All the radio said was another shot dead
And he died with a gun in his hand
But they never said why Billy Reid had to die
'Cause he died to free Ireland.
I'll sing you a song of a terrible wrong,
2. It happened one day when the bold IRA
3. While returning the guns Billy met British Huns|
And when the fight had begun
His position was dire when his gun wouldn't fire
So he died with that old Thompson gun.
4. Allthough he lay dead he was kicked in the head,
5. If you think he was right come and join in the fight,
