Fenians Of The Rock (The Dumbarton Boys)



Oh gather round you people and the truth to you I'll tell,

Of a band of young Fenians in Dumbarton town did dwell,

They were just young lads of Fenian blood for freedom they would die,

And they stood up to those Billy Boys on the 12fth day of July.



So here's to those gallant lads in Dumbarton town that day,

They helped to stop the Orange walk on it's anniversary,

They showed that they did not respect King Billy or the crown,

And they showed those cowardly Billly Boys that Croppy's won't lie down.


On the 12fth day of July my boys to old Dumbarton town,

Came 50,000 Orangemen all loyal to the crown,

They marched along the high street their banners flying high,

Singing "Up to yer necks in Fenian blood, surrender or ye'll die"


But when they reached Dumbarton town they got a hell of a shock,

For standing there undaunted were the Fenians of the rock,

We chased them up the high street up toward the shipyard gate,

Like our fathers did in years gone by like the men of 98.


For they knew they were defeated and they made a hell of a noise,

Crying "Polis please protect us and guard us from the bhoys!"

For the Fenian blood had risen like apheonix from the flames,

That they made them change "My Father's Sash" to "A Nation Once Again".
