Do you remember long ago,
Kathaleen?
When your lover whispered low,
"Shall I stay or shall I go,
Kathaleen?"
And you answered proudly, "Go!
And join King James and strike a blow
For the Green."

Mavrone, your hair is white as snow,
Kathaleen;
Your heart is sad and full of woe,
Do you repent you bade him go,
Kathaleen?
But quick you answered proudly, "No!
For better die with Sarsfield so
Than live a slave without a blow
For the Green."
