Subject: Lyr Add: BLOODY SUNDAY
I think this is near enough.


We demand civil rights all the marchers did say
Five thousand people assembled that day
From Free Derry Corner set off with a cheer
The march it was peaceful, we'd nothing to fear

But the parachute regiment came down our street
Five hundred men all over six feet
They came with machine guns and big slr's???
Rolling down William Street in their Saracen cars

At the Free Derry Corner the slaughter began
Some people fell and some people ran
Our civil rights banner was stained bloody red
At the barricades there they shot three people dead

As the wounded lay bleeding a doctor is called
And the firing continues and another two fall
The harvest they reaped with their bullets of lead
Bloody Sunday in Derry and thirteen shot dead

And the order it came from Whitehall you know
Open fire kill a few, draw them out, have a go
We all knew it then and the world knows today
Thirteen innocent men with their lives had to pay

And the tribunal mockery was soon carried out
Just doing their duty of that there's no doubt
On England's cold history a crime lingers yet
How can we forgive them, how can we forget
