Flogging Molly – A Song Of Liberty Lyrics

Flogging Molly – A Song Of Liberty Lyrics

[?] is in the corner and he’s waiting all alone
[?] fealty hasn’t got a hope
But over on the North side it’s all about to hit
No one realizes what’s about to happen here

Mary’s in familiar ways about to drop a kid
[?] sipping gravy from an empty biscuit tin
The brotherhood are gathered [?] appear
The citizens divided, only want us to be heard

But there was Clarke, James Connolly, Plunkett and Pearse
Ceannt, MacDonagh, Diarmada had no fear
Volunteers together, insurrection they believed
Could be the only answer, oh, to hear our nation sing

This is a song of liberty
Yeah, together rise in unity
One man falls, united we shall be
This is a song of liberty

The casualties were mounting out inside the GPO
There was nothing left but rubble with the burning and the smoke
Kilmainham may be waiting, their fate against the wall
Execute their empty body, all you did was free our souls

This is a song of liberty
Yeah, together rise in unity
One man falls, united we shall be
This is a song of liberty
A song of liberty
A song of liberty
A song of liberty
This is a song of liberty
Liberty

So the next time you drink a [?] from your comfy armchair
Don’t forget the men and women, ’twas their blood for you they shed
Remember [?]
Don’t take their life for granted, it was all they ever knew

But there was Clarke, James Connolly, Plunkett and Pearse
Ceannt, MacDonagh, Diarmada had no fear
Volunteers together, surrender they believed
Could be the only answer, oh, to hear our nation sing

This is a song of liberty
Yeah, together rise in unity
One man falls, united we shall be, yeah
This is a song of liberty
Yeah, together rise in unity
One man falls, united we shall be
This is a song of liberty
Liberty
Liberty
Liberty

By its valor and discipline and by the readiness of its children
To sacrifice themselves for the common good you
