The Croppy Boy Lyrics

'Twas early early all in the spring
The birds did whistle and sweetly sing
Changing their tune from tree to tree
And the song they sang was 'Old Ireland Free'
'Twas early early all in the night
The yoeman cavalry gave me a fright
The yoeman cavalry were my downfall
And taken was I by Lord Cornwall
As I was walking up Wexford street
My own first cousin I chanced to meet
My own first cousin did me betray

And for one bare guinea sold my life away
As I was walking up Wexford Hill
Oh, who would blame me to cry my fill
I looked behind and I looked before
But my aged mother I will see no more
As I was mounted on the platform high
My aged father was standing by
My aged father did me deny
And the name he gave me was the croppy boy
'Twas in Dungannon this young man died
And in Dungannon his body lies
So, all good people who do pass by
Just drop a tear for the croppy boy
