I have been searching for the lyrics to this song for a while now. I have found many other songs with the same name such as Johnny Cash. It isn't the same song. I have really enjoyed this song and have shared it with everyone, but they want the lyrics and unfortunately I do not have them. I would appreciate any help that anyone could offer me in finding the lyrics. Thank you in advance.

Can you tell us anything more about the plot or character of the song, or any other lyrics? I know a song with that phrase in it, by Ruth Pelham --- click here.
Actually, I see now that it's "cried, cried, cried, cried" so probably not what you are looking for.
But give us a few more hints.
Thanks
Blessings,
Barbara

The song is on The Alias Band's album! If no one can find the lyrics online, I'll post them tomorrow.

I found the chorus:

you could cry cry cry,
cry a see of tears
cry cry cry for 800 years
you could cry till your eyes run dry
cry till you are blind
but crying would change no present thing
there's no use in cry

CRY, CRY, CRY
(Written by Ron Kavana)

On the road from Bandon to Macroom,
I stopped at Beal na mBlath,
Where that black day in '22,
They shot Mick Collins down,
For freedom, to achieve greater freedom,
His hopes that might have been,
If the Big Fella had only lived,
To realise his dream.

CHORUS: You could cry, cry, cry,
Cry a sea of tears,
Cry, cry, cry, for eight hundred years,
You could cry till your eyes go dry,
Cry till you go blind,
But crying won't change a blessed thing,
There's no use in cry...

As I walked up past Kilmainham Jail,
And I thought of what went down,
When they tied James Connolly to a chair,
Shot a dying man to the ground,
It's where they tortured Robert Emmet,
Wolfe Tone took his last breath,
Joe Plunkett he was married there,
And the same, they put our poet to death.

We're an awful lot for crying,
Over things that are long gone,
Forget about "Tiochfaidh ar la",
Our day is here and now,
We must face it with bold courage,
No uncertainty or fear,
Take our place among the nations,
Let our martyrs rest in peace/tears?

Transcribed from "1798-1998 Irish songs of rebellion, resistance and reconciliation" by the Alias Acoustic Band, Proper Records, 1998.
"Tiochfaidh ar la" = "our day will come" (pronounced something like "chocky ar la"!)

There was a group once composed of Lucy Kaplansky, Dar Williams and
Richard Shindell who called them selves Cry Cry Cry. I do not know if they sang a song by that name. I see you have gotten the lyrics you were looking for. But aI see there is a man named Wolf Tone in the song and I wonder now about the band named the Wolf Tones and how they got thier name. Scottish aren't they?

There is another thread called Lyr Req: Cry, Cry, Cry which was started by someone looking for Ron Kavana's song. The lyrics were never posted, but the thread contains some useful information about the song and the album it came from.

It also contains lyrics to several unrelated songs with the same title.

Thanks from me for the transcription. I was the guy who had asked in the other thread. My own attempt at the transcription stopped at 'Beal na mBlath' right in the second line. I now know why.

The Wolfe Tones are Irish. They took their name from an Irish patriot named Theobald Wolfe Tone. He was a leader in the rebellion of 1798.

This is a good song.....would like to find it on cd.
