Tipperary so far away


The sun had set with it`s golden rays
And the bitter fight was o’er
Our brave boys sleep beneath the clay
On this earth, they are no more
The moon shone over the battlefield
Where a dying rebel lay
His arms were crossed and his body stretched
His life blood flowed away

There were none to weep for you, Sean Treacy
Or were keen in to sing in your praise
To decide your deeds like the Gaels of yore
On your face, we no longer gaze
In that kingdom of love, may your dear soul rest
On the word that we fervently pray
That we`ll all meet above, the old friends we love
In Tipperary so far away

The soldiers of Erin bore him high
On their shoulders, they solemnly tread
And many a heart with a tearful sigh
Wept over our patriot dead
In silence they lowered him into the grave
To rest ’til his reckoning day
Sean Treacy who died, his home to save
In Tipperary so far away
