    "Young Ned Of The Hill" Lyrics


    Have you ever walked the lonesome hills
    or heard the curlews cry
    Or seen the raven black as night
    Upon a windswept sky
    To walk the purple heather
    And hear the west wind cry
    To know that's where the rapparee must die

    Since Cromwell pushed us westward
    To live our lowly lives
    There's some of us have deemed to fight
    From Tipperary mountains high

    Noble men with wills of iron
    Who are not afraid to die
    Who'll fight with gaelic honour held on high

    A curse upon you Oliver Cromwell
    You who raped our Motherland
    I hope you're rotting down in hell
    For the horrors that you sent
    To our misfortunate forefathers
    Whom you robbed of their birthright
    "To hell or Connaught" may you burn in hell tonight

    Of one such man I'd like to speak
    A rapparee by name and deed
    His family dispossessed and slaughtered
    They put a price upon his head
    His name is know in song and story

    His deeds are legends still
    And murdered for blood money
    Was young Ned of the hill

    You have robbed our homes and fortunes
    Even drove us from the land
    You tried to break our spirit
    But you'll never understand
    The love of dear old Ireland
    That will forge and iron will
    As long as there are gallant men
    Like young Ned of the hill
