The Red Army Lyrics - Tyrone Football Song
G.A.A. Football Song 2008-Recorded By Bitz N Pieces to the same tune as ''Galway Girl''. Tyrone went on to win the All Ireland Final in 2008, they also won in 2003 and 2005 and lost in the final with Cork in '09. A Tyrone Banner Song.
We were taking a strool by the old back door
Trying to win the Sam Maguire.
This will be the third time now,
And the stakes they couldn't be higher.
So I ask you friend, come along with me,
Down to Dublin Town with the red army.
Cause I know right now, that we'll give it a whirle
Every Tyrone boy, every Tyrone girl.
Well we stuffed the Dubs. as the rain came down
On a Saturday afternoon.
We knew right then we were on the march
And Sam would be home soon.
So I ask you friend, will we beat Wexford.
[By five or six points on the old score board]
So I shook his hand, and I bid farewell,
So I'm off to Dublin with a Tyrone Girl.
When I woke up on All Ireland Day, ay, I, Ay
With a big rose smile and a ticket for the game
On this fine soft day ay ay.
Cause it's destiny, that we'll play Kerry.
Oh they tried for twice now there going for three.
We've travelled around, been all over this land.
O'h they don't come better than a Tyrone man.
Waffell, and more waffell
