Celtic-End Singer Lyr Req: Fighting Men of Crossmaglen (10) Lyr Req: Fighting Men Of Crossmaglen 07 Feb 03

I am sure this has come up before but after a good bit of searching through the database and various threads I still can't find the lyrics to this song. I have some of the lyrics, but I'm pretty sure they're not complete. The full thing would be most gratefully appreciated.

The chorus is:

In Crossmaglen the fire burns true
The patriotic flame will never die
And when you hear that battlecry
It will be those fighting men from Crossmaglen

I don't have the full lyrics as I said but if this isn't enough to jog anyone's memory I'll post up the rest of what I remember.

I've heard from friends that this is a really well known song (but not well enough that any of them could swear to be sure of the lyrics) and I can only recall hearing it a couple of times myself, but if as I suspect may be the case, this is really well known and I appear to be a bit thick, please forgive my ignorance.
