British Justice (Shoot To Kill Policy)

J. McGinley 

 

In the wee hours of the morning three Strabane lads they did die,

Fighting for their homeland,Freedom! was their cry.

Two of them were brothers David and Michael Devine

Along with Charles Breslin, Oh Lord to them be kind.

 

[chorus]

What they got was British justice its plain for all to see

Orders straight from Thatcher, Shoot To Kill thei policy.

 

All three of them were members of the West Tyrone Brigade

And they died that morning with their rifles and grenades.

They had no chance to use them on that accursed day,

For undercover soldiers blasted their young lives away.

 

Oh what grief for these two families their hearts so filled with pain,

To see their sons go out that night and not return again.

For the cause that wee did cherish, their sad parting had to be,

They died for their homeland and that we all might be free.

 

So farewell to you David, farewell dear Charlie too,

And Michael we have lost you at the age of 22.

Oh you were such a champion down in the snooker hall,

But you played your last frame when you answered Irelands call.

 

There is a lovely graveyard not far from their homes,

And thats the final resting place for these lads from West Tyrone

They have gone to join their comrades; Harvey, Devlin, McGlynn and Tone.

May God be with you always the lads from West Tyrone.
