Lyrics
A boy born in Carron in 1923 His life cut short, on that we can agree A bullet in his brain, his life blood ebbs away In the front seat of his car lies Willie Macrae (They killed him) They killed him Noo Willie had been busy, he had information Nuclear dumps, paedo lords and Scotland's exploitation The files kept by his side at aw times night and day Were naewhere tae be found on Willie Macrae When (They killed him) They killed him Noo the verdict cam doon, it wis suicide they said But how can a man fire a bullet in his head THEN clean aff the prints and throw the gun away? Aye a very clever man was Willie Macrae So (They killed him) They killed him Over 30 years of silence since 1985 Who was the last to see Willie still alive? Who was it shot that gun and took his life away? (Who sent him there to kill) Willie Macrae? (They killed him) They killed him Aye 30 years of silence and the polis records gone Removed from the system by persons unknown Who don't want us to know what happened that day And who ordered the murder of Willie Macrae (They killed him) They killed him A boy born in Carron in 1923 His life cut short,on that we can agree A bullet in his brain, his life blood ebbs away In the front seat of his car lies Willie Macrae (They killed him) They killed him
