Kieran's Song Lyrics Guitar Chords, Written by Gerry O'Glacain from The Irish Brigade. The song is about Kieran Doherty from Belfast who died on hunger strike in August 1981 after 73 days age 25. Kieran was elected to the Irish parliament while still in prison in Long Kesh.

[G]He was born in [G7]Belfast in [C]Andersons[Am]town
Brought [D]on without fear or re[C]spect for the [G]crown
[G]His heroes were [G7]rebels, they were [C]living in[Am] pain
And [D7]soon he was part of the [G]Belfast Bri[Em]gade


God [D7keep you Kieran we [G]pray every [Em]night
And [G]bless for the [Em]young men who [Am]keep on your [Am]fight
When[G] England is vanished uni[C]ted we'll [Am]be
Your [D7]name we remember when [G]Ireland is free


The priest gave elections for people's just choice
But the cold-hearted persons would not leap their voice
Those luckies in Dublin they are forever shamed
By letting to kill you they too shared the pain

 

God keep you Kieran we pray every night
And bless for the young men who keep on your fight
When England is vanished united we'll be
Your name we remember when Ireland is free


The hunger strike is over, but the struggle goes on
To join Ireland's martyrs ten brave men have gone
Don't be disheartened, don't weep for the lost
They do not give! up or accept England's laws
