Here lies a Soldier

In dungeon deep, I know what fates awaits me,
Tied hand and foot, the foe has bound me fast,
And in my pain, I pray my God above me,
Will grant this wish I know will be my last.

Don't bury me in Erin's fenian valley,
Take me home to Ulster let me rest,
And on my gravestone carve a simple message,
Here lies a soldier of the UVF.

Here lies a soldier, here lies a soldier,
Who fought and died for what he thought was best,
Here lies a soldier, here lies a soldier,
Here lies a soldier of the UVF.

So gently drape the red hand round my shoulders,
Pin no heroes medals on my chest,
But if they ask you, will you kindly tell them,
Here lies a soldier of the UVF.

Here lies a soldier, here lies a soldier,
Who fought and died for what he thought was best,
Here lies a soldier, here lies a soldier,
Here lies a soldier of the UVF.
