about

This song was recorded in Lockdown by a Virtual Derry Supergroup.

Paddy wrote it and sent out a recoding of his guitar and vocal to fellow musicians who had some sort of home studio set up. They in turn recorded their parts and sent them back individually.

This is the result.

lyrics

I KNOW THIS JOURNEY WILL BE HARD
WE’VE ALL GOT OUR PART TO PLAY
THIS THING CAN ONLY GO SO FAR
UNTIL IT STARTS TO FADE AWAY
UNTIL THAT DAY

KEEP YOUR HEAD HELD HIGH
KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE
KEEP ER LIT

KEEP YOUR SPIRIT STRONG
KEEP YOUR HEART IN SONG
KEEP ON KEEPING ON
KEEP ER LIT

AND NO-ONE WANTS TO STAY AWAY
FROM THE ONE’S THAT WE HOLD DEAR
BUT GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
LOVE THEM WITH YOUR EYES AND EARS
UNTIL THE COAST IS CLEAR

KEEP YOUR HEAD HELD HIGH
KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE
KEEP ER LIT

KEEP YOUR SPIRIT STRONG
KEEP YOUR HEART IN SONG
KEEP ON KEEPING ON
KEEP ER LIT

TO EVERYONE ON THE FRONTLINE
THE HEROES WORKING DAY AND NIGHT
ALL WE CAN GIVE IS GRATITUDE
AND TRY TO DO OUR BEST BY YOU
WE’LL SEE IT THROUGH
