Twenty men from Dublin Town


Twenty men from Dublin town
Riding on the mountain side
Fearless of the Saxon frown
Twenty brothers true and tried
Blood flows in the city streets
Where the green is lying low
Here the Emerald standard greets
Eyes alike of friend and foe

Fly the city, brothers tried
Join us on the mountain side
Where we’ve England’s power defied
Twenty men from Dublin town

Twenty men from Dublin town
Full of love and full of hate
Ah, our chief, our Tone is down
Hand of God avenge his fate
Joy it is when e’er we meet
Redcoats on the mountain track
Oh as deer they must be fleet
If to Dublin they getback

Twenty men from Dublin town
Every night around the fire
Brimming glasses we toss down
To our captain Michael Dwyer
Slainte, Michael, barve and true
Then there rings the wild hurrah
As we drink, dear land, to you,
Eire! Slainte Geal go Bragh
