If you were to type robert emmett into the very useful "Digitrad and Forum Search" facility prominently displayed on the main Forum page, you would get a small list of links to entries in the Database and past discussion threads, one of which would take you to  Bold Robert Emmett

Does anybody know any more verse to this Irish song?
I know the song to be sung to the tune of Streets of Laredo.
Any info gladly appreciated.

The battle was over. The boys were defeated,
Old Ireland surrounded by sorrow and gloom.
We were defeated and shamefully treated
And I Robert Emmett lie waiting my doom.

Hung drawn and quartered sure that is my sentence
But soon I will show them no coward am I.
My crime was a love of the land I was born in.
A hero I've lived and a hero I'll die.

So bold Robert Emmett, the darling of Ireland,
Bold Robert Emmett will die with a smile.
Farewell, companions, both loyal and daring.
I lay down my life for the emerald isle.

Below are the lyrics that I downloaded after searching “lyrics for bold Robert Emmet “
Different artists use varied verses and some sing the last verse after two verses (like a chorus)… Good luck ?? with this great song!

The struggle is over, the boys are defeated
Old Ireland's surrounded with sadness and gloom
We were defeated and shamefuIIy treated
And I, Robert Emmet, awaiting my doom

Hung, drawn and quartered, sure that was my sentence
But soon I will show them no coward am I
My crime is the love of the land I was born in
A hero I lived and a hero I'll die

The barque lay at anchor awaiting to bring me
Over the billows to the land of the free
But I must see my sweetheart for I know she will cheer me
And with her I will sail far over the sea

But I was arrested and cast into prison
Tried as a traitor, a rebel, a spy
But no man can call me a knave or a coward
A hero I lived and a hero I'll die

Hark! the bell's A’tolling, I well know its meaning
My poor heart tells me it is my death knell
In come the clergy, the warder is leading
I have no friends here to bid me farewell

Goodbye, old Ireland, my parents and sweetheart
Companions in arms to forget you must try
I am proud of the honour, it was only my duty
A hero I lived and a hero I'll die

Bold Robert Emmet, the darling of Ireland
Bold Robert Emmet will die with a smile
Farewell companions both loyal and daring
I'll lay down my life for the Emerald Isle
