Number One Platoon (V)

I'll remember I'll try, it was nearly July
As we walked down the road, I'll remember the year
There was me, there was Sam, Jimmy Sloan and McCann
Would enlist in the Volunteers

#Chorus#
And the man says to me, 'Boy I hope you will see
'And remember this day, all the things you've been taught'
It could be now or then, but we'll fight once again
For the things that our grandfathers fought.

And I swore like the rest, to the badge on my breast
To the gun in my hands, I will fight for my land
With my hands held high, I took that vow
When I joined Number One Platoon

Then deep down inside, my heart fills with pride
I remember the men, who have fought through the years
I could name quite a few, but to me and to you
They were Ulster Volunteers

#Chorus#
And the man says to me, 'Boy I hope you will see
And remember this day, all the things you've been taught'
It could be now or then, but we'll strike once again
For the things that our grandfathers fought.


And I swore like the rest, to the badge on my breast
To the gun in my hands, I will fight for my land
With my hand held high, I took that vow
And I joined Number One Platoon.

#Chorus#
And the man says to me, 'Boy I hope you will see
And remember this day, all the things you've been taught
It could be now or then, but we'll fight once again
For the things that our grandfathers fought.


And I swore like the rest, to the badge on my breast
To the gun in my hands, I will fight for my land
With my hands held high, I took that vow
And I joined Number One Platoon.

With my hands held high, I took that vow
And I joined Number One Platoon.

With my hands held high, I took that vow
And I joined Number One Platoon.

And I joined Number One Platoon.
