    I sat within the valley green, I sat me with my true love
    My sad heart strove the two between, the old love and the new love
    The old for her, the new that made me think on Ireland dearly
    While soft the wind blew down the glen and shook the golden barley

    'Twas hard the woeful words to frame to break the ties that bound us
    But harder still to bear the shame of foreign chains around us
    And so I said, "The mountain glen I'll seek at morning early
    And join the bold united men, while soft winds shake the barley"

    While sad I kissed away her tears, my fond arms round her flinging
    The foeman's shot burst on our ears from out the wildwood ringing
    A bullet pierced my true love's side in life's young spring so early
    And on my breast in blood she died while soft winds shook the barley

    But blood for blood without remorse I've taken at Oulart Hollow
    And laid my true love's clay cold corpse where I full soon may follow
    As round her grave I wander drear, noon, night and morning early
    With breaking heart when e'er I hear the wind that shakes the barley
