The Wolfe Tones

"Enniskillen Fusilier"

(Chorus)
Fare thee well, Enniskillen, farewell for a while
And all your fair waters and every green isle
Your green isles will flourish, your fair waters flow
While I from old Ireland an exile must go

A beautiful damsel of fame and renown
A gentleman's daughter of Monaghan town
As she rode by the barracks, this beautiful maid
Sure, she stood on her coach to see dragoons on parade

(Chorus)
Fare thee well, Enniskillen, farewell for a while
And all your fair waters and every green isle
Your green isles will flourish, your fair waters flow
While I from old Ireland an exile must go

Her hair was a brown as the young raven's wing
Her eyes were as blue as the bluebells of spring
And light was her laugh, like the Sun on the sea
'Til the weight of the world came between her and me

(Chorus)
Fare thee well, Enniskillen, farewell for a while
And all your fair waters and every green isle
Your green isles will flourish, your fair waters flow
While I from old Ireland an exile must go

If the worst comes to worst then it's only to die
And the true lass that loves me can hold her head high
Can hold her head high, though her fond heart may break
For her lover loved boldly and died for her sake

(Chorus)
Fare thee well, Enniskillen, farewell for a while
And all your fair waters and every green isle
Your green isles will flourish, your fair waters flow
While I from old Ireland an exile must go
