about

Guns and Pikes is the second single for the forthcoming album "In Nomins Éireann".

lyrics

Jack is a revolutionary
He says he’ll not give up
‘Til every man and woman
Has a decent life setup
He’ll raise gun against tyranny
Where air it lifts its head
And he’ll cut you down upon the ground
If you say the cause is dead

Praise the ones who face oppression,
Praise the ones who dare to fight!
They gave their life for freedom
and shall be hailed both day and night!
Be of god or of the devil,
if they come, bring guns and pikes,
cause the likes of them are fierce
and they will fight until they die.

He’s a long way from his home land
In this tropical paradise
But still he hears the calling
To fight for what is right.
And when he leaves this mortal coil
And says his proud farewell
He’ll raise his fists to anyone
Be they in heaven or in hell.

Praise the ones who face oppression,


Praise the ones who dare to fight!
They gave their life for freedom
and shall be hailed both day and night!
Be of god or of the devil,
if they come, bring guns and pikes,
cause the likes of them are fierce
and they will fight until they die.
Get up outta that you impudent brat
and let the man sit down
He gave his life to freedom and
to keepin’ taxes down.

And if the king comes callin
a looking for his gold
He’ll send him off a packing
like in the days of old

Praise the ones who face oppression,
Praise the ones who dare to fight!
They gave their life for freedom
and shall be hailed both day and night!
Be of god or of the devil,
if they come, bring guns and pikes,
cause the likes of them are fierce
and they will fight until they die.


Praise the ones who face oppression,
Praise the ones who dare to fight!
They gave their life for freedom
and shall be hailed both day and night!
Be of god or of the devil,
if they come, bring guns and pikes,
cause the likes of them are fierce
and they will fight until they die.
