Subject: Lyr Add: CONNOLLY DIES IN THE MORNING (D Behan)
Another Dominic Behan song:


CONNOLLY DIES IN THE MORNING


Is there no one near to me
To say he'll stay and hear to me
As they take my Jim Connolly
To lay down his life in the morning

Weeping, wailing wearily,
Sorrow sadly dear to me
As they take my Jim Connolly
To lay down his life in the morning

For me he made a nation be
For me he faced the enemy
For me my brave Jim Connolly
Will lay down his life in the morning.
