Inniskillen Dragoons – Irish Songs

Lyrics

Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a whileAnd all around the borders of Erin’s green isleAnd when the war is over we’ll return in full bloom. And we’ll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons
A beautiful damsel of fame and renownA gentleman’s daughter from Monaghan townAs she drove by the barracks this beautiful maidStood up in her coach to see Dragoons on parade
Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a whileAnd all around the borders of Erin’s green isleAnd when the war is over we’ll return in full bloomAnd we’ll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons
They were all dressed out like gentlemen’s sonsTheir fine shining sabres and their carbine gunsTheir silver mounted pistols, she observed them full soonBecause she loved an Enniskillen Dragoon
Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a whileAnd all around the borders of Erin’s green isleAnd when the war is over we’ll return in full bloomAnd we’ll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons
Flora dear Flora your pardon I craveIt’s now and forever that I’ll be your slaveYour parents have insulted both morn, night and noonBecause you would wed an Enniskillen Dragoon
Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a whileAnd all around the borders of Erin’s green isleAnd when the war is over we’ll return in full bloomAnd we’ll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons
Willie dearest Willie don’t heed what they sayFor children their parents are bound to obeyBut when the war is over they’ll all change their tuneAnd you’ll roll me in your arms by the light of the moon
Fare thee well Enniskillen, fare thee well for a whileAnd all around the borders of Erin’s green isleAnd when the war is over we’ll return in full bloomAnd we’ll all welcome home the Enniskillen Dragoons
