A biographical protest folk song about Irish hunger striker Bobby Sands, which was written shortly after his death in May of 1981.
Belfast explodes, Derry erupts
Responding to the love contained in Bobby’s heart.

If you fight for Ireland, you might be locked up
And jailed without a jury vote inside of the H-Block
Bobby Sands, he starved himself, and England let him die
“Prisoners of War we are!” was Bobby Sands’ last cry.

Elected to the Parliament with less than a month to live
Giving his life for the Blanketmen and for all of Ireland
Bobby Sands, he starved himself, and England let him die
“Prisoners of War we are!” was Bobby Sands’ last cry.

Belfast explodes, Derry erupts
Responding to the love contained in Bobby’s heart.

Exposing to all of the world the heartless cruelty
Sixty-six days on hunger strike without a bite to eat
Bobby Sands, he starved himself, and England let him die
“Prisoners of War we are!” was Bobby Sands’ last cry.

Not yet even 30 years old, why did he have to die?
All the British rulers commit so many crimes
Bobby Sands, he starved himself, and England let him die
“Prisoners of War we are!” was Bobby Sands’ last cry.

Belfast explodes, Derry erupts
Responding to the love contained in Bobby’s heart.

Backed by U.S. companies, using U.S. guns
British troops shoot at children, all in the name of “freedom”
Bobby Sands, he starved himself, and England let him die
“Prisoners of War we are!” was Bobby Sands’ last cry.

How many more must starve to death before Ireland can be free?
How many more years of pain before the British leave?
Bobby Sands, he starved himself, and England let him die
“Prisoners of War we are!” was Bobby Sands’ last cry.
