The Ballad of Henry Place
From out of the GPO, The Rebels, they made their retreat, Up Sackville Street they did go, Escaping up Henry Street, Moving at a speedy pace, With gunfire filling the air, They turned into Henry Place, Right into the gunmans glare, Panic & confussion, Filled their hearts with dread, Smashing down doors with their rifles, To avoid joining the ranks of the dead, Connolly is carried through a window that is open, And hoisted up the wooden stairs, Winifred Carney is praying & hoping, For Connolly, for whom she cares, The Rebels try to avoid defeat, As they pass the foot of Moore Lane, Advancing into the midst of Moore Street, The Culmination of the Patriot Game.
