viva la quince brigada

christy moore'un da ayni isimde bir sarkisi vardir. franco'ya karsi savasmak icin irlanda'dan gidenlerin anisina yazilmistir, arada din adamlarinin ve medyanin fasistlerle isbirligine de deginir.
sozleri soyle tezahur eder:

ten years before i saw the light of morning, a comradeship of heroes was laid
from every corner of the world came sailing the fifth international brigade

they came to stand beside the spanish people to try and stem the rising fascist tide
franco's allies were the powerful and wealthy; frank ryan's men came from the other side

even the olives were bleeding as the battle for madrid it thundered on
truth and love against the force of evil, brotherhood against the fascist clan

chorus:
viva la quince brigada, no paseran the pledge that made them fight
adelante was the cry around the hillside, let us all remember them tonight

bob hillard was a church of ireland pastor, for killarney across the pyrenees he came
from derry came a brave young christian brother, side by side they fought and died in spain

tommy woods aged seventeen died in cordoba, with na fianna he learned to hold his gun
from dublin to the viva del rio, where he fought and died beneath the spanish sun

chorus

many irishmen heard the call of franco, join hitler and mussolini too
propaganda from the pulpit and newspaper helped o'duffy to enlist his crew

the word came from maynooth support the nazi's, the men of cloth failed yet again
when bishops blessed the blueshirts in dun laoghaire as they sailed beneath the swastika to spain

chorus

this song is a tribute to frank ryan, kit conway and dinny cody too
peter daly, charlie regan and hugh bonner, though many died i can but name a few

danny doyle, blasser-brown and charlie donnelly, liam tumilson and jim straney from the falls
jack nalty, tommy patton and frank conroy, jim foley, tony fox and dick o'neill

chorus
