Legion Of The Rearguard Lyrics

Up the Republic, they raise their battle cry
Pearse and McDermott will pray for you on high
Eager and ready, for love of you they die
Proud march the Soldiers of the Rearguard
Chorus:
Legion of the rearguard, answering Ireland's call
Hark, the march and tramp is heard from Cork to Donegal
Wolfe Tone and Emmett guide you, though your task be hard
DeValera leads you, Soldiers of the Legion of the
Rearguard
Glorious the morning through flame and shot and shell
Now, rally Ireland, your sons who love you well

Pledged they'll defend you, though death or prison cell
Wait for the Soldiers of the Rearguard
Chorus
Crimson the roadside, the prison walls, the cave
Proof of their valour, go sleep in peace ye brave
Comrades tread lightly, you're near a hero's grave
Proud die the Soldiers of the Rearguard
Chorus
Shell shattered fortress and shot scarred brigade
Trumpet the story of the glorious fight they made
Wearied, outnumbered, undaunted, unafraid
God bless the Soldiers of the Rearguard
Chorus
