IRELAND UNFREE (B.Warfield)

1

 In a dimly lit room by a smouldering fire 

Sat an old man so lonely so sad & so tired

Once he struggled for freedom now he struggles to live

With his few small possessions &  his past to relive

CHORUS

There's a faded old picture on the wall all alone

A dusty old picture the pride of his home

With a harp & a shamrock & these words underneath

Ireland unfree shall never be at peace

2

And it's to Easter week & his thoughts wander back

To those leaders of men sure no courage did lack

And now he's just left with his memories of old

For his name nor his stories shall ever be told

CHORUS

3

And his thoughts wander back to the days of his prime

For it seems now there's nothing goes faster than time

To his comrades of old & he remembers the day

When he marched behind Pearse & the bold I.R.A

CHORUS

4

Then he gazed at that picture & he gave a sad smile

For each wrinkle & line told the struggle of time

And he gazed once again & his eyes filled with tears

For the man in that picture was his friend Padraig Pearse

CHORUS
