Admiral William Brown  Wolfe Tones

Admiral William Brown The Wolfetones. Capo on 2
From a c[G]ounty Mayo town came a m[C]an of great ren[G]own
As a sai[D]lor and a soldier was none bo[G]lder
He went to America at an e[C]arly age they s[G]ay
As a cab[D]in boy to sail the wide world o[G]ver
Then ad[D]venture took him south to the [C]Del La Plata mo[G]uth
San [C]Martin was on the route in Ar[D]gentina
So three wha[G]ling ships he bough and Br[C]azil and Spain he fo[G]ught
And fre[D]edom then he so[D7]ught for Arge[G]ntina
[(3)]He had heard of Irish hands in the noble gallant bands
That helped to free the called Argentina
He had heard with great acclaim the Patrickos name and fame
When in 1806 the British came for slaughter
And to this very day in the Argentine they say
The English ran away from Buenos Aries
To the Islands further down and they took them for the crown
''Las Islas Malvinas,Argentina''
Now Admiral William Brown you're a man of courage shown
And in battles won the odds were all against you
But your Irish heart was strong and in memory still lives on
And in Ireland there are some that don't forget you
On St.Patrick's day it's told you had many victories bold
You defeated all invaders thugs and bullies
Then through the Pampas rose and you found a happy home
'Las Islas Malvinas Argentina.
[(4)]We remember William Brown and his land of great renown the invader
of the islands from your country
When in 1833 were by pirates forced to flee
And in Ireland sure we know the story fully
And the people that went too,to the Argentine when new
To escape the English laws and wars and famine
They had proved a loyal crew just like all the Irish do
''Las Islas Malvinas Argintinas''
[(5)]The old colonial days and the cruel English ways
With her thunder plunder we will teach the natives
For the Brits are going to war just like Whitelock did before
With her ships and guns and drums and flags and banners
In the empire days of old when they murdered for the gold
And paraded it around the streets of London
Oh no human rights were given to the natives dead or living
''Las Islas Malivinas Argentina
[(6)]In the Argentine he died Father Fahey by his side
'57 was the year his country mourned him
A hero of the nation he's remembered with elation
Throughout the world where freedom still abounds
And the southern cross take note where bold Willie Bulfin wrote
The Irish still support you Argentina
With the empire tumbling down let no Paddies back the crown
''Las Islas Malvinas Argentina
