Ken McGee

[Em] As the sun rises high

in the eastern sky

and[Am] settles down in the west

[D] Men hungering for freedom

are [Em] dying in Long Kesh

 

[Em] So they told the Iron Maiden

[Am]Maggie I’ll tell  ya true,

We’ll [D] die before

We suffer one more

[Em] indignity from you

 

[Em] We won’t wear

Your prison clothes

[Am]Like thugs or murderers here

We D] wait in our cells in blankets,

To cause the [Em] whole dammed world to hear,

 

[Em] Of confessions gained by torture,

Children[Am] murdered in the streets

Like a[D]  Phoenix

The Irish spirit rises

[Em]]We’ll not know defeat.

 

Denied a trial by jury

Arrested without cause

You’re thin façade of civility

Has shown so many flaws

 

Maggie, the whole worlds

Watchin’ now

How you run the Maze.

May the dying face of

Bobby Sands

Haunt you all your days

 

[Em] As the sun rises high

in the eastern sky

and[Am] settles down in the west

[D] Men hungering for freedom

are [Em] dying in Long Kesh
