Ken McGee. This is a very tragic event that took place in Ballymena Co. Antrim Northern Ireland involving the killing of a fifteen year old boy .When Ken McGee sent me this song that he wrote, I was very apprehensive about placing it here, I thought it was too close in time to the event. but after reading the lyrics a hundred times , I can see that there is no bitterness in the song, no hatred, only love. The video below is of Ken McGee singing Micky Moo.

Mickey-bo 

[Am]Where did you[G] go,

[D]Mickey-bo, Mickey-bo?

[Am]Where did you [G]go

[D]Our darlin’ Mickey?

[Am]The hatred and the[G] lies

[D]Have taken you from our side

[Am}And now Antrim [G]cries

[D]Darlin’ Mickey 

He lived but 15 years

And his mother, thru her tears

Tells of a boy who lived  the peace

That Ireland’s needin’

But some who would not be still

They beat that boy until

The life was gone from him

Darlin’ Mickey 

Let’s build a garden of Peace

Wherein hatred can cease

And each forgives the wrongs

Of the other

An eye for eye

Only makes our island blind

And blinded by their tears

Lie the mothers 

Where did you go

Mickey-bo, Mickey-bo?

Where did you go,

Darlin’ Mickey?

The hatred and the lies

Have taken you from our side

And now Antrim cries

Darlin’ Mickey
