HANK LOCKLIN


Kevin Barry Lyrics

In MOUNT JOY jail one Monday morning
High above the gallows seen
Kevin Barry gave his young life
For the 'cause of liberty
Just a lad of eighteen summers
Yet no true man can deny
As he walked to death that morning
He proudly held his head up high

Another martyr for old Erin
Another martyr for the crown
The British laws may crush the Irish
But cannot keep their spirits down

Just before he faced the hangman
In his dreary prison cell
The British soldiers tortured Barry
Just because he would not tell
The name of all his brave companions
And other things they wished to know
An informer or we'll kill you
Kevin Barry answered no

Another martyr for old Erin
Another martyr for the crown
The British laws may crush the Irish
But CANNOT KEEP their spirits down
