GUEST,dec Lyr Req: The Legend / Mandela (Dan Hannon) (47) RE: Lyr Req: The Legend (from Terry O'Neill) 12 Feb 07

I went to see a legend just the other night
At the Yankee Stadium underneath the lights
I heard a man speaking after years and years in jail
His name it was Mandela and he came to tell his tale

The crowd they cheered him loudly ah but then the silence fell
As he talked about the hard years in a South African cell
And although he was free his heart was feeling the pain
For his country and his people were still a part of that shame

Well he hoped that he could join them and walk down freedom's path
For these roads would be hardest oh but they would be the last
And to join our hands together so that we might be as one
And to bring ourselves to the cause so this war it could be won.

Hope that clears it up a bit for ye
