Philippa Lyr Req: Recruiting Sergeant (33) Recruiting Sergeant 26 Nov 98

Here's the last verse. Am seeking the rest and the 19th c. song that this version of around 1916 may be based on. And does An Gabhar Bán (recorded by Clannad) go to the same air? (Somebody asked me if it did.)

Come wind or rain or hail or snow
We’re not going out to Flanders oh
When there’s fighting in Dublin to be done
Let the sergeants and commanders go.
Let Englishmen for England fight
It's just about time they started oh
And I wished them all a very good night
And there and then we parted oh.
