Dropkick Murphys lyrics : "Fighting 69th (Traditional)"

Come all you gallant heroes,
And along with me combined
I'll sing a song, it won't take long,

Of the Fighting Sixty Ninth
They're a band of men brave, stout and bold,
From Ireland they came

And they have a leader to the fold,
And Cocoran was his name


It was in the month of April,
When the boys they sailed away
And they made a sight so glorious,

As they marched along Broadway
They marched right down Broadway, me boys,
Until they reached the shore

And from there they went to Washington,
And straight unto the war


[Chorus:]
So we gave them a hearty cheer, me boys,
It was greeted with a smile

Singing here's to the boys who feared no noise,
We're the Fighting Sixty Ninth


And when the war is said and done,
May heaven spare our lives
For its only then we can return,

To our loved ones and our wives
We'll take them in our arms, me boys,
For a long night and a day

And we'll hope that war will come no more,
To sweet America


[Chorus]

So farewell unto you dear New York,

Will I e'er see you once more
For it fills my heart with sorrow,
To leave your sylvan shore

But the country now it is calling us,
And we must hasten fore
So here's to the stars and stripes, me boys,

And to Ireland's lovely shore

And here's to Murphy and Devine,

Of honour and renown
Who did escort our heroes,
Unto the battle ground

And said unto our colonel,
We must fight hand to hand
Until we plant the stars and stripes,

Way down in Dixieland

[Chorus]
