Men Behind The Wire Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Armored cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons!
but every man must stand behind
the men behind the wire

armored cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons
but every man must stand behind
the men behind the wire

In the little streets of belfast
in the dark of early morn
British soldiers came a-running
wrecking little homes with scorn
hear the sobs of crying children
dragging fathers from their bed
watch the scene as helpless mother
watch the blood fall from their heads

armored cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons
but every man must stand behind
stand behind the wire

not for them a judge of jury,
or indeed a crime at all
being irish means their guilty
so their 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 man

Armored cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons
but every man must stand behind
the men behind the wire

Armored cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons
but every man must stand behind
the men behind the wire

proudly march behind our banner
proudly march behind our men
we will have them free to help us
build a nation once again
come the people step together
proudly march on your way
never fear and never falter
till the boys come home to stay

armored cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons
but every man must stand behind
the men behind the wire

armored cars and tanks and guns
came to take away our sons
but every man must stand behind
stand behind the wire.
