GAY GALTEE MOUNTAINS

 

On the [G] Gay Galtee [C] mountains one [Am] morning in [G] May

I値l tell you a story that [C] happened one [D] day

It痴 [G] about a fair maiden her [C] age was [D] 16

And she [G] sported the [C] colours white, [Am] orange and green

 

A young British soldier was passing that day

And he spied a fair maiden with colours so gay

He rode along side her and jumped from his machine

And he tried to capture the flag of Sinn F駟n

 

You値l not get these colours the fair maiden said

You値l not get these colours until I am dead

I値l fight by the glenside, it remains to be seen

And I値l die for these colours white, orange and green

 

Early next morning in Tipperary town

From the Gay Galtee Mountains this young maid came down

She was sick in her heart it was plain to be seen

For they murdered Tom Ashe for the flag of Sinn F駟n
