Tommy Fleming singig his rendition of the classic song Four Green Fields, wriiten by Tommy Makem.

What did I have, said the fine old woman
What did I have, this proud old woman did say
I had four green fields, each one was a jewel
But strangers came and tried to take them from me
I had fine strong sons, they fought to save my jewels
They fought and they died, and that was my grief said she

Long time ago, said the fine old woman
Long time ago, this proud old woman did say
There was war and death, plundering and pillage
My people starved, by mountain, valley and sea
And their wailing cries, they reach the very heavens
My four green fields ran red with their blood, said she

What have I now, said the fine old woman
What have I now, this proud old woman did say
I have four green fields, one of thems in bondage
In stranger's hands, that tried to take it from me
But my sons they have sons, as brave as were their fathers
My fourth green field will bloom once again said she.
