about

lyrics

I joined the flying column in 1916
In Cork with Sean Moylan; Tipperary with Dan Breen
Arrested by Free-Staters and sentenced for to die,
Farewell to Tipperary, said the Galtee Mountain Boy

We crossed through pleasant valleys and over hilltops green
Where we met with Dinny Lacey, Sean Hogan, and Dan Breen,
Sean Moylan and his gallant men, who kept the flag flying high
Farewell to Tipperary, said the Galtee Mountain Boy

We trekked the Wicklow mountains, rebels on the run
Hunted night and morning, we were outlaws but free men
We crossed the Dublin mountains; the sun was shining high
Farewell to Tipperary, said the Galtee Mountain Boy

So I'll bid farewell:
To old Clonmel, that I never more will see,
And to the Galtee Mountains that ofttimes sheltered me,
And to the men who fought for liberty and died without a sigh.
May their cause be ne'er forgotten, said the Galtee Mountain Boy.
