The Merry Ploughboy

The Merry Ploughboy

I am a merry ploughboy
I plough the fields all day,
But a notion came into my head
That I should run away
I'm tired of civilian life, since the day that I was born
And I'm off to join the I.R.A. I'm tomorrow morn.

cho: We're off to Dublin in the green
        In the green,
        Where the helmets glisten in the sun
        Where bayonets flash and rifles clash
        To the echoes of a Thompson Gun.
