The Boys From the County Cork

You've in history's pages
the heroes of great fame.
The deeds they done, the battles won
and how they made their name.
But the boys that mad the history
for the orange, white and green
were the boys who died in Dublin Town
in nineteen sixteen.

So meet the boys from Kerry,
and meet the boys form Clare,
from Dublin, Wicklow, Donegal
and the boys of old Kildare.
Some came from a land beyond the sea,
from Boston and New York.
But the boys who beat the Black and Tans
were the boys from the County Cork.

Now Cork gave us Mick Sweeney,
a martyr for to die.
And Wicklow gave us Dwyer,
in days so long gone by.
And Dublin gave us Padraig Pearse,
McBride and Cathal Brugha.
And America gave us de Valera
to lead old Ireland through.

So meet the boys from Kerry,
and meet the boys form Clare,
from Dublin, Wicklow, Donegal
and the boys of old Kildare.
Some came from a land beyond the sea,
from Boston and New York.
But the boys who beat the Black and Tans
were the boys from the County Cork.
