Intro

E-A-B-E (all chords are three long) EWell how do you Cmdo young AWillie MBcBride, Do you Bmind if I sBit here down bAy your gravesEide, And rest for a Cmwhile in the Awarm summer Bsun, I've been Bwalking all day andA I'm nearly Bdone. EI see by your gCmravestone you were oFmnly 19, When you Bjoined the great fallen inA 19B16, Well EI hope you died Cmquick and I hFmope you died clean, Or BWillie McBride was itA slow and Eobscene.

Chorus

Did they Bbeat the drum slowly, Did they pAlay the fife lEowly, Did they Bsound the death march, as theyA lowered youB down, Did the Aband play the last post and cEhorCmus, Did the Epipes play the FAlowers of the FBoresEt. And did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind, In some loyal heart is your memory enshrined, And though you died back in 1916, To that loyal heart you're forever 19. Or are you a stranger without even a name, Forever enshrined behind some old glass pane, In an old photograph all torn tattered and stained, And faded to yellow in a brown leather frame. Chorus The sun's shining down on these green fields of France, The warm wind blows gently and the red poppies dance, The trenches have vanished long under the plow No gas, no barbed wire, no guns firing now. But here in this graveyard it's still "No Man's Land", The countless white crosses in mute witness stand, To man's blind indifference to his fellow man, And a whole generation that were butchered and damned. Chorus And I can't help but wonder, oh Willie McBride Do all those who lie here know why they die, Did you really believe them when they told you the cause Did they really believe that this war would end wars. Well, the suffering, the sorrow, the glory, the shame The killing and dying it was all done in vain, Oh Willie McBride it all happened again, And again, and again, and again, and again.
