Paul Tiernan – Incident At The River's Edge lyrics

Please louise, I'm sorry you know, but I had to do what I had to do,

One man's bullet is another man's fate, for god and country, I did it for you,

Won't you come down, won't you come down, won't you come down...

To the river's edge,

So now you say that you want to know, how we could tell which boy should go,

Well, word it came down from above, on the bible we swore when push comes to shove...

Won't you come down, won't you come down, won't you come down...

To the river's edge,

We put our fingers on the triggers and let our bullets fly,

We laid our bodies down for freedom, it made our people happy, happy, happy...

Please louise it's the government, I love you still, I mean what I meant,

This work is work, so don't be cruel, what do you mean we've broken the rules?

Won't you come down, won't you come down, won't you come down...

To the river's edge,
