Irish Lyrics and guitar chords for The Enniskellen Dragoons, the tabs were kindly sent by Marc Fahrbach. Written By George Sigerson. The video is Ottile Patterson, and a finer version you wont find, lovely.

(C)Fare thee well Ennis(G7)killen, fare thee well for a (C)while,
And all (Am)around the (G)bor(F)ders
                                    of (G7)Errin's green (C)isle,
And (Am)when the war is (G)over (F)we'll (G7)return in full (C)bloom,
(G7)And (C)you'll all welcome
                                    (G7)home the Enniskillen Dr(C)agoons.
 
Our (C)troop was made (G7)ready at the dawning of the (C)day,
From (Am)lovely Ennis(G)killen (F)they were (G7)marching
                                    us a(C)way.
They
                                    (Am)put us then on (G)board a (F)ship to (G7)cross the raging (C)main,
(G7)To (C)fight in bloody (G7)battle in the sunny land of (C)Spain.
 
Chorus
 
Oh Spain it is a gallant land where wine and ale flow free.
There're  lots
                                    of lovely women there to dandle on your knee,
And often in a tavern there we'd make the rafters ring
When every soldier in the house would raise his glass and sing:
 
Chorus
 
Well we fought for Ireland's glory there and many a man did fall,
From musket and from bayonet and from thundering cannon
                                    ball,
And
                                    many a foeman we laid low, amid the battle throng,
And as we prepared for action you would often hear this song:
 
Chorus
 
Well now the fighting's over and for home we have set
                                    sail.
Our
                                    flag above this lofty ship is fluttering in the gale.
They've given us a pension, boys, of fourpence each a day, And when we reach Enniskillen
                                    never more we'll have to say:
 
Chorus
