A Ballad, as sung by the late Ronnie Drew of the Dubliners (correction! thanks Terry for pointing this out)!, written and also sung by Christy Moore. This ballad, like many others contains many more verses, but here I shortened it, since it is only the musical version....

I will try to add the lyrics here as follows:

Viva la Quinta Brigada
Christy Moore C G C Ten years before I saw the light of morning C F A comradeship of heroes was laid F G From every corner of the world came sailing G F C The Fifth International Brigade They came to stand beside the Spanish people To try and stem the rising fascist tide Franco's allies were the powerful and wealthy Frank Ryan's men came from the other side Even the olives were bleeding As the battle for Madrid it thundered on Truth and love against the force of evil Brotherhood against the fascist clan CHORUS C F Viva la Quinta Brigada F G C "No Pasaran", the pledge that made them fight C C/B Am "Adelante" is the cry around the hillside F G C Let us all remember them tonight Bob Hilliard was a Church of Ireland pastor Form Killarney across the Pyrenees he came From Derry came a brave young Christian Brother Side by side they fought and died in Spain Tommy Woods age seventeen died in Cordoba With Na Fianna he learned to hold his gun From Dublin to the Villa del Rio Where he fought and died beneath the blazing sun CHORUS Many Irishmen heard the call of Franco Joined Hitler and Mussolini too Propaganda from the pulpit and newspapers Helped O'Duffy to enlist his crew The word came from Maynooth, "support the Nazis" The men of cloth failed again When the Bishops blessed the Blueshirts in Dun Laoghaire As they sailed beneath the swastika to Spain CHORUS This song is a tribute to Frank Ryan Kit Conway and Dinny Coady too Peter Daly, Charlie Regan and Hugh Bonar Though many died I can but name a few Danny Boyle, Blaser-Brown and Charlie Donnelly Liam Tumilson and Jim Straney from the Falls Jack Nalty, Tommy Patton and Frank Conroy Jim Foley, Tony Fox and Dick O'Neill CHORUS
