FIVE MEN WENT OUT TOGETHER. Irish, Air (3/4 time). E Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB.

Five men went together (x2)
Four men, three men, two men, one man
And the mower went to mow the meadow.

Mother ru a ru a ru a
Mother ru a ready
With a stick upon her back
And another in her hand
Saying Good morrow to you kindly madam.
