The Long Road Home

The Long Road Home                    April 3, 2016


It's been a struggle on our long road home

Troubled times for our people, ourselves alone

We've lost our friends and our family on the way

We stand united together on our streets everyday

Growing up in our country with the others that came

Soon made our children play the patriots game

Loosing a friend of your childhood days

Thoughts in your heart, the memory stays

walking through fields, thinking of four

This lovely land a nation once more

From every street we lost one of us

Lead don't discriminate, we know what it does

The children of today with Irelands cause

We're never going back, it's forward and more

Free people in our new land, Irish for sure

No hate in our land only justice and peace

Our struggle is over, the drums must cease

We'll live together the way it should be

When that day comes we will be free

It's been a struggle on our long road home

Troubled times for our people, ourselves alone
