I am sure this has come up before but after a good bit of searching through the database and various threads I still can't find the lyrics to this song. I have some of the lyrics, but I'm pretty sure they're not complete. The full thing would be most gratefully appreciated.

The chorus is:

In Crossmaglen the fire burns true
The patriotic flame will never die
And when you hear that battlecry
It will be those fighting men from Crossmaglen

I don't have the full lyrics as I said but if this isn't enough to jog anyone's memory I'll post up the rest of what I remember.

I've heard from friends that this is a really well known song (but not well enough that any of them could swear to be sure of the lyrics) and I can only recall hearing it a couple of times myself, but if as I suspect may be the case, this is really well known and I appear to be a bit thick, please forgive my ignorance.

I post the lyrics of this one purely in the interests of information provision. I have no sympathy with them and would post similar lyrics from the loyalist perspective for the same reason.

THE FIGHTING MEN OF CROSSMAGLEN

I'll sing a song, of the bravest men,
That famous fighting unit from Armagh,
They are the men, of Crossmaglen,
Among the bravest Ireland's ever saw- where?

In Crossmaglen, the fire burns true,
The patriotic flame will never die,
And when you hear the battlecry,
It will be the fighting men of Crossmaglen

At night you'll hear, the SOMETHING's roar,
Armalites are heard across the land,
The IRA, their spirits soar,
They know the reckoning has come to hand - where?

In Crossmaglen, the fire burns true...

That British scum, they do fear,
That ne'er again they'll see their cursed shore - why?
Because they know, that they'll pay dear,
The boys will even Ireland's bloody score - where?

In Crossmaglen, the fire burns true...

(I'll listen to the recording again and see if I can make out the missing word).

It was easy enough to find with a Google search.

They'll not give up untill they're free
Till Ireland is out of Britain's hands
They'll never rest untill they see
Brittannia's rule driven from our land (tiocfaidh ar la)

There a Traveller's song about dodgy horse-dealing aclled, 'I bought a Mare at Derry Fair' with the wonderful line:
"Twas the dealermen of Crossmaglen put the whisky in my tea".
