In 1912 a Home Rule bill England would impose
And so Lord Carson he did raise an army to oppose
But off to France our boys were sent and Lord Carson he did say
“Go take our sons and tell the Huns, that we are on our way”

And we’re comin, we’re comin we are comin down the road
We’re the volunteers of the U.V.F. and we’re comin down the road
We’re comin we’re comin we are comin down the road
We’re the volunteers of the U.V.F. and we’re comin down the road

So how far have we now come, how far have we to go?
And those we thought who were our friends now stand beside the foe
But take you heed the price is high that you will have to pay
So listen now and heed my words that we are on our way

And we’re comin we’re comin we are comin down the road
We’re the 1st batallion U.V.F. and we’re comin down the road
We’re comin, we’re comin we are comin down the road
We’re the volunteers of the U.V.F. and we’re comin down the road
We’re comin, we’re comin, we are comin down the road

FAIRY HILLS (To the tune of "Si Bheag Si Mhor")

Long long ago in this ancient land
A battle took place where two hills now stand
And on the plain there lay the slain
For neither the battle was won

So the bard did sing of these fairy hills
Where bloom the white flowers and daffodils
One big one small Si Bheag Si Mhor
And never the battle is won

Beneath these hills great heroes lie
Of the Red Branch Knights and their ancient foe
In still of night the immortals fight
But never the battle is won

And so the harper was told these fairy tales
Of these fairy hills of the ancient Gaels
One big one small Si Bheag Si Mhor
And never the battle is won

Twas after the battle the prophet foretold
No rest would be found for these warriors bold
Till they unite and fight one common foe
And then would the battle be won.

So then the harper wrote of these fairy hills
Where bloom the white flowers and daffodils
One big one small Si Bheag Si Mhor
And never the battle is won
