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
