Martins gone he left today

He's in the heavens far away

Derry's son stood proud and tall

The bogside boy who answered the call

A life of struggle he led the way

So Irish people could have their say

Bloody Sunday was on his call

Fourteen people God Bless them all

On Williams street there was no retreat

Civil rights will not be beat

A vision of peace on Irelands shore

Who could ask for anything more

He stepped to the side for political life

He never forgot the struggle and strife

He stood strong against things that were wrong

We'll remember his cause, the soldiers song

Matins gone he left today

He's in the heavens far away
