THIS LAND

Chris Byrne (Seanchai)

This land is your land, this land is my land
From the northern highlands to the western islands
From the hills of Kerry to the streets of Derry
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking by the Shannon water
Hand in hand with my little daughter
The church bells ringing, and the children singing
This land was made for you and me

>No acceptable level of violence
>No respectable political silence
>Form a new and powerful alliance
>Time has come - gonna take down the tyrant
>West Belfast is going to be free
>South Armagh is going to be free
>East Tyrone is going to be free
>So let us send a message to the powers that be
>We're gonna march along
>We're gonna right the wrong
>Until you have killed us
>You only make us stronger
>With our eyes on the prize
>They'll hear our cries
>Now is the time for our people to arise

So I walked her home by the old (???)
Proud of my country, proud of my people
Of the men who tried there, of the men who died there
This land is made for you and me
