Verse 1

   Gm                  A#
In eighteen-o-three we sailed out to sea
F            C             Gm
Out from the sweet town of Derry
         Gm                 A#
For Australia bound, if we didn't all drown
     F            C          Gm
The marks of our fetters we carried
       C                      A#               
In our rusty iron chains we cried for our weans
          C                Dm
Our good women we left in sorrow
       Gm                        A#
As the main sails unfurled, our curses we hurled
       F            C           Gm         Gm
On the English and thoughts of tomorrow

Verse 2

        Gm                          A#
At the mouth of the Foyle, bade farewell to the soil
   F           C             Gm
As down below decks we were lying
   Gm                      A#
O'Doherty screamed, woken out of a dream
     F         C           Gm
By a vision of bold Robert dying
    C                      A#
The sun burnt cruel as we dished out the gruel
 C                            Dm 
Dan O'Conner was down with a fever
       Gm                      A#
Sixty rebels today, bound for Botany Bay
    F         C              Gm       Gm
How many will reach their receiver

Chorus 1

A#        F        Gm         F           Gm
Oh oh oh oh oh I wish I was back home in Derry
A#        F        Gm         F           Gm
Oh oh oh oh oh I wish I was back home in Derry

Verse 3

   Gm                         A#
I cursed them to hell as our bow fought the swell
     F                C             Gm
Our ship danced like a moth in the firelight
       Gm                      A#
White horses rode high as the devil passed by
       F         C         Gm
Taking souls to Hades by twilight
C                              A#
Five weeks out to sea, we were now forty-three
     C                       Dm
We buried our comrades each morning
 Gm                       A#
In our own slime we were lost in the time
F            C             Gm      Gm
Endless night without dawning

Chorus 2

A#          F     Gm         F            Gm
Oh oh oh oh oh I wish I was back home in Derry
A#        F        Gm         F           Gm
Oh oh oh oh oh I wish I was back home in Derry

Verse 4

    Gm                 A#
Van Diemen's Land is a hell for a man
F            C             Gm
To end out his whole life in slavery
           Gm                  A#
Where the climate is raw and a gun makes the law
          F            C        Gm
Neither wind nor rain care for bravery
       C                           A#
Twenty years have gone by, I have ended my bond
    C                       Dm
My comrades' ghosts walk beside me
  Gm                  A#
A rebel I came, I'm still the same
        F            C               Gm         Gm
On the cold winds of night you will find me

Chorus 3

A#          F     Gm         F            Gm
Oh oh oh oh oh I wish I was back home in Derry
A#        F        Gm         F           Gm
Oh oh oh oh oh I wish I was back home in Derry
