Battle of the Boyne (2)

Lyrics

Come don your sash and bowler black
And join the great parade
We’re on our way to celebrate
Sixteen eighty eight
And better still and mores the thrill
Just two years further on
When William Prince of Orange
Won the Battle of the Boyne

CHORUS
So raise the Crimson Banner high
It flies for you and me
And signifies the reason
Why we’re British and we’re free

Now sound the flute and strike the drum
Let’s hear the cymbals clash
And play again ‘old Derry’s walls
Garvagh and the Sash,
As on we march we’ll proudly tell
In story and in song
How William Prince of Orange
Won the Battle of the Boyne.
Chorus

Brave Schomberg, Ormond, Sidney, Solnes
Prince George and Conningsby
They took the bridge of Slane
Duleek and Drohgeda that day
The ‘neath bank bristled bright with pikes
As Ulstermen charged on
And William Prince of Orange
Won the Battle of the Boyne
Chorus
