Meet me at the Pillar
(Sean/Frank O'Meara)

In was walking down by Islandbridge just doing as I please
This April day the sun was warm there was but a gentle breeze
I wandered up the old stone steps Into the Phoenix Park
To watch the children laugh and play in the hours before the dark

I strolled up by the monument and lay down on the ground
Then people started crying when they heard the battle sound
I don't know what came over me for a moment I could hear
The echo of a soldiers voice kept calling in my ear

Meet me at the pillar son meet me there at noon
I need you brave young Irishmen there's something we must do
Meet me at the pillar son it still is not to late
It's time to sing a freedom song come soon I cannot wait

I looked around to see this man but nobody was there
In the distance I could hear the drums yet stillness filled the air
I turned around and in my dream a soldier I could see
He said his name was Padraig Pearse and he kept on calling me
