WOLFE TONES


A Soldier's Return Lyrics

I went away to fight a war that small nations might be
free
Got a soldiers guns and uniform to fight the enemy
I was trained to shoot my fellow before he got to me
And I danced with death in the mud and wept
And prayed my home to see.

Chorus:
So come over to me darling girl come here me Molly
dear.
You are as welcome as the flowers in may you're welcome
here to me.
No more I'll fire the musket shot or hear the cannon
roar
I've done my time, now you'll be mine
I'm yours for ever more.

While in the trenches there I thought who starts these
bloody -wars
And thought of these great Irishmen who died on these
strange shores

Then a bomb did burst to the air it trust some shrapnel
fire and blood
I escaped it then shot back at them and lay back in the
mud.

Chorus:

While I was off in foreign lands, fighting other
peoples' wars
Some gallant men were fighting here to free their
native shore
You shot our leaders of 16 saw our city sacked and
burned
Then you sent us in the Black and Tans to greet our
home return.

Chorus:

I don't need your heroes welcome
I don't want your bugle call
No brass band no pipes and drums, no medal badge or
star
But give me what you promised me when first I went to
war
That's freedom for old Ireland and I'll go to fight no
more.
Chorus:
