Verse 
    D                         Em 
I remember the day, it stands clear in my mind 
         A                    G        D 
We stood down by Dunlaoire to wave you goodbye 
D                                        Em 
Your ma was quietly weeping, there was a tear in her eye 
      A           A7            D 
As we sent you to Gallipoli to die 

              D                           Em 
You looked so young as you stood there, a glint in your eye 
        A                       G              D 
And you sang rebel songs as the streamers flew high 
D                       Em 
Your ma turned away and I heard a sigh 
           A          A7           D 
God you're sailing to Gallipoli to die 

D Em You were all that we had your mammy and me A G D When you marched head erect you were proud as could be D C Em And it killed your poor ma and it's slowly killing me A G D You were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli
Verse D Em We only got the one letter and we knew right away A G D It said deepest regrets your son was bold and he was brave D Em You were only eighteen yet your mammy and I A A7 D Let you go to Gallipoli to die.
D Em You were all that we had your mammy and me A G D When you marched head erect you were proud as could be D C Em And it killed your poor ma and it's slowly killing me A G D You were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli
Verse D Em You fought for the wrong country,you fought for the wrong cause A G D And your ma often said it was Ireland's great loss D Em All those fine young men who marched to foreign shores to fight the wars A A7 D When the greatest war of all was at home.
D Em You were all that we had your mammy and me A G D When you marched head erect you were proud as could be D C Em And it killed your poor ma and it's slowly killing me A G D You were blown to kingdom come on the shores of Gallipoli (6x)
