I drink to the death of her manhood
Those men who’d rather have died
Than to live in the cold chains of bondage
To bring back the rights were denied.
Oh where are you now that we need you
What burns where the flame used to be
Are you gone like the snow of last winter
And will only our rivers run free?

How sweet is life, but we’re crying
How mellow, the wine, but we’re dry
How fragrant the rose, but it’s dying
How gentle the wind but it sighs
What good is in youth when it’s ageing
What joy is in eyes that can’t see
When there’s sorrow in sunshine and flowers
And still only our rivers run free.
