Lonnie Donegan - My Only Son Was k**ed in Dublin (The Dying Rebel) lyrics

C F C The night was dark, the battle ended, C F C The moon shown down O'Connell street, Am C F C I stood alone where our brave men perished, C G F C These men have gone their God to meet. CHORUS C F C My only son was shot in Dublin, C F C Fighting for his country bold, Am C F C He fought for Ireland and for Ireland only, C G F C The harp and shamrock, green white and gold. C F C The first I met, was a grey haired father, C F C Searching for his only son, Am C F C I said old man, so there's no use searching, C G F C Your only son to heaven has gone CHORUS: C F C My God he cried, I am broken hearted, C F C My God he cried, going on his knees, Am C F C I knew my son was too kindhearted, C G F C I knew my son would never yield CHORUS C F C The last I met was a dying rebel, C F C Bending low, I heard him say, Am C F C God bless my home in dear Cork city, C G F C God bless the cause for which I die CHORUS *** Thanks Paddy Caplice for these lyrics
