Hi,

Does anybody here know the chords to this lovely Eric Bogle song? I heard the June Tabor version with piano accompaniment. I'd love to try to tackle this myself. Getting the chords would be a huge kick start as I am not very good at picking out the chords myself (presently...)

Thanks

Beau

Hi, Beau.......

Well, here's how I do it. The key is E, playing D formation with capo on the second fret. You can fancy it up nicely by adding Dsus4 and/or A7sus4 (easily done without moving from D position).

NO MAN'S LAND - Eric Bogle

Well, [D]how do you do, young [G]Willie Mc-[Em]Bride,
Do you [A7]mind if I sit here, down [G]by your grave-[D]side,
And rest for a while in the [G]warm summer [Em]sun?
I've been [A7]working all day, and [G]I'm nearly [D]done.

I [D]see by your gravestone you were [G]only nine-[Em]teen
When you [A7]joined great fallen in [G]19-[A7]16.
I [D]hope you died well, and I [G]hope you died [Em]clean,
Or, for [A7]Willie McBride, was it [G]slow and ob-[D]scene?

    CHORUS (Each stanza)
    Did they [A7]beat the drum slowly, did they [G]play the fife [D]lowly,
    Did they [A7]sound the dead march as they [G]lowered you [A7]down?
    Did the [G]band play the [A7]Last Post and [D]chorus,
    Did the [G]pipes play "The [Em]Flowers of the [A7]For-[D]est"?

Wow! That was faster than ordering a pizza!

Thanks Tiger! Can't wait to get my hands on my bouzouki or my keyboard!

This is what I play, key is D...

    D                     G          Em
Well, how do you do, Private William Mc-Bride
       A                      D             A
Do you mind if I sit here, down by your graveside
         D                      G
And I'll rest for a while in the warm summer sun
          A                         G          D
I've been walking all day; Lord, and I'm nearly done
                                     Em
And I see by your gravestone, you were only nine-teen
         A7                           D            A
When you joined the glorious fallen in nineteen sixteen
       D                        Em
Well I hope you died quick and I hope you died clean
   A                      G          D
Or Willie Mc-Bride, was it slow and obscene


CHORUS:
         A                            G             D
Did they beat the drum slowly, did they sound the fife lowly
       A                           G          D
Did the rifles fire o'er you as they lowered you down
       G                           A
Did the bugles play The Last Post in chorus
       D             G             A   D
Did the pipes play The Flowers Of The Forest
