G                        C          G
His eyes they closed and his last breath spoke
                      Em
He had seen all to be seen
G                        C    G
a life once full, now an empty vase
                         D     G
With the blossoms on his early grave
     C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em              D
And by mornin' we'll be free
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me.

Then the rosary beads count them one, two, three
                           Em
Fell apart as they hit the floor.
       G                     C  G
In our garb of black we must pay respect
                   D      G
To the color we're born to mourn.
     C           G
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys
       Em              D
And by mornin' we'll be free
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me.

G                               C        G
In his place there grew an angry festered wound
                       Em
Filled with hatred and remorse
          G                        C        G
Where I'd pick and scratch till the blood it matched
                         D       G
The silent rage now that fills my lungs
G                                 C        G
For there are many ways to kill a man they say
                        Em
With bayonet, axe, or sword
   G                         C         G
But son a bullet fired from a shapeless guise
                          D       G
Leaves but the shell of a Thompson gun.


     C           G
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys
       Em              D
And by mornin' we'll be free
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me.

Interlude:
    G C G Em
    G C G D G


Em - hold - Em - hold -           D
From the Eastern to the Western shore
Em - hold - Em - hold -              D
Where many men and many more will fall.


       C               G
But no angel flies with me tonight
Em                    D
Till freedom reigns on all
              G                C          G
And curse the name for which we slaved our days
                         D      G
Till every man shall his kingdom come

            G                       C       G
But sure as night turns day ends the passion play
                         Em
Oh my god what have they done
     G                       C      G
With madman's rage well they dug our graves
                  D         G
But the dead rise again you fools


     C           G
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys
       Em              D
And by mornin' we'll be free
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me.


     C           G
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys
       Em              D
And by mornin' we'll be free
- hold -   G    - hold -          C      G - hold -
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
- no chord -
And raise what's left of the flag for me.
