Enniskillen Dragoons A beautiful damsel of fame and renown A gentleman's daughter from Monaghan town As she went through the barracks this beautiful maid Stood up in her coach to see dragoons on parade Fare ye well, Enniskillen, I must leave you for a while And all thy fair waters and Erin's green isle And when the wars are over, I'll return in full bloom And they'll all welcome home their Enniskillen dragoons They were all dressed up the like of gentleman's sons With their bright shining rapiers and carabine guns Their bayonets fornemst them, oh she saw them full soon Just because that she loved an Enniskillen dragoon She looked to the bright sons of Mars on the right Their armor outshining the stars of the night "Oh Willie, dearest Willie, you have 'listed full soon In the royal, loyal Enniskillen dragoons" "Oh Flora, dearest Flora, your pardon I crave Both now and forever, you know I am your slave But your parents they have slighted me, morning, night, and noon Just because that you loved your Enniskillen dragoon" "Oh Willie, dearest Willie, head not what they say For children their parents must always obey And when you've left Ireland, they'll soon change their tune Sayin' 'The good Lord be wi' ye, Enniskillen dragoon'" recorded by Bill Meek SOF
