Will you come to the land of O’Neill and O’Donnell
Of Lord Lucan of old and the immortal O’Connell
Where Brian drove the Danes and St. Patrick the vermin
And whose valleys remain still most beautiful and charming

Chorus

You can visit Benburb and the storied Blackwater
Where Owen Roe met Munroe and his Chieftains did slaughter
Where the lambs skip and play on the mossy all over
From those bright golden views to enchanting Rostrevor

Chorus

You can see Dublin City and the fine groves of Blarney
The Bann, Boyne, the Liffey and the lakes of Killarney
You may ride on the tide o’er the broad majestic Shannon
You may sail round Lough Neagh and see storied Dungannon

Chorus

You can visit New Ross, gallant Wexford and Gorey
Where the green was last seen by proud Saxon and Tory
Where the soil is sanctified by the blood of each true man
Where they died satisfied their enemies they would not run from

Chorus

Will you come and awake our lost land from its slumber
And her fetters we will break, links that long are encumbered
And the air will resound with Hosanna to greet you
On the shore will be found gallant Irishmen to meet you

Chorus
