For it's here I am an Orangeman, just come across the sea
For singing and for dancing, I hope that I'll please thee,
I can sing and dance with any man, as I did in days of yore.
And its on the twelfth I long to wear the Sash My Father wore.
It is old but it is beautiful and it's colours they are fine.
It was worn at Derry, Aughrim, Enniskillen and the Boyne.
My Father wore it as a youth in the bygone days of yore
And its on the twelfth I long to wear, The Sash My Father wore.
For it's now I'm going to leave you, good luck to you I'll say,
And when I'm on the ocean deep, I hope for me you"ll pray
I'm going to my native land, to a place they call Dromore.
Where on the twelfth I long to wear the Sash My father wore.
Whenever I come back again my brethren here to see,
I hope to find old Orange style, they will always welcome me.
My favorite tune's 'Boyne Water'. but to please me more and more,
And make my Orange Heart full glad with the Sash My Father wore.
