A Liverpool Red

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The reds are the finest the grandest of men
I’ve followed the ‘pool, and I’d do so again
Heroes and legends, Sir Bill Shankly’s Dream
The songs of The Kop Choir, 12th man on the team

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Cups there a plenty bear Sir Bob Paisely’s name
His teams were the finest to e’re grace the game
Lads from the streets who had walked alongside
The faithful who cheered them with passion and pride

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The tales from the travels, the European wins
Novenas and prayers, blessings and hymns
I have stood with the rain driving down on my soul
Yet nought warms my heart like a Reds winning goal.
