Whats Left Of The Flag Chords

‣ Flogging Molly
[Verse 1]
G                        C          G
His eyes they closed and his last breath spoke 
                      Em
He had seen all to be seen 
G                        C    G
A life once full, now an empty vase 
                         D     G
With the blossoms on his early grave 
 
[Chorus]
     C                 G
Walk away me boy, walk away me boy 
       Em              D
And by morning we'll be free 
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear 
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me. 
 
[Verse 2]
N.C.
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 
                   D      G
To the color we're born to mourn. 
     C           G
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys 
       Em              D
And by morning we'll be free 
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear 
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me. 
 
[Chorus]
     C           G
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys 
       Em              D
And by morning we'll be free 
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear 
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me.

[Verse 3]
G                               C        G
In his place there grew an angry festered wound 
                       Em
Filled with hatred and remorse 
          G                        C        G
Where I'd pick and scratch till the blood it matched 
                         D       G
The silent rage now that fills my lungs 
G                                 C        G
For there are many ways to kill a man they say 
                        Em
With bayonet, axe, or sword 
   G                         C         G
But son a bullet fired from a shapeless guise 
                          D       G
Leaves but the shell of a Thompson gun. 
 
[Chorus]
     C           G
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys 
       Em              D
And by morning we'll be free 
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear 
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me.

[Bridge]
Em (hold) Em (hold)           D
From the Eastern to the Western shore 
Em (hold) Em (hold)              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 
                         D      G
So every men chose kingdom come

[Verse 4]
            G                       C       G
But sure as night turns day ends the passion play 
                         Em
Oh my god what have they done 
     G                       C      G
With madman's rage well they dug our graves 
                  D         G
But the dead rise again you fools 
 
[Chorus] (x2)
     C           G
Walk away me boys, walk away me boys 
       Em              D
And by morning we'll be free 
         G                    C      G
Wipe the golden tear from your mother dear 
                             D       G
And raise what's left of the flag for me.
