Auf Wiedersehen to Crossmaglen.

Auf Wiedersehen to Crossmaglen farewell to Carrickmore
I've seen enough of Ireland boys and I wont be back for more
no I wont be back for more.

The recruiting sergeant told me son "Army life is great"
but he did not mention the mortar bombs
or bloody claimore mines.


He told me of the German girls
the discos every night but the only craic in
South Armagh comes from an armalite.


I spent some time on the Tomb Bridge line
where I thought I knew no fear,
until a van bomb parked outside our base
brought the barracks around my ears.


Farewell at last to West Belfast
from the Markets to the Falls
I quickly got the message there
it was written on the walls.


So all you young lads
where in England you maybe signing on the breau,
just stay well away from the IRA
and they wont bother you.
