I Love Old Ireland Still Lyrics And Guitar Chords
Recorded by The Bogside Volunteers, Kathleen Largey, The Irish Brigade and also by Derek Warfield. This song is sometimes called ''Show Me The Man''
[C]Where is the man that does not love the[G] land where[D] he was[G] born,,,[G7]
Who[C] does not think of it with pride, no[G] matter[D] how for[G]lorn?
I[F] on[C]ly[G] know that[C] I[G] love[Am] mine, and[D7] long again to[G] see,,[G7]
O[C]ppression from it banished, and old[G] Ireland once more[C] free.
CHORUS: Let friends all turn against me, let foes say what they will,
My heart is with my country. I love old Ireland still.
You'll find no better island if you search the wide world o'er;
And yet she's sneered at and despised, because her offspring's poor!
If she could only have the wealth that lies beneath her soil,
She'd once more prosper, and her sons might live by honest toil.
There's not an Irishman today would ever wish to roam
Into a foreign land to live, if he could live at home.
Then give her liberty, and let her banner be unfurled,
Then Ireland and her sons may prove a credit to the world
Here are the chords in the key of G
[G]Where is the man that does not love the[D] land where[A] he was[D] born,,,[D7]
Who[G] does not think of it with pride, no[D] matter[A] how for[D]lorn?
I[C] on[G]ly[D] know that[G] I[D] love[Em] mine, and[A7] long again to[D] see,,[D7]
O[G]pression from it banished, and old[D] Ireland once more[G] free.
