Sweeney's Team

I still recall the moment, when my father went away,
They locked him up in Long Kesh, For being Loyal so they say,
I heard he was a hero, in the U.V.F it seems,
They told me to be proud of him, to hold on to his dream,
So I took the oath and joined them,
The men in Sweeneys Team.

The years went by so quickly, and they set my father free,
We'd hardly been together, when the Bastards got to me,
I became a Loyalist Prisoner, as my father had before,
I learned the price of freedom, at the slamming of the door ,
And my love for Ulster lived with me, even in these cells.

Say it loud, Say it Clear,
I'm a soldier, an Ulster Volunteer,
Proud to be, a Y.C.V,
And to serve with the men in Sweeneys team.

My father came to see me, as often as he could,
His knowledge was astounding, his advice was always good,
Remember where you come from, keep your head held high,
Be proud of your history, Ulsters flag must fly,
And if you don't give up don't give in, you'll win the fight some day.

Say it loud, Say it Clear,
I'm a soldier, an Ulster Volunteer,
Proud to be, a Y.C.V,
And to serve with the men in Sweeneys team.

I wasn't there that evening, when my father passed away,
And though he hadn't spoken, I knew just what he'd say,
Be true to your religion, Remember Queen and Crown,
Always love your comrades, never let them down,
Thats what he would have told me, in the living years.

Say it loud, Say it Clear,
I'm a soldier, an Ulster Volunteer,
Proud to be, a Y.C.V,
And to serve with the men in Sweeneys team.

Say it loud, Say it Clear,
I'm a soldier, an Ulster Volunteer,
Proud to be, a Y.C.V,
And to serve with the men in Sweeneys team.

Say it loud, Say it Clear,
I'm a soldier, an Ulster Volunteer,
Proud to be, a Y.C.V,
And to serve with the men in Sweeneys team.
