I'm looking for lyrics for Wolfe Tones' songs "Children of fear" ("People of blight, you have fought for the right"..) and "Ireland over all" ("It's Ireland first and Ireland last and Ireland over all") from their LP "Till Ireland a nation". Hope you'll help me.

Here's the "Women of Ireland.” I had lyrics to all songs of "Profile" with my CD, but I haven't the same to "Till Ireland a nation.”


Women, Women of Ireland your glory's in the shade
Your dreams they have gone and decayed
The deeds you have done they all went unsung
By no Bard or no one
For without you there is nothing
Except love song in the wind
And all of your struggles and despair
And there were castles in the air

Shout it from every mountain
From every mountain on high
And the four winds will sigh for Ireland
Ireland's your glory
And your monuments built on your sorrow and pain
For if ever the seas and the oceans run dry
Tears of struggles and of joy
And all of your sadness and your pain
Would fill the oceans up again

Daughters, Daughters of Erin to the Cuman na mBan
Your dream was to see Ireland free through agrarian struggles
Were determined to win and from there to begin
There you were dressed for rebellion
But your beauty could not hide
Your sorrow and suffering and despair
And there were castles in the air


Women, Women of courage, you suffered in your silence
You kept Ireland's spirit alive you were imprisoned
Your people enchained but you never gave in
In troubled days of old Ireland, you were the brave ones who fought
Through oppression and famine and despair
And there were castles in the air

(Dm)People of (C)plight, you have (Dm)fought for the (C)right
To (Dm)rid off your (C)country's in(Dm)justice
In a (Gm)cold prison (C)cell you (Gm)serve out your (C)hell
Not (Gm)knowing the (C)sweet taste of (Dm)freedom.
But tomorrow will (C)come with the (F)break of the (Dm)dawn
And winter will (C)change into (Dm)spring
(Dm)Then we can (C)look for the (F)new brighter (Dm)things
When our hopes and our (C)dreams will come (Dm)true.

T'was not long ago in our march you did show
Those old and bad ways must be changing
But you met with ill fate those people of hate
With their sticks and their stones they were raging.
But the cold winds of change will come with the morn
And the wind will change to a storm
And if the trees don't bend in the breeze
Then they surely must bend in the storm.

Word for a word and sword for a sword
Is the cruel way that life has been showing
In a city of hate it is never too late
To see friendship and love start to growing.
But the damage is done to Irelands sons
And the flower won't grow on a stone
And blossoms won't grow on the streets of our land
To the right seeds of love they are sown

Children of fear the time it is near
That our land had a change of good fortune
For the struggle and fight has gone through the night
And has been there for many ??? the long year
It is not for the want or the courage you've shown
And our ship is not lost to the seas
And to the world let our struggles be known
Till our prisoners of hate are set free.

That is from

It is not a LYRIC ADD at this point.
