In Mountjoy Gaol* one Monday morning high upon the gallows tree
Kevin Barry gave his young life for the cause of liberty
But a lad o’ eighteen summers and yet no one can deny
As he walked to death that morning he proudly held his head on high.
Just before he faced the hangman in his dreary prison cell
British soldiers tortured Barry just because he would not tell
The names of his brave comrades and other things they wished to know
"Turn informer or we’ll kill you." Kevin Barry answered, "No."
Another martyr for old Ireland another murder for the Crown
Whose brutal laws may kill the Irish but can’t keep their spirits down
Lads like Barry are no cowards from the foe they will not fly
Lads like Barry will free Ireland for her sake they’ll live and die.
