They Never Came Home
Christy Moore
Foreword:
In my opinion this is one of the key songs of Christy Moore's career epitomizing his pursuit
of social justice and courage to speak out about issues of the day. This tells the story 
of the Star Dust nightclub tragedy of 14/2/1981 and the subsequent injustice and questionable 
impartiality of the legal system, the sham enquiry that without evidence exonerated the owners 
from wrongdoing by blaming  probable cause as arson (yes it was found to be probably the 
victims fault for burning themselves alive), and saving the insurer a vast fortune on 
compensating the 48 deaths and 215 seriously injured; and the owners untested for negligence in the 
safe storage of chemicals, the chaining of fire exits and the boarding up windows with steel plates
This song was played non stop in 1985 for 10 weeks (wearing out cassette tapes and CDs) 
in protest of a new niteclub being built on the same site with the insurance payout,
while the victims were thrown to the gutter and 3 decades later justice had not been served.
The Government of the day, the supposed representatives of the people sued Christy Moore for libel 
and forced his Ordinary Man album to be recalled, making the few copies out there quite rare. 
Many younger people in Ireland are not aware of this song due to it being banned
from the airwaves in the republic.

VERSE 1
     C             C            G            C
St.  Val-en-tine's day  comes a-round once a year, 
    C               C            F            G     G
our thought turn to love  as the day it draws near,
     C                C           F             C
When sweet-hearts and dar-lings,  hus-bands and wives, 
       C           C               G             C     C
Pledge love and de-vo-tion for.the rest of their lives
   F            F             C               C
As day turns to even-ing soon night-time does fall,
      C           C              F             G     G 
Young peo-ple get ready  for the Val-en-tine's Ball,
       C                C              F             C
As the night rings with laugh-ter some peo-ple still mourn 
    C            C             G           C     C
The for-ty eight chil-dren who ne-ver came home


CHORUS
F           F           C              C
Have we for-got-ten the suff-ering and pain 
        C           C               F          G     G
the sur-viv-ors and vic-tims of.the fire in Ar-tane,
    C            C            F        C
the moth-ers and fath-ers for-ever  to mourn 
    C            C             G           C     C
the for-ty eight chil-dren who ne-ver came home.


VERSE 2
      C           C               G              C
it's  down to the Star-dust they  all made their way
    C                C           F           G     G 
The boun-cers looked on as they  lined up to pay
    C            C                 F           C
The rec-ords are spin-ning there's dan-cing as well 
     C            C             G          C     C
Just how the fire start-ed sure no one can tell.
     F          F            C           C
In.a mat-ter of sec-onds con-fus-ion did reign 
    C           C              F           G      G
The room was in dark-ness fire ex-its were chained
     C              C         F              C
The  fire-fight-ers wept  for they could not hide,
      C           C          G             C     C 
Their sorr-ow and an-ger for those left in-side.


CHORUS


VERSE 3
      C          C          G           C
All a-round  the city  the  bad news it spread
          C           C                  F            G     G 
There's a fire in the Star-dust there's  for-ty eight dead 
C            C             F            C
Hun-dreds of chil-dren are in-jured and maimed 
    C           C              G           C       C
And all just be-cause the fire ex-its were chained.
    F             F              C                C
Our lead-ers were shocked,  grim state-ments were made 
          C            C              F            G     G
They shed tears by the graves  as.the bo-dies were laid
     C             C          F             C
The  vic-tims have wait-ed in vain for four years 
   C              C             G           C     C
It seems like our lead-ers shed croc-o-dile tears.


CHORUS


VERSE 4
       C            C             G          C
Half a mill-ion was spent  on  so-lic-itor's fees, 
  C               C           F          G     G
A for-tune to.the ow-ner and  his fa-mil-y
     C          C          F          C
It's hard to be-lieve  not one pen-ny came
       C              C           G             C     C
To the work-ing class peo-ple who suff-ered the pain.
F            F          C             C 
Days turn to weeks  and weeks turn to years 
         C           C        F         G     G
Our laws fav-our the rich  or so it app-ears
   C            C             F            C
A  wo-man still waits for her kids to come home 
   C               C          G                  C     C
In-jus-tice breeds an-ger and that's what's been done.
