  • 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
