Gibraltar Three
It was once
said to me, and has
been voiced by
many - that the only
difference between the
Scots and the Irish
is that the Scots stopped
fighting.

My response to my Irish
friends is that we
stopped fighting for
good reason.
After putting OUR king
on THEIR throne, WE
thought WE had won !

Sadly the Scots have now
spent four centuries
wondering what
happened ??

Perhaps NOW is the
time to peacefully right
the wrongs of
the past.
In the words
of Burns, as he
wrote from the heart.

Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled,
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to victorie.

Now's the day, and now's the hour;
See the front o' battle lour;
See approach proud Edward's power,
Chains and slaverie.

Wha would be a traitor-knave?
Wha can fill a coward's grave?
Wha sae base as be a Slave?
Let him turn and flie:

Wha for Scotland's king and law,
Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
Free-man stand, or free-man fa',
Let him follow me.

By Oppression's woes and pains!
By your Sons in servile chains!
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be free!

Lay the proud Usurpers low!
Tyrants fall in every foe!
Liberty's in every blow!
Let us Do - or Die!!
!

Choose your destiny.

Sad are three homes in Belfast now
All Ireland she shares their sorrow
Mairead Farrel, Sean Savage and Daniel McCann
They died on the streets of Gibraltar

They Flew out of Belfast With an ambitious plan
To continue the struggle To free Ireland
Mairead Farrel, Sean Savage and Daniel McCann
They died on the streets of Gibraltar

Sad are three homes in Belfast now
All Ireland she shares their sorrow
As they walked in the sun the Brits drew their guns
And blood stained the streets of  Gibralta

The S.A.S. stood there so proud of their deed
Three more Freedom Fighters lay dead in the street
They'd been given no warning no chance to retreat
For three had to die in Gibraltar

BREAK

And sad are three homes in Belfast now
All Ireland she shares their sorrow
As they walked in the sun the Brits drew their guns
And blood stained the streets of Gibralta

The S.A.S. stood there so proud of their deed
Three more Freedom Fighters lay dead in the street
They'd been given no warning no chance to retreat
For three had to die in Gibralta

And sad are three homes in Belfast now
All Ireland she shares their sorrow
As they walked in the sun the Brits drew their guns
And blood stained the streets of Gibraltar
Sad are three homes in Belfast now
All Ireland she shares their sorrow
Mairead Farrel, Sean Savage and Daniel McCann
They died on the streets of Gibraltar
And blood stained the streets of Gibraltar
