fulurum Lyr Req: Boys from County Cork (7) Lyr Add: BOYS FROM COUNTY CORK 21 Feb 00

Well you've read in history’s pages the heroes of great fame
The deeds they done the battles won and how they made their name
But the boys who made the history for the orange white and green
Were the boys who died in Dublin town in 1916

Meet the boys from Kerry meet the boys from Clare
From Dublin Wicklow Donegal and the boys from ol' Kildare
Some came from the land across the sea from Boston and New York
But the boys who beat the black & tans are the boys from County Cork

Now cork gave us McSweeny a martyr he for to die
And Wicklow gave us Dwyer in the days so long gone by
And Dublin gave us Padraic Pearse, McBride and Cathal Bru
And America gave us DeValera to lead old Ireland through

Meet the boys from Kerry...

From the Clancy bros and Tommy Makem
