THE IRISH BRIGADE THE SAM SONG LYRICS

Well I have been a Provo now for fifteen years or more

Of armalites and mortar bombs I thought I knew the score

Now we have a weapon we've never used before

The Brits are looking worried, and they're going to worry more

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA (Ooh, ah, up the 'RA! Ooh ah up the 'RA!)

SAM missiles in the sky...


Well I started out with petrol bombs and throwing bricks and stones

There were a hundred more lads like me I never was alone

Soon I learned that bricks and stones won't drive the Brits away

It wasn't very long before (who did I join?) I joined the IRA

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA (Ooh, ah, up the 'RA! Ooh ah up the 'RA!)

SAM missiles in the sky...


Then there came internment in the year of '71

The Brits thought we were beaten that we were on the run

On that early august morning they kicked in our back door

But for every man they took away (how many did they miss?) they missed a hundred more

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA (Ooh, ah, up the 'RA! Ooh ah up the 'RA!)

SAM missiles in the sky...


I spent eight years in the cages had time to think and plan

Although they locked away a boy I walked out a man

There's only one thing that I learned while in a cell I lay

The Brits will never leave us (until when?) until they're blown away

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA (Ooh, ah, up the 'RA! Ooh ah up the 'RA!)

SAM missiles in the sky...


All through the days of hunger strike I watched my comrades die

And in the streets of Belfast you could hear the women cry

I can't forget the massacre that Friday at Loughgall

I salute my fallen comrades as, I watch the choppers fall

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA (Ooh, ah, up the 'RA! Ooh ah up the 'RA!)

SAM missiles in the sky...
