Irish Folk White, Orange And Green Lyrics

White Orange And Green

Verse 1: In the Boal Gouty Mountains, so far far away,
Em D
I will tell you a story that happened one day,
About a young girl her age was 16
G Em C G
And she carried a banner White Orange and Green

Verse 2: And a young English soldier was passing her way,
He saw the young girl with her banner so gay,
He laughed and joked and got off his machine,
He turned to capture White Orange and Green,

Verse 3: Oh you cant have my banner the young girl replied,
Till your blood and my blood on the Boal Gouties lie,
I am a rebel and that's nothing mean,
And I'd lay down my life for White Orange and Green

Verse 4: And the young English soldier turned white as the snow,
Got on his machine and away he did go
For there's no use in fighting a girl of 16
Who would die for a banner White Orange and Green
