The law watched young Gannon, each turn that he made
When he broke one bylaw with a belt of his spade
He struck the death blow when he turned his broad back
And he left him there lying where the Dargle runs black

Willie Gannon was convicted and sentenced to die
Now his enemies couldn`t laugh, but his friends couldn`t cry
When he brought down the uniform on that bright summer day
Farewell Willie Gannon, now you sleep `neath the clay
