You Stand Accused Of Murder (Men Of 81)
mists of time will honour this, the year of 81
ten brave gallant Irishmen, a hunger-strike begun,
might as well have shot them like the men of Easter week,
knew they wouldnt bend their knee, you knew they wouldn't break
stand accused of murder their blood is on your hands,
Francis Hughes, Ray McCreesh, Joe McDonnell, Bobby Sands,
Hurson, Kevin Lynch, Thomas McElwee,
Divine, Patsy OHara and Keiron Doherty.
will never sanctify the reasons why,
prison cells, in lonely hells our hunger-strikers died
me an English man who'd starve until he died,
Irishmen have done it with honour and with pride.
years is far too long the time has come to leave,
butchered and youve plundered, youve murdered and deceived,
we promise we will never give up our human rights
defend the men of 81 in their final lonely fight.
