My Last farewell (Sean/Frank O'Meara)

Dearest Mother I am writing just to say I won't be home
There's something that I have to do and I must do alone
They have took me and they've put me in this lonely prison cell
Tonight my thoughts are with you as I say my last Farewell

So say goodbye to Margaret, Mary Bridget and Michal
I have no words to tell you how much I miss you all
And though I may not show it you know I loved you well
So in my final letter I will bid my last farewell

Dearest brother won't you take good care of all the folks for me
Go home to Rathfarnam on the day they set you free
I was happy when you stood by me in all that we've been through
No one has ever had so true a brother such as you


Dearest mother it's so very sad that now we have to part
To understand the reason would trouble your poor heart
I have told you since I was a boy it was my destiny
To die a true brave soldier so that one day you'd be free
