Fair Land Song Lyrics About Oliver Cromwell's Reign Of Terror In Ireland From 1649-53. Words and music by John Gibbs. Recorded by the Shutter Boys Vocals : John Gibbs, Guitar :John Beardsley, Bass : Ken Cook.

Accross the deep ocean
The sailboats came in
The Cromwellian soldiers
Brought a cold bitter wind
The cold blooded devils
They carefully planned
They plundered and tortured
To steal the Fair Land

When castles were burning
The rivers ran red
The soldiers were forging
The battle ahead
The people fell heavy
Beneath a Puritan hand
That spread like a shadow
Across the Fair Land

Apart of the sorrow
Alone with the pain
The blood of the innocent
Flowing again
The wind blew right hard
On child, woman and man
Still left them unyielding
To keep the Fair Land

In spite of oppression
The little church bell
In spite eviction
" To Connacht or Hell"
In spite of destruction
And barbarous plans
A river flowed on
Singing for the Fair Land

A mystical people
With courage and dreams
A beautiful country
With mountains and streams
As tides came and went
Turning stones into sand
A spirit lived on
Roaming through the Fair Land
