lyrics

I've done my years Hard Labour now
In a cell here on my own
And I've lost the use of my left hand
Where the guards broke every bone
Now Jimmy died inside his cell
But a free man anyhow
He grinned and told them: 'Do your worst'
And they cannot hurt him now

He knew what he believed in
And he stood by what was right
And he would not take their rifle
No, he would not fight

I squint into the sunlight now
As I step into the street
If this is your big victory
Then how come all I see is defeat?
From the sewn up jacket elbows
And those heroes being wheeled out
To the trembling and the twitching
No-one talks about

He knew what he believed in
And he stood by what was right
And he would not take their rifle
No, he would not fight

You all call me The Coward now
You can barely speak my name
But I made a promise to a friend
That he would not die in vain
So go ask Father Kendrick now
Because I know he'll understand
Why you never make a martyr
Of a righteous man

He knew what he believed in
And he stood by what was right
And he would not take their rifle
No, he would not fight
