Lyrics:Oh father, why are you so sad,
on this bright Easter morn?
When Irishmen are proud and
glad
Of the land where they were born."
"Oh, son, I see sad mem´ries view
Of
far-off distant days,
When, being just a boy like you,
I joined the IRA


In hills and farms the call to arms
Was heard by one and all
And from the glens came
brave young men
To answer Ireland´s call
´Twas long ago we faced the foe
The
old brigade and me
But by my side they fought and died
That Ireland might be free


And now, my boy, I´ve told you why
On Easter morn I sigh
For I recall
my comrades all
From dark old days gone by
I think of men who fought in glens

With rifles and grenade
May Heaven keep the men who sleep
From the ranks of the old
brigade

Where are the lads who stood with me
When history was made?
Oh,
gra mo chree I long to see
The Boys of the Old Brigade
