About Out in the Fields

"Out in the Fields" is a single by former Thin Lizzy band members Gary Moore and Phil Lynott, released in 1985. The song is about the Troubles in Northern Ireland. The song is reminiscent of the sound of their band and is influenced by both artists' wide musical palettes. It performed well critically as well as commercially, reaching No.3 in the Irish Singles Chart and No.5 on the UK Singles Chart, the highest positions either of the two ever reached in their solo careers and the highest UK singles chart position of Lynott's entire career - both with and without Thin Lizzy. "Out in the Fields" was also one of the last recordings made by Phil Lynott before his death on 4 January 1986.

It doesn't matter
if you're wrong or if you're right.
It makes no difference
if you're black or if you're white.
All men are equal
till the victory is won.
No colour or religion
ever stopped the bullet from a gun.
Out in the fields,
the fighting has begun.
Out on the streets,
they're falling one by one.
Out from the skies,
a thousand more will die each day.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
It doesn't matter
if you're left or to the right.
Don't try to hide behind the cause
for what you fight.
There'll be no prisoners taken
when the day is done.
No flag or uniform
ever stopped the bullet from a gun.
Out in the fields,
the fighting has begun.
Out on the streets,
they're falling one by one.
Out from the skies,
a thousand more will die each day.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
There's no communication,
no one to take the blame.
The cries of every nation
have fallen on deaf ears again.
Out in the fields.
Out in the fields.
They are falling one by one.
Out in the fields.
No flag has ever stopped
the bullet from a gun.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields,
a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields,
a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
In the fields,
the fighting has begun.
Out on the streets,
they're falling one by one.
Out from the skies,
a thousand more will die each day.
OUT!
