Devout to the Green & White

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 On a Saturday afternoon
We would make our way to Celtic Park,
Where we would stand and cheer the Bhoys in green
While waving Celtic and Ireland’s flag.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The songs of Glasgow Celtic,
They would flow from every fan
As the Hoops have been worn, since we were born,
From every boy and man.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We have heard of Patsy Gallagher
And the skills that he possessed,
The goals from Jimmy McGrory,
We would swear that he was blessed.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Neil Mochan and Sean Fallon,
They both wore the Hoops with pride
And Tommy Burns and Peter Grant
Were devout to the green & white.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And when we meet our Maker,
When we pass through the Pearly Gates,
We will sing of the Glasgow Celtic
And put a scarf around his neck.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 We will shake the hands of Thomson and Doyle,
Jimmy Quinn and big Jock Stein,
And with Brother Walfrid, we will talk forever,
About the Bhoys in emerald green.
