G                            C           G
His eyes they closed and his last breath spoke
G                     Em
He had seen all to be seen
  G                      C     G
A life once full, now an empty vase
         G               D     G
With the blossoms on his early grave
      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em                D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
          G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                 G           D        G
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.

                                 X    X    X
Then the rosary beads count them one, two, three
                           Em
Fell apart as they hit the floor.
       G                     C      G
In our garb of black we must pay respect
       G           D       G
To the color we\'re born to mourn.
      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
      Em                D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
         G                     C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                 G           D        G
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.


Violin riff part 1
(see bottom of page)

       G                         C        G
In his place there grew an angry festered wound
             G           Em
Filled with hatred and remorse
          G                         C        G
Where I\'d pick and scratch till the blood it matched
           G             D        G
The silent rage now that fills my lungs
              G                   C        G
For there are many ways to kill a man they say
     G                  Em
With bayonette, axe, or sword
          G                   C         G
But son a bullet fired from a shapeless guise
               G          D        G
Leaves but the shell of a Thompson gun.

      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em               D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
         G                     C       G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                 G           D        G
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.


Violin riff part 1
(see bottom of page)


Em               Em             D
From the Eastern to the Western shore
      Em           Em             D
Where many men and many more will fall.
       C                G
But no angel flies with me tonight
     Em                D
Till freedom reigns on all
              G                 C          G
And curse the name for which we slaved our days
           G             D       G
Till every man shall his kingdom come


Violin riff part 3
(see bottom of page)


            G                        C       G
But sure as night turns day ends the passion play
      G                  Em
Oh my god what have they done
     G                       C       G
With madman\'s rage well they dug our graves
        G           D       G
But the dead rise again you fools

      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em               D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
         G                     C       G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
                  G          D        G
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.
      C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy
       Em               D
And by mornin\' we\'ll be free
         G                     C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear
[N.C]
And raise what\'s left of the flag for me.
