Lyrics

"Let the Fight Go On"
by James Daly and Ray Collins.

Whenever people fight for truth
for freedom and justice too
we'll remember a martyred Irish youth
Patsy O'Hara we'll remember you
You answered your mother's final plea
that your hunger strike should not go on
"I'm sorry mammy we did not win
please mammy let the fight go on".

The unyielding stand that you took that day
struck a hard resounding blow
against Britain's monstrous tyranny
and will force her soon to go
the oppressor's lies and censorship
cannot stifle your message so strong
"I'm sorry mammy we did not win
please mammy let the fight go on"

Whenever human dignity by oppressors is denied
where ruthless force and boundless greed
is met by courage, faith, and pride
at the height of the struggle fierce and grim
we'll hear your dying words again
"I'm sorry mammy we did not win
please mammy let the fight go on".

We love you Patsy O'Hara,
Bobby Sands and Francis Hughes,
Raymond McCreesh and Joe McDonnell,
Martin Hurson and Kevin Lynch,
your comrades Kieran Doherty
Tom McElwee and Michael Devine
For the cause you died and the reason why
we'll make sure that "the fight goes on"
Together you died for the love of us
and your caurage will help us to fight on
For the cause you died and the reason why
we'll make sure that" the fight goes on"
