We're on the one road, sharin' the one load,
We're on the road to God knows where;
We're on the one road, maybe the wrong road,
We're together now, who cares?
North men, South men, comrades all,
To Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Donegal;
We're on the one road, marchin' along,
Singin' a soldier's song.

Ah! Though we've had our troubles now and then,
Now is the time to make them up again;
Sure, aren't we all Irish anyhow,
Let's step together just for old time sake.

We're on the one road, sharin' the one load,
We're on the road to God knows where;
We're on the one road, maybe the wrong road,
We're together now, who cares?
North men, South men, comrades all,
To Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Donegal;
We're on the one road, marchin' along,
Singin' a soldier's song.

Ah! Tinker, tailor, everybody's son,
Butcher, baker shoulderin' his gun;
Rich man, poor man, every man in line,
All together just for Auld Lang Syne.

We're on the one road, sharin' the one load,
We're on the road to God knows where;
We're on the one road, maybe the wrong road,
We're together now, who cares?
North men, South men, comrades all,
To Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Donegal;
We're on the one road, marchin' along,
Singin' a soldier's song.

Ah! Night is darkest just before the dawn,
From dissension Ireland is reborn;
Sure has a way to unite all Ireland,
And make our land a nation once again.

We're on the one road, sharin' the one load,
We're on the road to God knows where;
We're on the one road, maybe the wrong road,
We're together now, who cares?
North men, South men, comrades all,
To Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Donegal;
We're on the one road, marchin' along,
Singin' a soldier's song.

We're on the one road, sharin' the one load,
We're on the road to God knows where;
We're on the one road, maybe the wrong road,
We're together now, who cares?
North men, South men, comrades all,
To Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Donegal;
We're on the one road, marchin' along,
Singin' a soldier's song.
