He is gone away across the sea
To the land of liberty
To get his name enrolled in vain
with men of loyalty
But he'll come back again to the track
That brought him far away
From the home he had in sweet
To the shores of America
That darling lad that left Clonfad
For no dishonoured crime
He now has left his friends bereft
All in his youth and prime
The ladies heart will feel the smart
That often pressed his hand
Her heart will break for her love's sake
That’s in an alien land
He was a friend you may depend
To the good old Irish Cause
And once he fell you all know well
Into the meshes of the law
But noble Brown of high renown
Good interest sure he had
One word he spoke when the chains were broke
On the patriot of Clonfad.
