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

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You’re wrapped in the red scarf
As you walk with the kopites
And the faces on your wall
All now come to life

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You will stand with your mates
And be glad you are here
For you’re wearing the red
And your passion is clear

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 You will stop at the gates
And then say a prayer
For the 96 souls who
Won’t make it there

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 You will walk to the man
With his arms open wide
And you’ll pay him respect
For he built our great sides

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 His image in bronze
But his spirit goes on
And if you ask “What religion?”
He’ll tell you: “Liverpool Fc son…”
