Featuring The Auld Triangle (Dicky Shannon)

lyrics

My mother was an honest girl, from Dublin she did hale
She never spoke of troubled times and the things she saw in jail
A general climbed down from his horse, a man whom she would meet
Her crime was throwing leaflets from a pillar on O'Connell Street

One cry for freedom
One for human rights
One cry for freedom
One in the cold of night

She was told to sign a declaration and he would let her go
If she never spoke of freedom, her answer would be no
She served her time in Mountjoy, her principles she held dear
And witnessed the atrocities becoming all too clear

One cry for freedom
One for human rights
One cry for freedom
One in the cold of night

A young girl's fight for decency
Her story can relate
To the power, greed and injustice
The common human traits

One cry for freedom (and the auld triangle)
One for human rights (went jingle-jangle)
One cry for freedom (alll along the banks)
One in the cold of night (of the Royal Canal)

And the auld triangle went jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal

And the auld triangle went jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal

And the auld triangle went jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal
