Where O where is the citizen army
Where O where are those fighting men?
They’ve gone to join the Great Rebellion
And break the bonds of slavery

And who’ll be there to lead the van
O who’ll be there to lead the van?
Who should be there but our James Connolly
The hero of each working man

Who carries high that burning flag
Who carries high that burning flag?
‘Tis our James Connolly all pale and wounded
Who carries high our burning flag

They carried him up to the jail
They carried him up to the jail
And there they shot him one bright May morning
And quickly laid him in his grave

Who mourns now for our James Connolly
Who mourns for the fighting man?
O lay me down in yon green garden
And make my bearers Union men

We laid him down in yon green garden
With Union men on every side
And swore we’d make one mighty Union
And fill that gallant man with pride

Now all you noble Irishmen
Come join with me for liberty
And we will forge a mighty weapon
And smash the bonds of slavery!
