Christy Moore's tribute


From TAL Fanzine - Issue 25 - Article 9

BOBBY SANDS SONG- The People’s Own MP


How many more must die now? How many must we lose? Before the island people, their own destiny can choose, From the immortal Robert Emmett to Bobby Sands MP, Who was given 30,000 votes while in captivity,

No more he’ll hear the lark’s sweet notes upon the Ulster air, Nor gaze upon the snowflake pure to calm his deep despair, Before he went on Hunger Strike young Bobby did compose, ‘The Rhythm of Time’, The Reaping Wind’ and ‘The Sleeping Hordes’,

He was a poet and a soldier and he died courageously, And we gave him 30,000 votes while in captivity,

Thomas Ashe gave everything in 1917, The Lord mayor of Cork Mac Swinney died his freedom to obtain, Never a one of all our dead died more courageously, Than young Bobby Sands of Twinbrook, The People’s own MP,

He was a poet and a soldier and he died courageously,
And they gave him 30,000 votes while in captivity.
