Irish Soldier Laddie

One morning in July I was walking through Tipperary
When I heard a battle cry from the mountains overhead
I looked up to the sky and saw an Irish soldier laddie
He looked at me right fearlessly and said

Will you stand in the band like a true Irish man
And go and fight the forces of the crown
Will you march with O'Neill to an Irish battlefield
For tonight we're gonna free old Wexford town

Said I to the soldier, "Will you take me to your captain
It would be my pride and joy for to fight with you today
My young brother fell at Cork, my son at Enniscorthy"
And to the noble captain I did say


As we marched back from the field
In the shadow of the evening
With our banners flying low to the memory of our dead
We returned to our homes
But without my soldier laddie
But I never will forget those words he said

Chorus X 2
