Come all you loyal heroes come listen unto me
Till I sing yous a verse or two of my love’s destiny
For the lad that I love so dearly from my heart was forced to go
And oh how I loved him dearly he’s my charming buachaill roe

He was a youth undaunted his age being twenty three
And for to serve this nation his equal never could be
With two bright eyes and rosy cheeks his skin as white as snow
And oh how I loved him dearly he’s my charming buachaill roe

He was a youth undaunted of courage and noble blood
And for the cause of Ireland in the battlefield he stood
He never yet retreated though his wounds were deep and sore
And oh how I loved him dearly he’s my charming buachaill roe

The gentle thrush forsakes the bush the blackbird too must go
With the rise of consternation bewails my buachaill roe.
The gentle thrush forsakes the bush the blackbird too must go
And oh how I loved him dearly he’s my charming buachaill roe.

Lough Erne now is clouded with a heavy mist of rain
And so is Enniskillen where my true love does remain
I’ll build my truelove a castle on the banks of Lough Erne’s shore
And I’ll plant the walks with laurels for my charming buachaill roe
