No hits with a search. Any lyric snippets? Is Justice the entire band name or what?

Too eager, he shot outside at his first attempt and that ruined his name with the fair sex forever, and that's why he's called 'one shot'.

Like this one shot paddy?

from rebel chords


In [G] Ireland many years ago or [D] so the legend [G] says
Saint [D] Patrick roamed the hills and glens to [C] drive the snakes[G] away,
But now we have another another saint that's [D] bad news for the [G] crown
His [D] name is "One Shot Paddy" and it's [C] Brits that [D] he will [G] hound!

The brits are getting worried they've all gone underground
If 'One Shot Paddy' sees them they know they're going down
So the next time that you see the Brits with their faces full of fright
Look out for 'One Shot Paddy' and his friend called Eamon Wright!

Through the hills of South Armagh this gallant hero roams
He'll wander through the countryside he likes to call his home,
And when he finds a target he will quietly take his aim,
It is then that you will hear the crack and the Brits know who's to blame!

So if you're home at night and the newsflash it is red,
Your man from South Armagh's at work – another soldier dead,
And when it comes to celebrate Saint Patrick's day cheer,
Remember 'One Shot Paddy' and the gallant IRA!

To clarify "one shot paddy" was not a person its the codename given to the Barrett M99 Bolt action sniper rifle our South Armagh Sniper Brigade used and since ammo for the weapon was extremely expensive we would only take a single shot with us and neutralise our target and Eamon Wright (aiming right) was the codename given to the sniper himself since he never missed a shot and since this took an amazing mental toll on British forces in our homeland we continued our sniper campaign for several years and it is still utilized today as the struggle for a united Ireland continues

One Shot Paddy refers to Dominic McGlinchey. Some other songs about him are "Paddy Public Enemy Number One" and "Hands Up Trousers Down".
