Lyrics to Fare Thee Well Enniskillen
Fare Thee Well Enniskillen Video:
Our troop was made ready at the dawn of the dayFrom lovely Enniskillen they were marching us away.They put us then on board a ship to cross the raging main,To fight in bloody battle in the sunny land of Spain.Chorus:Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a whileAnd all around the borders of Erin's green isle;And when the war is over we'll return in full bloomAnd you'll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons.Oh Spain it is a gallant land where wine and ale flow freeThere's lots of lovely women there to dandle on your kneeAnd often in a tavern there we'd make the rafters ringWhen every soldier in the house would raise his glass and singChorus.Well we fought for Ireland's glory there and many a man did fallFrom musket and from bayonet and from thundering cannon ballAnd many a foeman we laid low, amid the battle throngAnd as we prepared for action you would often hear this songChorus.Well now the fighting's over and for home we have set sail,Our flag above this lofty ship is fluttering in the gale:They've given us a pension boys of fourpence each a dayAnd when we reach Enniskillen never more.we'll have to say.Chorus.
