Build my gallows high

Lyrics

I am a Loyal Ulster man
They say this day that I must hang
Cause I fought the IRA
They say that I must pay
Well they say this day that I must hang

So build my gallows, build them high
That I might see before I die
The Antrim glen and the hills of County Down
And I’ll see again the lights of home

Well, I am a Loyal Ulster man
They say this day that I must hang
I fought those evil men
And I’d do it all again
They say this day that I must hang

So build my gallows, build them high
That I might see before I die
The Antrim glen and the hills of County Down
And I’ll see again the lights of home

I am a Loyal Ulster man
They say this day that I must hang
Well I fought that evil band
And I freed my native land
They say this day that I must hang

So build my gallows, build them high
That I might see before I die
The Antrim glen, the hills of County Down
And I’ll see again the lights of home.
The Antrim glen, the hills of County Down
And I’ll see again the lights of home
