(Christy Moore)

In the broad daylight of a summer's day
on the Cork to Dublin motorway
suddenly the singing birds
were startled in their song
in the quiet of that moment
our world went out of kilter
in that split second
Veronica was gone.

But you will never silence her
your story will be written
her spirit won't rest easy
until the job is done
with boots and fists you broke her bones
when you gunned her down at home
as soon as she was able
she faced you up again.

You who made the phone call
you who took the message down
you who hired the hitman
you who hatched the plan
you who drew the money down
you who paid it over
you who remains silent
you are guilty everyone.

As you lurk around your fortress in secrecy and furtiveness
you'll always be reminded of her smiling face
as you crawl around the darkness of your criminal insanity
forever on the lookout for another hiding place
you try to count your friends you ponder on your enemies
recalling the whereabouts of your treasure trove
but when it's time to write your final will and testament
you'll understand what goes to make a legacy of love.

Veronica, Veronica, Veronica, warrior woman
Veronica, Veronica, Veronica, I offer you this song.

copied from the Chrisdty Moore songbook 'One voice'.
