“The Auld Triangle”

Videos by American Songwriter


“Oh, the wind was sighing
And the day was dying
As the lag lay crying
In his prison cell
And that auld triangle went jingle-jangle,
All along the banks of the royal canal.

In the women’s prison,
There are seventy women
And I wish it was with them,
That I did dwell
Then that auld triangle could go jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the royal canal.”

Written by Dominic Behan. Covered by the Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, and many more.
