]leave what I left far be[D]hind
So good[C]bye, sweet Roisi[D]n Dubh
I say [G]goo[C]dby[G]e[C]
So goo[C]dbye, sweet Roisi[D]n Dubh
I say [G]goo[C]dby[G]e[C]
Until we meet a[G]gai[C]n[G] [C]
Until we meet a[G]gai[C]n[G] [C]
Until we meet...
Outro:
[G]Then she arrives to beautify
But slumber now must [D]rest
Oh my [G]Roisin Dubh
I'll f[C]orever love
The [G]youth you [D]once po[G]ssessed
That's it!!! Most of this song is mandolin driven. But sounds just fine on guitar as
