SING AN IRISH SONG 
DONAL CAWLEY
Chorus:
Sing an Irish song  
And raise your glass
To praise those days of old
It's where our hearts belong So gather round As our songs and stories are told

There's couples dancing 'round
To the fiddles merry sound
She tingled just as she caught his eye
And across the evening fields
As darkness slowly steals
The stars can hear a lover's sigh

Chorus:

The Gaels are on the seas
There's hardship in the breeze
Dan Lynch he's lying cold blow
I've left the county Clare
The landlord paid my fare
An exile from famine force to go

Chorus:

A man stood proud and bold
Outside the GPO
The foreigner his gallant lads did tame
His unifom we've worn
A nation was reborn
This man he set the fire aflame

Chorus: X2
