'Twas a morning in July,
I was walking through Tipperary
When I heard the battle cry
From the mountain over head
And I looked up in the sky
I saw an Irish soldier laddie
He looked at me right fearlessly and said:

Will ye stand in the band like a true Irish man,
And go to fight the forces of the crown?
Will ye march with O'Neill to an Irish battle field?
For tonight we go to free old Wexford town!

Said I to the soldier lad
would you take me to your captain
T'would be my pride and joy
For to march with you today.
My young brother fell in Cork
And my son at Innes Carthay!"
so to the noble captain I did say:

I Will stand in the band like a true Irish man,
And go to fight the forces of the crown?
I Will ye march with O'Neill to an Irish battle field?
For tonight we go to free old Wexford town!

As we marched back again
In the shadow of the evening
With our banners flying low
To the memory of the dead
o we came unto our homes
But without my soldier laddie
and i still can hear those brave words he said

Will ye stand in the band like a true Irish man,
And go to fight the forces of the crown?
Will ye march with O'Neill to an Irish battle field?
For tonight we go to free old Wexford town!

Will ye stand in the band like a true Irish man,
And go to fight the forces of the crown?
Will ye march with O'Neill to an Irish battle field?
For tonight we go to free old Wexford town!
