Roddy McCorley

C..                            F..          C..
Oh see the fleet foot host of men who sped with faces wan
C..                 F..    C..      F..  C..    G..
from Farmsead and from Fisher's Scot down to the Banks of Bann
C..                   F..    C..    F..    C..   G..
They come with vengeance in their eyes too late, too late are they
C..                                  F..               C..
for young Roddy McCorley goes to die on the Bridge of Taum (toom) today

C..                     F..          C..
up the narrow street he steps smiling proud and young
C..               F..    C..      F..  C..    G..
about that hemp rope 'round his neck, his golden ringlets clung
C..                 F..   C..       F..    C..   G..
there was ne're a tear in his blue eyes, both glad and bright are they
C..                            F..               C..
for young Roddy McCorley goes to die on the Bridge of Taum today

C..                          F..          C..
when he last stepped up that street, his shining pike in hand
C..                F..  C..    F..  C..    G..
behind him marches in grim array a stalward honest band
C..             F..   C..    F..    C..   G..
for Antrim Town, for Antrim Town, he led them to the fray
C..                                  F..          C..
for young Roddy McCorley goes to die on the Bridge of Taum today

C..                          F..          C..
There was ne're a one of all your dead so bravely fell in fray
C..                F..  C..    F..  C..    G..
as he who marches to his death on the bridge of Taum today
C..             F..   C..    F..    C..   G..
true to the last, true to the last, he treads the upward way
C..                                  F..          C..
and young Roddy McCorley goes to die on the Bridge of Taum today
