Subject: Lyr Req: Hearts on Fire - Welsh folk song

Can someone give me the lyrics of a song I heard a few years ago - I think the chorus goes Hearts on fire, fond desire, hearts on fire, burning bright. Also one of the verses goes something like
In the land of Davy Crocket, They've built themselves a rocket. Then later - While in Africa their crying, for the want of food their dying, For this the lord he gave his only son.

thanks - regards - jimmy

Hearts On Fire
(Frank Hennessy)
With hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Hearts on fire burning bright

All around the world our young men, having songs of freedom sung them
And every dog of war will have his day
And the pride of all the nations, standing at their stations
Smiling as they wave their lives away

In the land of Davy Crockett they built themselves a rocket
That they say will bring a new way some day soon
While in Africa they're crying, for the want of food they're dying
While others walk around upon the moon

In a blind deserted alley in the broken Rhondda Valley
A man was sadly searching for his soul
And his eyes are unforgiving, when they took away his living
His pride was buried deep beneath the coal

As the Belfast evening thunders the Lord looks down and wonders
Will my children ever live as one
From the church he hears them calling as his bitter tears are falling
For this, he said, I gave my only son

(as sung by Dave Burns)

Yer 'tis. It's written and recorded by both Frank Hennessy and Dave Burns, by the way. [Recorded by] Hennessy on the CD "Thoughts and Memories" and by [Dave] Burns on the CD "Last Pit in the Rhondda". This is from memory, so please forgive any little errors.

All around the world are young men,
Having songs of freedom sung them,
And every dog of war will have his day.
While the pride of all the nations
Are standing at their stations.
Smiling as they wave their lives away.

CHORUS. With hearts on fire.
Hearts on fire.
Hearts on fire,
Burning bright.

In the land of Davy Crockett,
They've built themselves a rocket,
That they say will bring a brand new morning someday soon,
While in Africa they're crying,
For the want of food they're dying.
As others walk around upon the moon. CHORUS.

In a blind deserted alley
In the broken Rhondda Valley,
A man is sadly searching for his soul,
But his eyes are unforgiving,
When they took away his living
His pride was buried deep beneath the coal, CHORUS.

As the Belfast evening thunders,
The Lord looks down and wonders,
Will my children ever live as one?
From the church he hears them calling,
As his bitter tears are falling,
For this, he said, I gave my only son. CHORUS TWICE.

END.
