Nick Reynolds/Bob Shane/John Stewart

Chorus:
Oh, we'll stay awhile to fight awhile. We'll never want to leave ya.
Oh, we'll stay awhile to fight awhile 'til we come back to see ya.

As we were walkin' down to Wales one day we chanced upon young Tommy Clancy
And we called to him, "Could you go a drink?" Said he boys, "That's my fancy!"

(Chorus)

Oh, we drank to Tommy and he did the same. We drank to all his hellish brothers
And we drank to home and to girls we've know and we had one for our mothers.

(Chorus)

And then we sang those songs we sang before. We sang that we would drink forever.
When the last drops passed our lips that day, we sang this song together.

(Chorus)
