 Anne Devlin, Irish song lyrics and guitar chords, Pete St. John This is my favorite Pete St. John Song. It's very hard to imagine what Anne Devlin went through in solitary confinement for three years,,,,,,and still she held firm and did not betray Robert Emmitt ,
The guitar chords were kindly provided by Marc Fahrbach, more information on Anne Devlin below. The video is Mary Black
 
 
In[G] Dublin[C] town they[G] sing of a brave Wicklow [D7]woman
Of her[G] troubles[C] and her[G] times in cruel Kil[Am7]mainham[D7] Jail
All the [G]way from [C]Butterfield[G] Lane Anne[C] Devlin was her[G] name
A friend to[Am] Robert Emmett she[D] served his[D7] cause in [G]vain
 
Chorus:
[G]Lo[C] lie[G] lo Liffey keep on [D7]flowin'
And it's [G]lo[C] lie[G] lo[D7] Anne your[D] legend's[G] growin'
 
Not torture or the bribe could sway Anne Devlin's purpose
Three years of lonely hell in solitary shame
How proud Emmett met his fate on the scaffold of the tyrant
She saw her family passin' like poor lilies in the storm
 
Chorus
 
In 1851 Anne Devlin met her maker
But her story's with us still as a lesson for the wise
Not poverty or fear can kill the heart of freedom
Anne Devlin was a servant to the spirit of our land
 
Chorus
