97th Regimental String Band – The Minstrel Boy Lyrics

Artist: 97th Regimental String Band
Song: The Minstrel Boy

The minstrel boy to the war is gone
In the ranks of dead you will find him
His father’s sword he hath girded on
And his wild harp slung behind him

“Land of song,” said the warrior bard
“Though all the world betrays thee
“One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard
“One faithful harp shall praise thee”

The minstrel fell but the foeman’s chain
Could not bring that proud soul under
The harp he loved ne’er spoke again
For he tore its chords asunder

And said “No chain shall sully thee
“Thou soul of love and bravery
“Thy songs were meant for the proud and free
“They shall never sound in slavery”

Thе minstrel boy shall return again
When wе hear the news we will cheer it
The minstrel boy shall return again
Torn perhaps in body, not in spirit

And then may he play his harp indeed
In a world as heaven has intended
When all the works of war shall cease
And every battle must be ended
