Kevin Barry - Declan Hunt

In mountoy jail one monday morning

High upon the gallows tree

Kevin barry gave his young life

 

For the 'cause of liberty

 

Just a lad

Of eighteen Summers

And thats no one can deny

As he walked to death that morning

 

He proudly held his head on high

 

Just before he faced the hangman

 

In his dreary prison cell

 

British soldiers tortured barry

 

Just because he would not tell

Tell the names of his brave comrades

And other things they wished to know

'Turn informer and we'll kill you

 

Kevin barry answered no

 

Calmly standing to attention

 

As he bade his last farewell

To his broken hearted mother

 

Whose sad grief no one can tell

 

For the 'cause he proudly cherished

 

This sad parting had to be

 

Then to death walked softly smiling

That old ireland might be free

Another martyr for old ireland

Another murder for the crown

 

Your brutal laws may kill the irish

 

But they will not breats her spirit down

 

Lads like barry they are no coward

From the foe they will not fly

Lads like barry will free Ireland

For Ireland sake

They'll live and die
