Frank Maher Lyr Req: Erin Go Bragh alt version (17) RE: Erin go Bragh alt version 24 Apr 05


Here's another one I found in an Old Irish Song

ERIN-GO-BRAGH

Ye sons of Hibernia, howe'er low in station,
  Or where'er you be, come attend to my call;
Resist all attempts, and unshackle your nation,
  Old Ireland, I mean, or alas! she must fall.
With burdens so great, and her liberty sinking,
Its beauty nigh gone—on destruction it's brinking;
Then on, my brave boys, don't let stand idly thinking,
  While Ireland's our country, dear Erin-go-bragh.

Oh! Erin, my country, once happy and free,
  With pleasure I stood on thy once native shore;
But, alas! cruel fortune has turned foe to thee,
  Oh! Erin Mavourneen, thy case I deplore.
Bound down by a shackle that's linked by a snare,
By foes base and keen, who have filled thee with care;
Then on, my brave boys, we'll show we play fair,
  For Ireland's our country, dear Erin-go-bragh.

Oh! England, your taunts and your censures give o'er,
  And spite not that country that's equal to you;
But join hand in hand, each day and each hour,
  With Scotland, our friends—all to each other true.
United by friendship, we'll join in a band,
Determined to fight for our kings, laws and land;
Then on, my brave boys, we'll show we play fair,
  For Ireland's our country, dear Erin-go-bragh.
