Come all you sons of Erin's Isle,
There is none can help admire
This gallant stand for liberty
Made by brave Michael Dwyer.
He fought for life at Glendalough,
Where-in those lines shall tell,
Where at his hand two soldiers
And a base informer fell.

He faced the hills for Glenmalure
And quickly made his way,
And in St Kevin's rocky Bed
For weeks he safely lay.
