stand it was taken to keep Ulster free,
residents said you're not walking down here
commission agreed because of their fear.
Portadown District want only their right
'til it's restored they'll stay day and night,
wire is sharp and the trench it is deep
the Garvaghy Road for the Brethren to keep.
roads far and wide their call was the same
culture to stamp out was clearly the aim,
Order agreed that the time was here now
the voice of Sinn Fein our knee will n'er bow
the power of the sash they now focus their hate
if we are united itís still not too late,
bomb and by bullet they tried to defeat
the spirit of Ulster cannot be beat.
future of Orange we now must defend
dignity keep please right up to the end,
rights we demand are for one and for all
banded together for divided we'll fall.
foes they are many our friends number few
history shows us here nothing is new,
look to our fathers who died for this land
Lord in the middle they stood hand in hand.
did not forsake them He heard them then pray
we call to Him now He will hear us today,
ask Him for guidance to show us His will
through the Lord Jesus is the way of that hill.
