Thomas Davis Bard Of Mallow


Thomas Davis bard of Mallow his songs are a source of joy
They were born of natural genius and will never ever die
His songs sung the whole World over and in some Irish Club tonight
Some one sings the songs of Davis to the listeners delight.

He wrote all of his songs for Ireland when the spirits were depressed
And his Country ruled by aliens and her people were oppressed
And his songs they served their purpose they instilled the will to fight
And were sung by the brave rebels who took on the Saxon might.

In Davis Newspaper 'The Nation' some bards won their first acclaim
Mention one John Keegan Casey that a very famous name
It was in the Nation paper Casey's 'Rising of the moon' did first appear
And that song has been Ireland's battle anthem for almost two hundred years.

But it was not because he founded a Newspaper that the bard of Mallow Town
Enshrined himself in glory and earned literary renown
It was because of his poems and ballads which he penned for Ireland's sake
Songs like 'A Nation Once Again' and of course 'The West Awake'
