Wolfe Tones - The Men Behind the Wire lyrics

Download The Men Behind the Wire 320kbps mp3

Armoured cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons
but every man must stand behind
the men behind the wire. (Chorus x2)

In the little streets of Belfast
in the dark of early morn
British soldiers came a running
Wrecking little homes with scorn
Hear the sobs of crying children
Dragging fathers from their bed
Watch the scene as helpless mothers
Watch the blood fall from their heads

Chorus x2

Not for them a judge or jury
Oughtn’t be a crime at all
Being Irish means their guilty
So they’re guilty one and all
‘round the world the truth will echo
Brugha’s men are here again
England’s name again is sullied
In the eyes of honest men

Chorus x2

Proudly march behind our banner
Proudly march behind our men
We will have them free to help us
Build a nation once again
On the people step together
Proudly marching on your way
Never fear or never falter
‘Till the boys come home to stay

Chorus x2
