W:Where oh where is our James Connolly?
W:Where oh where is that gallant man?
W:He's gone to organise the union,
W:That working men might yet be free.
W:
W:Where oh where is the citizen army?
W:Where oh where are those fighting men?
W:They've gone to join the great rebellion,
W:And break the bonds of slavery.
W:
W:And who'll be there to lead the van?
W:Oh, who'll be there to lead the van?
W:Who should be there but our James Connolly,
W:The hero of each working man.
W:
W:Who carries high that burning flag?
W:Who carries high that burning flag?
W:'Tis our James Connolly all pale and wounded,
W:Who carries high our burning flag.
W:
W:They carried him up to the jail.
W:They carried him up to the jail.
W:And there they shot him one bright May morning,
W:And quickly laid him in his grave.
W:
W:Who mourns now for our James Connolly?
W:Who mourns for that fighting man?
W:Oh lay me down in yon green garden,
W:And make my bearers union men.
W:
W:They laid him down in yon green garden,
W:With union men on every side.
W:They swore they'd form a mighty union,
W:And fill that gallant man with pride.
W:
W:Where oh where is our James Connolly?
W:Where oh where is that gallant man?
W:He's gone to organise the union,
W:That working men might yet be free.
