Came in the captain's daughter, the captain of the yeos
Saying brave united Irishmen, we'll ne'er again be foes
A thousand pounds I give you and fly from home with ye
And dress myself in man's attire and fight for liberty

cho: We are the boys of Wexford, who fight with heart and hand
To break in twain, the galling chain and free our native land
And when we left the cabin boys, we left in right good will
To see our friends and neighbors, who were at Vinegar Hill
A young man from out ranks boys, a cannon he let go
And slapped it into Lord Mountjoy, a tyrant he laid low
