Wrap The Green Flag Around Me Lyrics

Wrap[D] the green flag[G] round me[D] boys,
To die were far more[A] sweet,
With[D] Erin's noble[G] emblem[D] boys,
To[G] be my[A] winding[D] sheet,
In[A] life I loved to[D] see it wave
And[G] follow where it[A] led,
But[D] now my eyes grow[G] dim-my[D] hand
Would grasp its[A] last bright[D] shred.
[Chorus]
Then[D] wrap the green flag[G] round me[D] boys,
To die were far more[A] sweet,
With[D] Erin's noble[G] emblem[D] boys,
To[G] be my[A] winding[D] sheet.
[2]
And I had hopes to meet you boys,
On many a well fought field,
When to our sacred banner boys,
The traitrous foe would yield,
But now at last I am denied,
My dearest prayer,
You'll follow and you'll meet the foe,
But I shall not be there.
[3]
But though my body moulders boys
My spirit will be free,
And every comrade's honour boys
Will yet be dear to me,
And in the thick of bloody fight,
Let not your courage lag
For I'll be there and hovering near,
Around the dear old flag.
