Soldiers Song (Gaelic) Soldiers Song (Gaelic)   Tune: Soldiers Song    
FromYorkshire Tim (21st December 2005)    
Words:
Seo dhibh a cháirde duan Óglaigh
Cathréimeach briomhar ceolmhar
Ár dtinte cnámh go buacach táid
'S an spéir go min réaltogach
Is fonnmhar faobhrach sinn chun gleo
'S go tiúnmhar glé roimh thíocht do'n

Fé chiúnas chaomh na hoiche ar seol
Seo libh canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann

[chorus]
Sinne Fianna Fáil
A tá fé gheall ag Éirinn
buion dár slua
Thar toinn do ráinig chugainn
Fé mhóid bheith saor
Sean tír ár sinsir feasta
Ní fhagfar fé'n tiorán ná fé'n tráil
Anocht a théam sa bhearna bhaoil
Le gean ar Ghaeil chun báis nó saoil
Le guna screach fé lámhach na bpiléar
Seo libh canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann

Cois bánta réidhe, ar árdaibh sléibhe
Ba bhuachach ár sinsir romhainn
Ag lámhach go tréan fé'n sár-bhrat
séin
Tá thuas sa ghaoith go seolta
Ba dhúchas riamh d'ár gcine cháidh
Gan iompáil siar ó imirt áir
'S ag siúl mar iad i gcoinne námhad
Seo libh, canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann

[chorus]

A bhuíon nách fann d'fhuil Ghaeil is
Gall
Sin breacadh lae na saoirse
Ta scéimhle 's scanradh i gcroíthe
namhad
Roimh ranna laochra ár dtire
Ár dtinte is tréith gan spréach anois
Sin luisne ghlé san spéir anoir
'S an bíobha i raon na bpiléar agaibh
Seo libh, canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann

[chorus]

  Notes:
This is the Soldiers Song (Irish
national anthem) in the Gaelic language.
 

Wild Rover Wild Rover   Tune: Wild Rover    
FromYorkshire Tim (06th December 2005)    
Words:
I've been a wild rover for many a year
And I spent all my money on whiskey
and beer,
And now I'm returning with gold in
great store
And I never will play the wild rover
no more.

Chorus:

And it's no, nay, never,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more.

I went to an ale-house I used to
frequent
And I told the landlady my money was
spent.
I asked her for credit, she answered
me "nay,
For 'tis custom as yours I could have
any day."

Chorus

Then out of my pocket I pulled
sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide
with delight.
She said "I have whiskey and wines of
the best
And the words that I spoke sure were
only in jest."

Chorus
  Notes:
Well known Irish song
 

Fields Of Athenry Fields Of Athenry   Tune: Fields Of Athenry    
FromYorkshire Tim (05th December 2005)    
Words:
By lonely prison wall, I heard a young
girl calling,
Michael they are taking you away,
For you stole Trevelyns corn,
So your young might see the morn,
It's so lonely round the Fields of
Athenry,

Chorus:

Low lie the Fields of Athenry,
Where once we watched small free bird
fly,
Our love was on the wing,
We had dreams and songs to sing,
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of
Athenry,

By lonely prison wall I heard a young
man calling,
Nothing matters Mary when you're free,
Against the famine and the crown,
I rebelled, they cut me down,
Now you must raise our child with
dignity.

Chorus

By lonely harbour wall, she watched
the last hour falling,
As the prison-ship sailed out against
the sky,
But she'll live and hope and pray,
For her love in Botany Bay,
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of
Athenry.

Chorus
  Notes:
Sang by Ireland and Celtic, about the
famine in Ireland.
 

Soldiers Song Soldiers Song   Tune: Soldiers Song    
FromYorkshire Tim (05th December 2005)    
Words:
We'll sing a song, a soldier's song
With cheering, rousing chorus
As round our blazing fires we throng,
The starry heavens o'er us;
Impatient for the coming fight,
And as we await the morning's light
Here in the silence of the night
We'll chant a soldier's song.

Soldiers are we, whose lives are
pledged to Ireland
Some have come from a land beyond the
waves.
Sworn to be free, no more our ancient
sireland
Shall shelter the despot or the slave;
Tonight we man the bearna baoghal
In Erin's cause, come woe or weal;
'Mid cannon's roar and rifle's peal
We'll chant a soldier's song.
  Notes:
Irish National Anthem

come out ye black 'n' tans come out
'n' fight me like a man show your wife
how you won medals down in flanders tell
her how the IRA made you run like hell
away from the green old lovely lanes of
Killashandra.

Come let us hear you tell how you
slandered great Parnell,
When you thought him well and truly

Where are the sneers and jeers that
you bravely let us hear
When our heroes of '16 were executed?

it is sung about the 'black 'n' tans'
who were brutal british bastad soldiers
to the irish. A great rebel song.
