LAST NIGHT I HAD A HAPPY DREAM (GRA MO CHREE)

 

 

Last [G] night I had a [C] happy dream, though [G] restless [D] where I [G] be

I dreamt again, brave [D] Irishmen, had [G] set old [D] Ireland [G] free

And how excited I [D] became, when I [G] heard the [D] cannons [G] roar

Oh Gra mo chree, I [C] long to see, old [G] Ireland [D] free once [G] more.

 

It`s true we`ve had brave Irishmen as everyone must know

O`Neil, O`Donnell, Sarsfield too, Lord Edward and Wolfe Tone

Also Robert Emmett who till death did not give o`er

Gra mo chree, I long to see, old Ireland free once more.

 

Now we can't forget the former years, they're kept in memory still

Of the Wexford men of '98, who fought on Vinegar Hill

With Father Murphy at their side, and the green flag waving o'er

Oh Gra mo chree, I long to see, old Ireland free once more.

 

Allan, O`Brien and Larkin died their country to set free

Someday soon brave Irish men will make the English flee

By day and night they`ll always fight `til death they`ll not give o`er

Gra mo chree, I long to see, old Ireland free once more.
