The last to die was Michael beneath an Irish sky
Derry remembers her son, we still ask why?

Your loving smile continued to your final mile
You cried alone for your comrades, martyrs one to nine
You were number ten, you seen it all
Ten Irish men died, God Bless them all
England came to your land, you walked proud and tall
The empire came with power and might they claimed it all
Ireland a sovereign nation, like many taken before
Go home mother England, you've stolen many more
You came to our land, Irish people must die
Killing our people as you hold your head high
Michael Devine died alone in Ireland with resistance
Ten men died for freedom, no more deaths anymore
The last to die was Michael beneath an Irish sky
Derry remembers her son, we still ask why



Gerrard McGeachy


I wrote the words for Michael Devine, He faced it all as his comrades left him, How sad. God Bless Michael. I love and pray for you
