Scottish Gunrunners

This stories famous to all Ireland, if you listen i'll tell you it all,
Of the brave men who brought the Clyde Valley to Larne,
In answer to Lord Carson's call,
They landed more rifles, those gunrunning lads,
At Bangor and Donaghadee,
Their cause it was true, for me and for you,
In their fight to keep Ulster free.

Proudly they laughed and they cheered as they gathered,
Waiting for rifles to fight for their cause,
They knew their fight was a flight with Ulster's blessing,
They never flinched though they marched straight into the war.

They came up from Cavan and County Tyrone,
Fermanagh and Monaghan too,
And from Donegal, they heard Carson's call,
From Antrim staunch hearts proud and true,
From Down Armagh, Londonderry as well,
United they all gathered there,
For they were determined, that they would stay free,
Or die for their Ulster so fair.

Proudly they laughed and they cheered as they gathered,
Waiting for rifles to fight for their cause,
They knew their fight was a flight with Ulster's blessing,
They never flinched though they marched straight into the war.

Proudly they laughed and they cheered as they gathered,
Waiting for rifles to fight for their cause,
They knew their fight was a flight with Ulster's blessing,
They never flinched though they marched straight into the war.
