Following the Redmen

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You will walk with your Dad down the Walton Breck Road
In your new Liverpool strip the colours red and bold
You’re wrapped in the red scar as you walk with the kopites
And the faces on your wall all now come to life

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You will stand with your mates and be glad you are here
For you’re wearing the red and your passion is clear
You will stop at the gates and then say a prayer
For the 96 souls who won’t make it there

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You will walk to the man with his arms open wide
And you’ll pay him respect for he built our great sides
His image in bronze but his spirit breathes on
And if you ask “What religion?” He’ll tell you:
“Liverpool Fc son…”
