Derry Walls

Press The Jukebox To Play The Tune


The time has course gone by boys,

Three hundred years ago,

When rebels of old Derry's Walls,

Their faces dare not show,

When James and all his rebel band,

Came up to Bishop's gate,

With heart and hand and sword and shield,

We caused them to re-treat,



Then work and don't surrender,

But come when duty calls,

With heart and hand and sword and shield,

we'll guard old Derry's Walls.



The blood it did flow in the streams,

For many a winters night,

They new the Lord was on their side,

To help them in the fight,

They only stood upon the walls,

Determined for to fight,

To fight and gain the victory,

And hoist the Crimson high,





At last, at last with one broadside,

Kind Heaven sent her Maze,

The boom was broke that crosses Foyle's shores,

And James he was dismayed,

The banner, boys that floated,

Was run aloft with joy,

God bless the hands that broke the boom,

And saved the Apprentice Boys.
