Green Grassy Slopes of the Boyne (V)

Some folk sing of the Mountains and Valleys,
Where the wild flowers abundantly grow
And some of the foam crested billows
That surge in the waters below;
But I'm going to sing of a river
And I hope in the chorus you'll join,
Of the deeds that were done by King William,
On the green grassy slopes of the Boyne.
#CHORUS#

On the green grassy slopes of the Boyne,
Where the Orangemen with William did join,
And fought for our glorious deliv'rance
On the green grassy Slopes of the Boyne
On the banks of that beautiful river,
There the bones of our forefathers lie,
Awaiting the sound of the trumpet
To call them to glory on high.
In our hearts we will cherish their memories,
And we all like true Brethren will join.
And praise God for sending us King William,
To the green Grassy slopes of the Boyne

On the banks of that beautiful river
Where the bones of our forefathers lie,
Awaiting the sound of the trumpet
That call them to glory on high;
In our hearts we will cherish their memories
And in one common brotherhood join
and praise God who sent us Knig William,
To the green grassy slopes of the Boyne.
#CHORUS#

And if ever we're called to the service
And i know like true brethren you'll join
and fight like our fathers before us
On the green grassy slopes of the Boyne.
Orangemen remember King William
And you fathers who with him did join
And fought for our glorious deliverance
On the green grassy slopes of the Boyne.
#CHORUS#

Orangemen will be loyal and steady,
For no matter what'er may betide,
We will still mind our war-cry "No Surrender!"
So long as we've God on our side,
And if ever our service is needed.
Then we all like true Brethren will join,
And fight, like valliant King William,
On the green grassy slopes of the Boyne
#CHORUS#
