The Clancy Brothers - Fare Thee Well Enniskillen (with Tommy Makem)

Your rating:
Our troop was made ready at the dawn of the day
From 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

Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a while
And all around the borders of Errin's green isle
And when the war is over we'll return in full bloom
And you'll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons

Oh Spain it is a gallant land where wine and ale flow free
There's a lot of lovely women there to dandle on your knee
And often in a tavern there we'd make the rafters ring
When every soldier in the house would raise his glass and sing:

Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a while
And all around the borders of Errin's green isle
And when the war is over we'll return in full bloom
And you'll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons

Well, we fought for Ireland's glory there and many a man did fall
From musket and from bayonet and from thundering cannon ball
And many a foeman we laid low, amid the battle throng
And as we prepared for action you would often hear this song:

Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a while
And all around the borders of Errin's green isle
And when the war is over we'll return in full bloom
And you'll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons

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 day
And when we reach Enniskillen never more we'll have to say:

Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a while
And all around the borders of Errin's green isle
And when the war is over we'll return in full bloom
And you'll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons
