Irish Soldier Laddie chords – Traditional Irish

 IRISH SOLDIER LADDIE

 C F C 
'Twas a morning in July I was walking to Tipperary
                                    D G7 
When I heard a battle cry from the mountains overhead
      C F C 
As I looked up in the sky, saw an Irish soldier laddie.
    G7 C 
He looked at me right fearless and he said:

Chor    
          G F C 
Will you stand in the band like a true Irishman
                         G G7 
And go to fight the forces of the crown
          C F 
Will you march with O'Neill to an Irish battlefield,
       G C 
For tonight we're going to free old Wexford town


Said I to that soldier lad, would you take me to your Captain
It would be my pride and joy for to march with you today
My young brother fell at Cork and my son at Enniscorthy
To the noble Captain I did say:

Chorus:I will stand in the band ...

As we marched back again in the shadow of the evening
With our banners flying low to the memory of the dead
Oh we came back to our homes, but without our soldier laddie
But I still can hear those brave words that he said:

Chorus:I will stand in the band ...

Chorus:Will you stand in the band ...

Another bodybag 

And all the time your comrades 
Their backs against the wall 
A band of brothers fighting 
One by one they fall

Intro Verses

 G ,  Am7  (1),  Cmaj7 ,  G G 
Did you hear when I called you,
            Am7  (1)
Small and trembling in my ruin
    Cmaj7 G 
Or were you cold as I once told you you could be

(same chords)

Could you feel when I dreamed you,
Every morning on my rise
Dispelling thoughts 'til you were all that I could see


Pre-Chorus
----------
                  D Am7  (1)
Well I've been running from the source so long
            C G 
Broke down easy where I once was strong
       Dsus4 Am7  (1)
I was only getting in the way
        C 
Of the light that blinds you, if you can't take it
 C7 C#7  
Tell me about your reasons now, 'cos we got nothing to hide


Chorus

 D Em7 
   All my pride
        C G 
All my pride would never let me say
 D Em7 
   All my pride
        F G 
All my pride would see you walk away
 D Em7 
   I was waiting on a higher call
         C G 
But the revelation never came, oh what a shame
 D Em7 
   All the same
             Am7  (1)
I hope that everything you ever wanted comes to you some day
 Am7  (2)
    But all my pride would never let me say


Instrumental interlude (same as intro/ verses)
----------------------------------------------


Verse 2 (same as other verses)
----------------------------

Saw the sign at the border, 
For the road that leads me to
The only hope I ever had,the only home I knew

I felt like I was a soldier,
Forever changed by all I'd seen
Wounded in a holy war that was nothing to do with me


Pre-Chorus (same as other pre-chorus)
-------------------------------------

Well some nights amid my broken sleep,
In times of weakness steal a little peek
Forbidden memories when I gave to you
When you stripped me open,
In tender moments
Tell me about your reasons now, 'cos we got nothing to hide

 Firewind - Mercenary Man (Acoustic Version, Chords)

Tune guitar a whole step down.

Note: Listen to the song to hear the strumming pattern. The chords above the words ARE 
NOT TIMED OUT and are just there are a guide.

There is another tab that shows you how to play the intro lead harmony part, fairly accurately.

Also, the guitar solo featured ONE of the guitar leads. Near the end when 3 guitars kick 
in, it gets a little confusing, so you'll need to figure out the other 2 parts.

Intro:
 Am C F Dm Am C G Am C F Dm F Dm Am  (Barred)    G 

Verse:  F - A - G  (Power chords on  A  string)
Mama take a look at your boy
Face a man without a soul
He is standing in the doorway

Barred:  F Am G 
I'll be gone, before the night is over
I have to go, I have to run to the border

 F Dm 
Lost my way I run in desperation
 F G Em  (Might be an  E ?)
Lost the words I lost communication

 Am C F Dm 
All I see is death beneath my window
 Am C G 
All I need is to heal my broken mind
 Am C F Dm 
I will catch my own wounded shadow
 F Dm Am G F !   Dm !
Just before we leave it all behind

Verse 2:  F - A - G  (Power chords)
Mama keep the faith it's alright
Your boy's a mercenary man
A soldier made of steel

Barred:  F Am G 
A shotgun rings; the wind is calling my name
Fields of gold beneath a blood red sky

Home From War Chords – Frightened Rabbit

 G D Em Bm F#m G 
Here I stand like a soldier home from war
 D 
With nothing to do but remember the shutter of bombs
 Em 
I'm sure it never quite goes away
 C 
It never quite goes away, oh
 G 

Here I sit like a beginner beginning again
 D 
And all those fuck-ups counted for nothing 'cause nothing makes sense
 Em 
And I am never quite fully awake
 C 
And never completely asleep, yeah
 G D G 

I’m walking around like a soldier who's home from war

Lost in the foreign landscape I used to know
 Em 
Will I ever feel like I belong?
 C 
Will I ever feel like I belong anywhere?
 G D Em Bm F#m C G 

Well, here I lie like a lover who isn't in love
 D 
Who stares at the cracks in the ceiling six feet above
 Em Bm 
And who knows just how it feels to buckle beneath the weight
 Em 
And there's only so much you can take
 C 
There's only so much you can take
 D 
I might never be normal again
I might never be normal again
Never be normal again
Oh, never be normal again
 Em 
But who cares?
I ask, who cares?
 C 
Oh, who cares?

 G 
And now I’m standing disheveled at your door
 D 
Covered in dust and dirt but full of hope
 Em 
We might never be normal again
 D 
Might never be normal again, but who cares?
 Em 
I ask, who cares?

Rosebud Chords – Ahab

 The chords are correct, but I'm pretty sure I made some mistakes in the lyrics. Enjoy.

AHAB � Rosebud


Verse: 
 G  �  C  �  G  �  D G  �  C  �  G  �  D  �  G 

Chorus: 
 Em  �  C  �  G  -  D 

Verse

There�s a rosebud in my garden
Takes a love and the light
In the morning when I wake up
Yeah, I can see her smile

Verse

Your.............. in the dark times
Keeps the love like the light?
When my friend goes, he�s in my eyes
I won�t forget you tonight

Chorus

When the demons flicker in your eyes
We all knew you were running out of time
We will leave the light on for you
Co�s you were welcome anytime of your life

Verse

There�s a picture in an old frame
Stands alone on the wall
In the middle there�s a soldier
Standing in grace while others fall
Verse
And I know that you never leave them
You won�t answer their call
Maybe you should, I am AHAB
Put your fist through the wall

Chorus

When the demons flicker in your eyes
We all knew you were running out of time
We will leave the light on for you
Co�s you were welcome anytime of your life

When the demons flicker in your eyes
We all knew you were running out of time
We will leave the light off for you
Co�s you were welcome anytime of your life

Travelin Soldier Chords – Dixie Chicks V6

 G 
1.  Two days past eighteen
 
    he was waiting for the bus in his army greens,
          C 
    sat down in a booth in a café there,
               G 
    gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair.
     G 
2.  He's a little shy, so she gave him a smile,
 
    and he said, "Would you mind sitting down for a while,
          C G 
    and talking to me, I'm feeling a little low."
                   F C G 
    She said, "I'm off in an hour, and I know where we can go."
     G 
3.  So they went down and they sat on the pier,
 
    he said, "I bet you got a boyfriend, but I don't care,
       C G 
    I got no one to send a letter to.
               F C G           
    Would you mind, if I sent one back here to you?"
 
     Em C 
    I... cried, never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
     G 
    too young for him they told her,
     D 
    waiting for the love of the travelin' soldier.
     Em 
    Our love will never end,
     C 
    waiting for the soldier to come back again,
     G D 
    never more to be alone when the letter says,
                         G 
    my soldier's coming home.

     G 
4.  So the letters came from an army camp
 
    in California, then Vietnam,
            C 
    and he told her of his heart and it might be love,
         G 
    and all of the things he was so scared of.
 
     G 
5.  He said, when it's getting kinda rough over here,
 
    I think of that day sitting down at the pier.
           C G 
    And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile.
           F C G 
    Don't worry, but I won't be able to write for a while.
 
     Em C 
    I... cried, never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
     G 
    too young for him they told her,
     D 
    waiting for the love of the travelin' soldier.
     Em 
    Our love will never end,
     C 
    waiting for the soldier to come back again,
     G D 
    never more to be alone when the letter says,
                         G 
    my soldier's coming home.
 
+ instrumental = verses 4 & 5
 
     G 
6.  One Friday night at a football game,
 
    the Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sung,
       C 
    a man said Folks would you bow your head
             G 
    for the list of local Vietnam dead.
  
     G 
7.  Crying all alone under the stands
 
    was the piccolo player in the marching band,
         C G 
    and one name read and nobody really cared,
            F C G 
    but a pretty little girl      with a bow in her hair.
 
     Em C 
    I... cried, never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
     G 
    too young for him they told her,
     D 
    waiting for the love of the travelin' soldier.
     Em 
    Our love will never end,
     C 
    waiting for the soldier to come back again,
     G D 
    never more to be alone when the letter says,
                         G 
    my soldier's coming home.
    
     Em C

Bonfire Heart Chords – James Blunt V4

 I like this song, so here is my version. Its higher than the other one because it fits 
my voice better.
* means that the chord should be picked, listen to the song for the exact picking 
pattern, or do something like
-------x-----|
-----x---x---|
---x-------x-|
-------------|
-------------|
-R-----------|
R means pick the string which has the root note.

The bridge is actually a mix of strumming and picking, but you can also just plain pick 
or strum.

The last two chords are in brackets because in the song, there is no guitar here, but in 
case you want to play them, I have put them there.

[Intro]
 C 
[Verse 1]
 C G 
Your mouth is a revolver firing bullets in the sky.
 C G 
Your love is like a soldier, loyal till you die.
 C Am 
And I've been looking at the stars for a long, long time.
                                    F 
I've been putting out fires all my life.
                                                     G 
Everybody wants a flame, but they don't want to get burnt.
G [strum once and hold]
And today is our turn.

[Chorus]
 C Am F 
Days like these lead to nights like this leads to love like ours, 
               C G 
You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
 C Am 
People like us, we don't need that much.
        F C G                          
Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.

[Verse 2]
 C G 
This world is getting colder. Strangers passing by.
 C G                        
No one offers you a shoulder. No one looks you in the eye.
 C Am 
But I've been looking at you for a long, long time.
                                                  F 
Just trying to break through, trying to make you mine.
                                                 G 
Everybody wants a flame, they don't want to get burnt
 G 
Well today is our turn.

[Chorus]
 C Am F 
Days like these lead to nights like this leads to love like ours, 
               C G 
You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
 C Am 
People like us, we don't need that much.
        F C G                          
Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.
