He Smiled at Me


He Smiled at Me April 27, 2014

He smiled at me when he was free
 Goodbye to his struggle Ireland and me
 A Belfast boy with more to come
 They took away our Irish son
 In the heavens he sleeps with Ireland
 He died for his dream in my land
 Bobby walked the path of life
 A stolen land with trouble and strife
 A child of Ireland running free
 On Belfast streets with you and me
 He must go the British said
 Lock him away make sure he's dead
 Kill our children wait and see
 We're still alive you and me
 Ireland lives, Ireland free
 Bobby's wish was being free
 Ireland united you and me
 He smiled at me when he was free
 Goodbye to his struggle Ireland and me
