Another Great Anfield Night

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Anfield park is quiet now
The Kop that was so full
With every Red gone home to bed
To dream of Istanbul

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The floodlights switched off not a sound
But a whisper on the wind
Then the bootroom doors flung open wide
As glory wanders in

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Bill Shankly stands where Rafa stands
And guides his boys again
He calls to Yeats and then to Milne
And smiles at Ian St John

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Durham tones they fill the air
Sir Bob with a cup or two
There’s Joey Jones his face lit up
King Kenny lacing up his boots

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Alec Lindsay like a rock
There’s Heighway down the wings
Keegan runs defences ragged
Brings them to ther knees

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Sir Billy Liddell pulls on his shirt
And calls to Shankly there
“I’ll run through walls for Liverpool
Just like my hero Carragher”

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Legends heroes immortal names
The years can’t brush aside
The Anfield nights that saw such games
Came back again last night.

Notes

WELL DONE REDMEN AND KOPITES YOU TOOK YOUR PLACE ALONGSIDE THE REDS OF ’65, ’77 ’02…….AND SO MANY MANY OTHERS…….

“I was born by the banks of the Mersey
Facin’ the Irish Sea
It might not look like heaven to you
But its home sweet home to me”
