Last Night I Had a Happy Dream

Last Night I Had a Happy Dream

Last night I had a happy dream, though restless where I be
I dreamed again, brave Irishmen, had set old Ireland free
And how I got excited, when the cannons loud did roar
Oh Gra mo chree, I long to see, old Ireland free once more

Now we can't forget the former years, they're kept in memory still
Of the Wexford men of '98, who fought on Vinegar Hill
With Father Murphy at their side, and the green flag waving o'er
Oh Gra mo chree, I long to see, old Ireland free once more
     "Last Night I Had a Happy Dream" was given a new
lease, when Ed McCurdy rewrote it as a peace song.
