Love me tonight
Obviously a "Love Song" Frank Ryan/Dermot Reynolds

Track 03. See the hand that holds the gun.   Frank Ryan (1.0 MB...32kb/sec bit rate.....time :4 min 16 sec)
A powerful ballad about the plight of  kids in Northern Ireland as many of them have 
seen violence and troubles since the day they were born.It also suggests some positive things
that can be done with guns and bombs-like breaking them down and making musical
instruments out of them......let the rifle-stock be broken off
                                        and fashioned by the lathe
                                        into fiddle-heads and wooden flutes
                                        and bodhran beaters made
                                        and the barrel it be drilled with holes
                                        a whistle for the play'n
                                        let the sights be set upon regret
                                        and the recoil be refrain
