    Lyrics:

    Mo chara is mo lao thu!
    (My friend and my calf)
    Is aisling trí néallaibh
    (A vision in dream)
    Do deineadh aréir dom
    (Was revealed to me last night)
    IgCorcaigh go déanach
    (In Cork, a late hour)
    Ar leaba im aonar
    (In my solitary bed)

    I remember you back in the GPO with Connolly and Clarke
    Laughin' with McDermott through the bullets and the sparks
    Always with the smart remark, your eyes blazin' and blue
    But when we needed confidence we always turned to you
    And when they shot our leaders up against Kilmainham wall
    You were there beside us in that awful Easter dawn
    Hey, big fellah..........where the hell are you now
    When we need you the most
    Hey, big fellah..........c'mon

    Tabhair dom do lámh
    (Give me your hand)

    Back on the streets of Dublin when we fought the black and tans
    You were there beside us, a towerin' mighty man
    And God help the informer or the hated English spy
    By Jaysus, Mick, you'd crucify them without the blinkin' of an eye
    Still you had a heart as soft as the early mornin' dew
    Every widow, whore and orphan could always turn to you
    We beat them in the cities and we whipped them in the streets
    And the world hailed Michael Collins, our commander and our chief
    And they sent you off to London to negotiate a deal
    And to gain us a republic, united, boys, and real
    But the women and the drink, Mick, they must have got to you
    'Cause you came back with a country divided up in two

    We had to turn against you, Mick, there was nothin' we could do
    'Cause we couldn't betray the republic like Arthur Griffith and you
    We fought against each other, two brothers steeped in blood
    But I never doubted that your heart was broken in the flood
    And though we had to shoot you down in golden Béal na Blath
    I always knew that Ireland lost her greatest son of all.

  • Black 47 - James Connolly

    6:03

    Black 47 anthemic tribute to James Connolly - socialist union leader, one of those who led the Easter 1916 uprising and were subsequently executed by the British. Black 47 recaptures the working class spirit and passion of James Connolly in their song.

    Larry Kirwan, lead singer of the band who wrote the song explains:
    With [1916 Irish socialist hero] James Connolly, I hated the old standard song The Ballad of James Connolly. As a socialist myself, I resented that he had been railroaded by tears-in-the-beer nationalism. I thought that Connolly would have resented that, too. I always have to find a way to enter [the person's] spirit, as it were. With Connolly, it was quite simple. What must he have felt-knowing that he was going to be executed-about leaving his family fatherless and penniless? Once I found that chink in the armor, the rest was just a matter of diligent and knowledgeable songwriting.

  • Black 47 - Danny Boy

    5:22

    Danny Boy lyrics
    Songwriters: Kirwan, Larry;

    Danny came over to old New York
    From Bandon town in the county Cork
    He got a room on the avenue in Woodside Queens
    And a job off the books doin' demolition

    He was kind of different than everyone else
    Oh, he liked to hang out all by himself
    Didn't hit those bars in Sunnyside Queens
    Went straight into the Village to check out the scene

    One day on the job the foreman said
    Hey Danny Boy, we think you're a fag
    With your ponytail and that ring in your ear
    Hey, we don't need no homos foulin' up the air

    Danny just smiled and picked up a 2 by 4
    And he split that jerk from his jaw to his ear
    Said, You can stick your job where the sun don't shine
    But you're never gonna stop me bein' what I am, boy

    Then he met a man down in Sheridan Square
    They moved in together for a couple of years
    Said, it was the happiest he'd ever been
    Doin' what he wanted and livin' his dream

    We used to drink together down on Avenue B
    One gray dawn he confessed to me
    Love's the only thing that makes the world go 'round
    And I'm never gonna see another sunset over sweet Bandon town

    Last time I saw Dan, he was in a hospital bed
    Two tubes hangin' out the nose of his head
    But he smiled at me with them stone blue eyes
    And he said, Hey, how you doin' guy?

    I'm history 'round here in a couple of weeks
    But I did what I wanted, I got no regrets
    So, when you think of me, crack a beer and smile
    Hey, life's a bitch and then you die

    Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are callin'
    From glen to glen and down the mountainside
    The summer's gone and all the flowers are dyin'
    'Tis you, 'tis you, must go and I must bide

    But come you back when summer's in the meadow
    Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
    'Tis I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow
    Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so
    I love you so, Danny boy, I love you so

  • BLACK 47 - Black 47 - w/ Lyrics

    7:30

    God's curse upon you Lord Trevelyan
    May your great Queen Victoria rot in hell - BLACK 47

    Everything is still not a chicken not a body
    Just an awful sicken silence roarin' in my brain
    And the fog of death deepens and lies upon the land
    An ould wan rolls over on her back
    The grass stains still green upon her chin
    I can still hear her keenin' and screamin' in the wind

    God's curse upon you, Lord John Russell
    May your black hearted soul rot in hell
    There's no love left on earth and God is dead in heaven
    In these dark and deadly days of Black 47

    God's curse upon you, Lord Trevalian
    May your great Queen Victoria rot in hell
    'Til England and its empire answer before heaven
    For the crimes they committed in Black 47

    Paudie says Come on now
    Don't look back, she's not livin', she's a phantom
    And she'll curse us if we look into her eyes

    Oh God, I think I'm dyin' the fever's in my brain
    For can't you see that pack of children up ahead?
    The beards of old men sproutin' from their chins
    Can't you hear their screams of hunger on the wind?

    God's curse upon you, Lord John Russell
    May your black hearted soul rot in hell
    There's no love left on earth and God is dead in heaven
    In these dark and deadly days of Black 47

    God's curse upon you, Lord Trevalian
    May your great Queen Victoria rot in hell
    'Til England and its empire answer under heaven
    For the crimes they committed in Black 47

    [Incomprehensible]

    Darlin' Paudie save me, I think I'm sinkin' fast, me blood is boilin'
    Don't let me die here in a ditch
    If the hunger doesn't get me the fever surely will

    Paudie took me up and threw me across his shoulders
    He nursed me every day 'til we reached Amerikay
    Screamin' and shoutin' like two madmen at the wind

    God's curse upon you, Lord John Russell
    May your black hearted soul rot in hell
    There's no love left on earth, God is dead in heaven
    In the dark and deadly days of Black 47

    God's curse upon you, Lord Trevalian
    May your great Queen Victoria rot in hell
    'Til England and its empire answer under heaven
    For the crimes they committed in Black 47

  • SAN PATRICIO BRIGADE Black 47, Music and Lyrics by Larry Kirwan, Video by Charles R. Hale

    5:09

    In 1846, thousands of Irish immigrants joined the US army and were sent to invade Mexico.

    Dubious about why they were fighting a Catholic country, and fed up with mistreatment from their Anglo-Protestant officers, hundreds of Irish deserted and joined forces with Mexico. They were lead by John Riley of Galway, Ireland. They called themselves the St. Patrick's Battalion...the San Patricios.

    Toward the end of the two-year conflict, 50 San Patricios were sentenced to be hanged as traitors. Many Americans regard these men as traitors, but Mexicans see them as heroes, honoring them every Sept. 12.

    In 1993, the Irish began their own ceremony to honor the St. Patrick's Battalion in Clifden, Galway, Riley's hometown.

    4:35

    Composer,orchestrated and conducted by Brian Byrne.

    This sequence is taken from some of the more melodic cues that the composer and director drew from. Most of the rest of the score is atonal or just percussion. The score was recorded in Ireland featuring The RTÉ Concert Orchestra with Kenneth Rice on solo violin and Ger Fahey on Pipes and whistles.

    Black '47 is a 2018 Irish period drama film directed by Lance Daly. The screenplay is by PJ Dillon, Pierce Ryan, Eugene O'Brien and Lance Daly, based on the Irish-language short film An Ranger, written and directed by Dillon and Ryan. The film stars Hugo Weaving, James Frecheville, Jim Broadbent, Stephen Rea, Freddie Fox, Barry Keoghan, Moe Dunford, and Sarah Greene. Set in Ireland during the Great Famine, the film follows an Irish Ranger who has been fighting for the British Army abroad, as he abandons his post to reunite with his family. The title is taken from the most devastating year of the famine, 1847, which is referred to as Black '47.

    Black '47 held its world premiere on 2 March 2018 at the Berlin Film Festival, before being released on 7 September 2018 in Ireland by Element Pictures. The film received generally positive reviews from a number of critics, and was a box-office success in Ireland.
