[Chorus]We're[G] on the one road sharing the[C] one [G]road,
We're on the[C] road to[G] God knows[D] where,
We're on the[G] one road,it maby the[Em] wrong road,
But we're to[Am]gether now who[D] cares,
[G]North men,South men com[Em]rades all,
[A]Dublin Belfast[D] Cork and Donegal,
We're on the[G] one road swinging[Am] along,singing a [A]soldier's[D] song.
[Em]Though we've had our troubles now and then,
[G]Now is the time to make them up again,
[Em]Sure aren't we all Irish anyhow,
[D]Now is the time to[D] step together now.
Tinker tailor every mother's son
Butcher baker shouldering his gun,
Rich man poor man,every man in line,
All together just like Old Lang Syne
Night is darkest just before the dawn,
From disention Ireland is reborn,
Soon we'el have United Irishmen,
Make our land,a nation once again
On the one road : Tin whistle notes
