The First Cork Brigade Brigade Irish Song lyrics And Guitar Chords. This is an old Irish rebel song dedicated to the fighting first Cork brigade of the I.R.A.

When[G] Lloyd George's hired gunmen came and shot MacCurtain down,
They [C]thought the I.R.A. was dead in [G]Cork's own rebel town.
But they got a rude awakening when the debt was partly [Em]paid
In Lisburn [Am]and the Lower[D] Road by the[C] First Cork [G]Brigade.
 
Chorus:
Glory, Glory to old Ireland,
Glory, Glory to our sireland.
Glory, Glory to the men who fought and fell.
No surrender is the war-cry of the First Cork Brigade.
 
We bombed them in the Abbey, we bombed them in the Glen.
We bombed them up in Dillon's Cross, they bombed us back again. We bambed them in the "Wessie" and we bombed them in the Parade, And we gave them who began it in the First Cork Brigade.
Chorus:
 
 
We have no shiny gaiters or no Sam Brown belts to show. But we're able to defend ourselves wherever we may go.
We're out for the Republic and to h-11 with ye're Free State. We are the boys of the First Cork Brigade.
Chorus:

If this song looks familiar it's because there is another song that came later where the lyrics are very similar called The Belfast Brigade which Gary Og had out. As with many of the rebel songs that were written at the time the writer wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution. There is no record of this song ever been recorded,[as far as I know] so If you want to record it then you will be the first.
