Come on brave boys we’re on for marching
First for France and then for Spain
While canons roar and men are dying
March brave boys there’s no denying
Love, fare you well

I think I hear the colonel crying
“March brave boys there’s no denying
Colours flying, drums a-beating
March brave boys there’s no retreating.”
Love, fare you well

The mother cries “Oh do not wrong me
Do not take my daughter from me
For if you do I will torment you
And after death my ghost will haunt you.”
Love, fare you well

Molly dear do not grieve for me
I’m off to fight for Ireland’s glory
If we love we’ll be victorious
If we die our souls are glorious
Love, fare you well
