Make way for the Molly Maguires
They’re drinkers, they’re liars, but they’re men
Make way for the Molly Maguires
You’ll never see the likes of them again

Down the mines no sunlight shines
Those pits they’re black as hell
In mud and slime they do their time
It’s Paddy’s prison cell
And they’ll curse the day they travelled far
And drowned their tears with a jar

Backs will break and muscles ache
Down there there’s no time to dream
Of fields and farms, of women’s arms
Just dig that bloody seam
But they’ll break their bodies underground
Who’ll dare to push them around
