   G                               D        G    - C                                                G

1.    Walkin‘ out on a stormy day,        the cold wind, the fine sea spray,

G                             D          G   - C                                                     G

    lookin’ out over Galway Bay,         the troubled sky, all dark and grey.

Am      Em              Am               Em             - F                 G

    Far from these shores there stands liber......ty, so let it be,

Am     Em       Am      G           D

    but every while I would remember ….

 

                                 G                        D

The day we drank moonshine in the rain,

                           C                   G    

and raised our glasses to the wind,

                             C                               G

the day that we dreamed we could be free,

                       Em               D

and riding on wings of liberty.

                  G                         D

So here’s one more for our friends,

                    C                      G 

and here’s one for our children,

                   C                      G

feeling the cold rain on our fingertips

          Em           D         C      - G

and moonshine on our lips.

 

   G                                                  D              Em

2.    So we paid our dues and we packed our rags,

C                                              G

     made it thru’ Ellis Island’s ranks,

G                                       D  Em

    across the waves to America,

        C                                                          G

    hearts and souls to the stripes and the stars.

Am      Em          Am          Em           F                G

    Far from our shores we found liberty, so let it be,

Am     Em      Am       G           D

    but every while I would remember ....

 

+  CHORUS

 

   G                                                         D                Em

3.    So we made our way through the Cumberland Gap,

     C                                        G

    Appalachia, never looking back,

G                                                          D            Em

    through the wind and rain, and the cold and pain,

           C                                                  G

    but nothing evermore could feel the same.

Am    Em     Am      Em                 F                 G

    All of this life we strived to be free, so let it be,

Am     Em       Am      G           D

    but every while I would remember.

 

+  CHORUS       +  G - D - C - G     - C - G - Em - D - C - D

 

    G                       D

Moonshine in the rain,

                           C                   G

and raised our glasses to the wind,

                             C                               G

the day that we dreamed we could be free,

                       Em               D

and riding on wings of liberty.

                  G                         D

So here’s one more for our friends,

                    C                      G 

and here’s one for our children,

                   C                      G                  EmD C

feeling the cold rain on our fingertips and liberty !

 

+  CHORUS     +  C …..
