SONG OF THE IRISH LEGION. 39
SONG OF THE IRISH LEGION.
BY JAMES DE MILLE.
E Pluribus Unum ! Erin go Bragh !
YE boys of the sod, to Columbia true,
Come up, lads, and fight for the Red, White, and Blue! Two countries we love, and two mottoes we'll share, And we'll join them in one on the banner we bear: Erin, mavourneen ! Columbia, agra! E pluribus unum ! Erin go bragh !
Upon them, my lads! and the Rebels shall know How Erin can fight when she faces the foe ; If they can't give us arms, sure, we need n't delay ; With a sprig of shillalah we '11 open the way.
Erin, mavourneen ! Columbia, agra !
E pluribus unum ! Erin go bragh!
"Blood-Tubs" and " Plug-Uglies," and others
galore, Are sick for a thrashing in sweet Baltimore ; Be Jabers! that same I 'd be proud to inform Of the terrible force of an Irishman's arm.
