Whistle out the marching tune And hurrah, me boys, for freedom, 'tis the rising of the moon 'Tis the rising of the moon, 'tis the rising of the moon And hurrah, me boys, for freedom, 'tis the rising of the moon https://twitter.com/IrishRootsCafe https://www.facebook.com/IrishSong http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/MichaelCOLaughlin
