D  Bm  D  G  D  A Bm  A

Verse:
    D      G
Just a day, another day
 D     A    G
Beneath the Belgian sun
        Em7       D
Passed grave on grave, row upon row
    G    Em  G    A
Until I see the name, John Condon

Verse:
     D          G
Carved in stone with harp and crown
    D    A   G
Little crosses in the ground
       Em7       D
And standing there, my silent prayer
      G    Em   G A
Is for this boy who died a soldier

Chorus:
  D         G
Wee lad will not grow old
Bm          F#m
Heroes who don't come home

Here they lie in Belgian fields
     A D
In fields of wheat

Verse:
              G
Just a recruit in soldiers' blue
   D     A     G
From Ireland's shores to here
      Em7          D
This living hell, this cold (could tell)
        G    Em  G    A
Where young men die like you, John Condon

Verse:
     D          G
And all around, the harp and crown
  D    A   G
The crosses in the ground
       Em7        D
Stands up and proves the bitter truth
       G     Em   G A
The waste of youth that lies forgotten

Chorus:
  D         G
Wee lad will not grow old

In fields of wheat

Now tell me John, 'fore I go on
   D    A      G
What did you come in here for?
        Em7        D
With Ireland's home, your life untold
        G   Em  G A
Fourteen years old to die a soldier

Bridge:
     D          G
And all around, the harp and crown
  D    A   G
The crosses in the ground
G
What cause to serve, so underserved
Bm           G
Heroes that don’t come home
D           F#m
Sing out for all their souls
     G   Bm   D
Here they lie in Belgian fields
     A D
In fields of wheat
