Wearing Of The Green
The Complete Decca Masters (Plus), 3 minutes
Oh, paddy dear and did you hear
The news that's going 'round
The shamrock is forbid by law
To grow on Irish ground
Saint Patrick's name no more you'll hear
His colors can't be seen
They've gone and passed a law against
The wearing of the green
Sure I looked to neighbor Tandy
And he took me by the hand
And he said how's dear old Ireland
And how does she stand?
It's a most distressful country
That ever you have seen
They're hanging men and woman
For the wearing of the green
Repeat first two verses
Men and women,
For the wearing of the green.
