Ballad Of Bobby Sands

Gerry O'Glacain
Language: English



Oh Irishmen remember well
Our heroes who in action fell
And those who died in the prison cell
Like Bobby Sands from Belfast

An Irish soldier to the last
A criminal he would not be classed
And so began a long day fast
Of Bobby Sands from Belfast

So proud Britania hide your face
Throughout the world you are disgraced
How many more must take the place
Of Bobby Sands from Belfast

The gallant Hughes from Derry´s hills
He fought against the time and his will
O´Hara and McCreesh you´ve killed
Like Bobby Sands from Belfast

And the world will never understand
Why you deny their just demands
A lingering death with your heartless blends
Or those like Sands from Belfast

Now Brittania, all the world must know
how England treats a helpless man
Your British justice, it is laid low
Like Bobby Sands from Belfast

So proud Britania hide your face
Throughout the world you are disgraced
How many more must take the place
Of Bobby Sands from Belfast
