I used to sing this song and want to start doing again just want to check the words as they may not be remembered correctly

Chorus is

Hey Sandy, hey Sandy why were you the one
all the years of growing up are wasted now and done
did you see them turn did you feel the burn
of the bullets as they flew
Hey Sandy hey Sandy just what did you do

Powerful song about the Kent State University riots of the early 70's in which 4 students were shot by the Civil Guard

Chorus you got almost right, Substitute DONE for Gone and you have it.
1 Well the sun was hot and the air was heavy as the marching men came by
And you ran to the door to watch them pass and you asked the others,"why"?
But the sound of the steel and the black boots heel was pounding in your head
And your freedom's passed they have come at last, with the blessings of the dead
Chorus

2   In the college square they were standing there with the flag and with the drum
An the whispered word as the young men stirred was, Now at last they've come
And the air was still with the lonely thrill Of now the hour is near
And the smell of sweat was better yet, than the awful stench of fear
Chorus
3   Through the air the shout as you all ran out Was, Why are these things done?
And you stood and stared and no-one cared for another campus bum
And your songs were dead, and the hymns instead Were to the burning pyre
And the words of youth, like Love and Truth, just ashes in the fire
Chorus

4 Did you throw the stones at the men alone, With their bayonets fixed for hire
Did you doubt that they would say no-one could, Did you scream when they opened fire
As the square ran red and the blood stain spread, And the darknes round you grew
Through the fear and pain did you call the name of the man you never knew.

Chorus / Chorus

Having just been reading Stephen Sondheim on how every word of a lyric is vitally important, here's the definitive original lyric;

1. Well, the sun was hot and the air was heavy
As the marching men came by,
And you ran to the door to watch them pass
And you asked the soldiers, "Why?"
But the sound of the steel and the black boot's heel
Was pounding in your head,
And your freedom's passed they have come at last
With the blessings of the dead.

CHORUS: Hey, Sandy, hey, Sandy, why were you the one?
All the years of growing up are wasted now and gone.
Did you see them turn? Did you feel the burn of the bullets as they flew?
Hey, Sandy, hey, Sandy, just what did you do?
Hey, Sandy, hey, Sandy, just what did you do?

2. In the college square they were standing there
With the flag and with the drum,
And the whispered word as the young ones stirred
Was, "Now at last they've come"
And the air was still with the lonely thrill
Of now the hour is near
And the smell of sweat was better yet
Than the awful stench of fear. CHORUS

3. Through the air the shout as you all ran out
Was "Why are these things done?"
And you stood and you stared but no one cared
For another campus bum
And your songs were dead, and the hymns instead
Were to the burning pyre
And the words of youth, like Love and Truth,
Just ashes in the fire. CHORUS

4. Did you throw the stone at the men alone,
With their bayonets fixed for hire?
Did you doubt that they would, say no one could?
Did you scream when they opened fire?
As the square ran red and your blood stain spread,
And the darkness round you grew,
Through the fear and the pain did you call the name
Of the man you never knew? CHORUS

One of my favorite songs from Christy Moore's repertoire. I didn't know Harvey Andrews wrote it. Well done!

Side note: Time magazine's issue reporting the Kent State murders featured the now-famous cover photo of a young woman kneeling by one of the victims, her face contorted in a scream of outrage and agony. This was Mary Vecchio, a girl from my wife's neighborhood who ran away from home in Miami at age 15 and ended up at the Kent State protest.

Cheers,
Michael

Michaelr - This is par for the course - So many people are only aware of who sings a song , not its origins and who actually wrote it !
The number of times I have heard 'Black is the Colour' introduced as
a Christie Moore song , when I have heard a 'live ' album where Cristie credits having learnt this traditional song from the singing
of Alex Atterson .

Thanks to one and all but especially to Harvey, it's not often you get the writer to post the correct words which I shall hopefully be singing in the Dolphin in Robin Hoods Bay tonight
