Battering Ram - Take it down from the mast

Take it Down from the Mast is an Irish Republican song written by Dominic Behan during the 1950s. Although it officially refers to the period of the Irish Civil War (1922-23), it was written as a direct attack on those who acknowledged the Government of Ireland at the time of its writing.
The flag in question is the Irish tricolour, which the song tells supporters of the Anglo-Irish Treaty and the Irish Free State to take down, as it is the flag of the Irish Republic, which they claim the "Free Staters" betrayed. The third verse references specific executions by firing squad during the Civil War. Among those named are Rory O'Connor, Liam Mellows, Richard Barrett and Joe McKelvey.
At the time, the Anti-Treaty IRA regarded their Civil War opponents as traitors and therefore unworthy to use the Irish tricolour.
The Republic of today are still unworthy to use the Irish tricolour.

Take It Down From The Mast lyrics

Battering Rams Version 

You have murdered our brave Liam and Rory
You butchered young Richard and Joe
Your hands with their blood are still gory
Fulfilling the work of the foe

Chorus:
Take it down from the mast Irish traitors
It's the flag we Republicans claim
It can never belong to Free-Staters
For you've brought on it nothing but shame

Then leave it to those who are willing
To uphold it in war and in peace
To the men who intend to do killing
Until England's tyranny cease

Chorus

But we stand with Enright and Larkin
By Daly and Sullivan bold
And we'll break down the English connections
And we'll win back the nation you sold

Chorus

You sold out the six counties for your freedom
Though we gave you McCracken and Tone
And brave Ulstermen have fought for you in Dublin
Now you watch as we fight on alone

Chorus

And up in Ulster we're fighting on for freedom
For our people they yearn to be free
You executed those men who fought for us
With a handgun from over the sea

Chorus
Chorus
