The first video is Kathleen Largey and the second is The Dublin City Ramblers, both versions of the song are brilliant. Guitar chords by Marc Fahrbach. The 'Ramblers version is taken from an album that was released 'late 1970' or early '60s called ''Irish Republican Jail Songs''

Lyrics as used by the Dublin City Ramblers. Kathleen Largey used slighty different lyrics and  a key of D# mayor (G=D, C=G, Em=Bm, D=A, capo on 1st fret)


Intro:    G-G-C-C



In (G)Ireland's fight for (C)freedom, boys

The (G)North has (Em)played it's (D)part

(G)Though freedom’s day has (C)still to dawn

We've (G)never (D)yet lost (G)heart

For we'll (D)fight it out un(G)til the (Em)end

We'll (G)fight for we (C)cannot (D)fail

We (G)know we'll win al(C)though they have

Our (G)lads in (D)Crumlin (G)Jail.


We (G)gave to Erin (C)Owen Roe

We (G)gave her (Em)Shane O'(D)Neill

And (G)Tone and Cavehill (C)made a vow

That (G)England (D)still can (G)feel

Joe Mc(D)Kelvey did, not (G)die in (Em)vain

He (G)too drove (C)home (D) ???

(He (G)was a (C)Northern (D)Gael)

And (G)that's another (C)reason why,

They keep our (G)lads in (D)Crumlin (G)Jail


So keep (G)on the fight, you (C)volunteers

For (G)God is (Em)on your (D)side

No (G)jail can't break our (C)brave young men

No (G)prison (D)clamp their (G)pride.

For (D)England knows and (G)England (Em)fears

Our (G)fearless (C)Northern (D)Gaels

And (G)that's another (C)reason why,

They’ll free our (G)lads in (D)Crumlin (G)Jail


For (D)England knows and (G)England (Em)fears

Our (G)fearless (C)Northern (D)Gaels

And (G)that's another (C)reason why,

We’ll free our (G)lads in (D)Crumlin (G)Jail
