wo - men there for wear - in' o' the green.
Then since the color we must wear is Eng­land's cruel red,
Sure Ireland's sons will ne'er forget the blood that they have shed;
You may take the shamrock from your hat, and cast it on the sod,
But 't will take root and flourish still, though under foot 't is trod.
When the law can stop the blades of grass from growing as they grow,
And when the leaves in summertime their verdure dare not show,
Then I will change the color I wear in my
corbeen; And till that day, please God, I '11 stick to
wearin' o' the green.
But if at last our color should be torn from
Ireland's heart, Her Sons with shame and sorrow from the
dear ould soil will part; I 've heard whispers of a country, that lies
far beyant the sae, Where rich and poor stand equal in the light
of freedom's day.
