[Verse 1]

Am G F Dm G Em AmYou may sing and speak about Easter Week and the heroes of Ninety Eight.
Am C Em Dm EsusOf Fenian Men who roamed the glen in victory or de feat.
Am C Em Dm EsusTheir names on history's pages told, their memories will endure,
Am G F Dm Em Dm G AmNot a song was sung of our darling sons, in the Valley of Knockanure.
[Verse 2]
Am G F Dm G Em AmThere was Lyons and Walsh and the Dalton boy, They were young and in their prime.
Am C Em Dm EsusThey rambled to a lonely spot where the Black and Tans did hide.
Am C Em Dm EsusThe Republic bold they did uphold, Tho' outlawed on the moor
Am G F Dm Em Dm G AmAnd side by side they fought and died In the Valley of Knockanure.
[Verse 3]
Am G F Dm G Em AmIt was on a neighbouring hillside We listened in hushed dismay.
Am C Em Dm EsusIn every house, in every town, a young girl knelt to pray.
Am C Em Dm EsusThey're closing in around them now, with rifle fire so sure,
Am G F Dm Em Dm G AmAnd Lyons is dead and young Dalton's down in the Valley of Knockanure.
[Verse 4]
Am G F Dm G Em AmBut ere the guns could seal his fate, young Walsh had spoken thro'
Am C Em Dm EsusWith a prayer to God he spurned the sod, As against the hill he flew
Am C Em Dm EsusThe bullets tore his flesh in two, Yet he cried with voice so sure,
Am G F Dm Em Dm G Am"Revenge I'll get for my comrade's death, in the Valley of Knockanure.
[Verse 5]
Am G F Dm G Em AmThe summer sun is sinking low behind the field and lea.
Am C Em Dm EsusThe pale moonlight is shining bright far off beyond Tralee.
Am C Em Dm EsusThe dismal stars and the clouds afar are darkening o'er the moor,
Am G F Dm Em Dm G AmAnd the banshee cried when young Dalton died, In the Valley of Knockanure.
