The Old Men Cried


The Old Men Cried June 2, 2017

In Glasgow town I heard a song
 A song about freedom the song wasn't long
 I watched the faces as old men cried
 Tears of sorrow, history denied
 I went to see where these people died
 The Gael was Kilmainham, an Irish sky
 Ireland free, killed if you try
 Irish with vision, they took them all
 Taken from life by the force that came
 Denied Ireland freedom and peace, no shame
 I seen the spot where Connolly died
 Taken from Ireland as the old men cried
 Tears of sadness, a crime they denied
 I watched the faces as the old men cried
 Tears of sadness, a crime still denied
