    Lyrics

    and so the story's told of a hearty group of men
    it's a tale of their triumphs and their woes
    be it raids the melee's aincent or the modern workers struggle
    and inspires men to stand up for their rights
    and should we fall down by the wayside in this ever-changing world
    we can look back to these heroes of our past
    with their staunch determination and ferocious iron will
    no tyranny would quell them in their task

    it's an age old situation with an ever present message
    that time and tide waiteth for no man
    so with out fear of confrontation and the consequence of outcome
    it's for freedom and for happiness they toiled
    and in looking to the future we can see a better place
    where we can shake the yoke of tyranny for all
    it's been paved by generations who have gone now to their rest
    it's just remembrance of their dignity we ask

    (chorus) so come on rally 'round this brave and valiant cause
    with tradition pride and honor at it's core
    with swords drawn to defend stood these noblehearted men
    faugh-an-ballagh clear the way me boys

    under perilous conditions with small hope of success
    they left behind the lives that they once led
    and by virtue of their fortitude and singleminded strength
    they cleared the way for the people of today
    so when we think back to our ancestors respectfully we hark
    and thank the men whose struggle broke the chain
    it's a long road up ahead of us let's forge on while we're strong
    and leave our mark of honor once again

    (chorus) so come on rally 'round this brave and valiant cause
    with tradition pride and honor at it's core
    with swords drawn to defend stood these noblehearted men
    faugh-an-ballagh clear the way me boys

    and so the story's told and it comes now to an end
    it's setting any era any land
    when abusive tyrants force the hands of matters great or small
    it inspires men to stand up for their rights
