W: W:Right proudly high over Dublin town they hung out the flag of war W:'Twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud El Bar W:And from the plains of royal Meath strong men came hurrying through W:While Britannia's huns, with their long range guns sailed in through the foggy dew W: W:'Twas England bade our wild geese go that small nations might be free W:But their lonely graves are by Suvla's waves or the shores of the great North Sea W:Oh, had they died by Pearse's side or fought with Cathal Brugha W:Their names we'd keep where the fenians sleep 'neath the shroud of the foggy dew W: W:But the bravest fell, and the requiem bell rang mournfully and clear W:For those who died that Eastertide in the spring time of the year W:And the world did gaze in deep amaze, at those fearless men, but few W:Who bore the fight that freedom's light might shine through the foggy dew W: W:As back through the glen I rode again and my heart with grief was sore W:For I parted then with valiant men whom I never shall see more W:But to and fro in my dreams I go and I kneel and pray for you, W:For slavery fled, Oh glorious dead, when you fell in the foggy dew.
