ORANGE SONGS

The Sash my father wore

For its here I am an Orangeman, just come across the sea
For singing and for dancing, I hope that I'll please thee,
I can sing or dance with any man
As I did in days of yore
And its on the Twelfth I long to wear the Sash my Father wore.

It is old but it is beautiful. Its colours they are fine
It was worn at Derry, Aughrim, Enniskillen and the Boyne
My Father wore it as a youth in the bygone days of yore
And its on the Twelfth I long to wear, the Sash my Father wore.

For it's now I'm going to leave you, good luck to you I'll say
And when I'm on the ocean deep, I hope for me you'll pray
I'm going to my native land, to a place they call Dromore
Where on the Twelfth I long to wear the Sash my Father wore.

It is old but it is beautiful. Its colours they are fine
It was worn at Derry, Aughrim, Enniskillen and the Boyne
My Father wore it as a youth in the bygone days of yore
And its on the Twelfth I long to wear, the Sash my Father wore.

Whenever I come back again my brethren here to see
I hope to find old Orange style, they will always welcome me
My favourite tune's "Boyne Water", but to please me more and more
And make my Orange heart full glad with the Sash my Father wore.

It is old but it is beautiful. Its colours they are fine
It was worn at Derry, Aughrim, Enniskillen and the Boyne
My Father wore it as a youth in the bygone days of yore
And its on the Twelfth I long to wear, the Sash my Father wore.
