C)Fare thee well Ennis(G7)killen, fare thee well for a (C)while,
And all (Am)around the (G)bor(F)ders
of (G7)Errin's green (C)isle,
And (Am)when the war is (G)over (F)we'll (G7)return in full (C)bloom,
(G7)And (C)you'll all welcome

(G7)To (C)fight in bloody (G7)battle in the sunny land of (C)Spain.

And as we prepared for action you would often hear this song:
Well now the fighting's over and for home we have set
flag above this lofty ship is fluttering in the gale.
They've given us a pension, boys, of fourpence each a day, And when we reach Enniskillen
never more we'll have to say:
