Fighting 69th (Traditional) Lyrics

come all you gallant heroes,
and along with me combined
i'll sing a song, it won't take long,
of the fighting sixty ninth
they're a band of men brave, stout and bold,
from ireland they came
and they have a leader to the fold,
and cocoran was his name
it was in the month of april,
when the boys they sailed away
and they made a sight so glorious,
as they marched along broadway
they marched right down broadway, me boys,
until they reached the shore
and from there they went to washington,
and straight unto the war
chorus: so we gave them a hearty cheer, me boys,
it was greeted with a smile
singing here's to the boys who feared no noise,
we're the fighting sixty ninth
and when the war is said and done
may heaven spare our lives
for its only then we can return,
to our loved ones and our wives
we'll take them in our arms, me boys,
for a long night and a day
and we'll hope that war will come no more,
to sweet amerikay
chorus:
so farewell unto you dear new york,
will i e'er see you once more
for it fills my heart with sorrow,
to leave your sylvan shore
but the country now it is calling us,
and we must hasten fore
so here's to the stars and stripes, me boys,
and to ireland's lovely shore
and here's to murphy and devine,
of honour and renown
who did escort our heroes,
unto the battle ground
and said unto our colonel,
we must fight hand to hand
until we plant the stars and stripes,
way down in dixieland
chorus:
