Bono & Gavin Friday – In The Name Of The Father

In the Name of the Father is a 1994 biographical film directed by Jim Sheridan. It is based on the true life story of the Guildford Four, four people falsely convicted of the IRA’s Guildford pub bombings which killed four off-duty British soldiers and a civilian. Bono & Gavin Friday come together for the title track which also opens up the film..


Come to me
Come lie beside me
Oh, don’t deny me your love

Make sense of me
Walk through my doorway
Don’t hide in the hallway
Oh love, step over

I’ll follow you down
I’ll follow you down

In the name of whiskey
In the name of song
You didn’t look back
You didn’t belong

In the name of reason
In the name of hope
In the name of religion
In the name of dope

In the name of freedom
you drifted away
To see the sun shining
on some one else’s day

In the name of United
and the BBC
In the name of Georgie Best
and LSD

In the name of the Father
and his wife the Spirit
You said you did not
they said you did it

In the name of justice
In the name of fun
In the name of the Father
In the name of the Son

Call to me
No one is listening
I’m waiting to hear from you, love

Stay with me
It’s cold in the ground
But there’s peace in the sound
of the white and the black
spilling over

I’ll follow you down
