The Patriot Game - The Bluebells

Written by:D. Behan

Come all you young rebels and list while I sing


For the love of one's country is a terrible thing


It banishes fear with the speed of a flame


And it makes us all part of the patriot game


My name is O'hanlon I've just turned sixteen


My home is in Montanan where I was weaned


I learned all my life injustice to blame


And so I'm part of the patriot game


It's barely two years since I wandered away


With the local battalion of the old Ira


They told me of heroes I wanted the same


To play a great part in the patriot game


Where is the young man this earth ever taught


Whose life is less sacred then all the old fraught


Whose boy who's less lucky whose vision less fate


Than the old men who paid for the patriot game


And now as I'm dyeing my body all holes


I think of the old men who bargained and sold


I'm sorry my rifle has not done the same


To those rebels who sold out the patriot game
