The Armagh Sniper
In South Armagh there is a man
who has a long ranged gun
He said "I`ll show them army boys there`s nowhere
they can run"
He was the South Armagh sniper
He`d pick a spot and wait the whole day through
Until a Brit patrol came into view
The Armagh sniper he never missed his mark
He was lethal in the daytime and deadly in the dark
If he gets you in his sights you`d better say your
So British troops go home or else beware.
Soon his reputation spread through Ulster like wildfire
The list of British casualties just kept on getting

Now in London and in Dublin they pretend to speak

But the South Armagh sniper
He`s heard their lies and double talk before
He won`t be fooled or cheated any more
The Armagh sniper he hasn`t gone away
His rifles always loaded he`s just waiting for the
So if the British forces should break their word
The sniper will go back to work again.
