The Galtee Mountain Boy

I joined the flying column in nineteen and 16
In Cork with Sean Moylan Tipperary with Dan Breen
arrested by free-staters and senteneced for to die
Farewell to Tipperary said the galtee mountain boy

We went across the valleys and over the hilltops green
Where we met with Dinny Lacey, Sean Hogan and Dan Breen
Sean Moylan and his gallant men they kept the flag flying high
Farewell to Tipperary said the Galtee mountain boy

We trekked the Wicklow mountains we were rebels on the run
Tho' hunted night and morning we were outlaws but free men
We roamed the Dublin mountains as the sun was shining high
Farewell to Tipperary said the Galtee mountain boy

Oh I'll bid farewell to old Clonmell I never again will see
And to the Galtee mountains that offtimes sheltered me
The men who fought for their liberty and who died without a sigh
May their cause be n'er forgotten said the Galtee mountain boy
