No. 1 Platoon

I'll remember I'll try, it was nearly July,
As we walked down the road I'll remember the year,
There was me, there was Sam, Jimmy Sloan and McCann,
Would enlist in the Volunteers.

And the man says to me, 'Boy I hope you will see,
'And remember this day all the things you've been taught',
It could be now or then, but we'll fight once again,
For the things that our grandfathers fought.

And I swore like the rest to the badge on my breast,
To the gun in my hand I will fight for my land,
With my hand held high I took that vow ,
And I joined Number One Platoon.

And deep down inside my heart fills with pride,
I remember the men who have fought through the years,
I could name quite a few but to me and to you,
They were Ulster Volunteers.

And to all here today just some words I must say,
To remember this day,
All the things you've been taught,
It could be now or then, but we'll fight once again ,
For the things that our grandfathers fought.

And I swore like the rest to the badge on my breast,
To the gun in my hand I will fight for my land,
With my hand held high I took that vow,
And I joined Number One Platoon
