The Go Set – Raymond O'Byrne lyrics

Young boy leaves his home, to seek adventure in a foreign land
A young boy sails away, on the journey that will make him a man

And I wonder what were we fighting for,
Gotta wonder was it someone else's war when we said

Hey ho, together we would stand, we know that divided we would fall
Hey ho, together we would stand, we said, all for one and one for all

Then the whistle blew, and darkness turned to night
Terror in a young mans eyes, but he stands to fight
Shells fell all around him, good men fell but they were still taking ground
There's blood on the sand, in the adventure that would make him a man

And I wonder what were we fighting for,
Gotta wonder was it someone else's war when we said

Hey ho, together we would stand, we know that divided we would fall
Hey ho, together we would stand, we said, all for one and one for all

20 years have gone, and the country's free but he is locked inside his mind
20 years of dreams, of all the blood, and young mens screams
He walks out to his shed, and in his uniform put a rope around his neck,
There's a freedom in death, and there he breathed his very last breath
