Bold Fenian Men

1) 'Twas down by the glenside
I met an old woman
A-plucking young nettles.
She ne'er saw me coming.
I listened a while
To the tune she was humming,
"Glory-O, glory-O to the Bold Fenian Men.

2) 'Tis fifty long years since
I saw the moon beaming
On strong manly forms
And their eyes with hope gleaming.
I see them again, sure,
In all my daydreaming.
Glory O, Glory O, to the bold Fenian men.

3) When I was a colleen,
Their marching and drilling
Awoke in the glenside
Sounds awesome and thrilling
They loved dear old Ireland
And to die they were willing
Glory O, Glory O, to the bold Fenian men.

4) Some died by the glenside,
Some died with a stranger,
And wise men have told us
Their cause was a failure
But they fought for old Ireland
And they never feared danger
Glory O, Glory O, to the bold Fenian men

5) I passed on my way,
God be praised that I met her.
Be my life long or short,
I shall never forget her.
We'll maybe have great men,
But we'll never have better.
Glory O, Glory O, to the bold Fenian men
