Long time ago, said the fine old woman
Long time ago, this fine old woman did say
There was war and death, plundering and pillage
My children starved by mountain, valley and sea
And their wailing cries, they shook the very heavens
My four green fields ran red with their blood, said she.

What have I now, said the fine old woman
What have I now, this proud old woman did say
I have four green fields, one of them’s in bondage
In strangers hands that tried to take it from me
But my sons have sons as brave as were their fathers
My fourth green field will bloom again, said she.
