The Men Behind the Wire Songtext

Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire
Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire

Through the little streets of Belfast
In the dark of early morn
British soldiers came a'running
Wrecking little homes with scorn
Heedless of the crying children
Dragging fathers from their beds
Watch the scenes of helpless mothers
Watch the bullet fall from their head


Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire
Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire

Not for them a judge or jury
Nor indeed a trial at all
Being Irish means you're guilty
So we're guilty one and all
'Round the world the truth will echo
Cromwell's men are here again
England's name again is sullied
In the eyes of honest men

Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire
Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire

Proud we march behind our banner
Firm we'll stand behind our men
We will have them free to help us
Build a nation once again
Arm the people; step together!
Proudly marching on your way
Never fear, and never falter
'Till the boys come home to stay

Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire
Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire

Through the little streets of Belfast
In the dark of early morn
British soldiers came a'running
Wrecking little homes with scorn
Heedless of the crying children
Dragging fathers from their beds
Watch the scenes of helpless mothers
Watch the blood flow from their head

Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire
Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man must stand behind
The men behind the wire
