Four Horsemen

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Famine, pestilence, destruction and death
In dramatic lore, they are known
Against a grey December sky, they ride
Set for battle, under names of their own

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 On a white horse, Reina holds a ball
Strong, commanding, no man shall pass
Carragher holds a large sword up high
His fiery red horse blazes over grass

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The leader declares the long wait over
A black horse carries Gerrard, man of steel
Torres, the chosen one, atop the palest horse
At the sorcerer’s feet, they will kneel

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Sporting enemies swept over the precipice
A promise to deliver and a desire to rule
Fearsome warriors, their time has come
Unstoppable, Four Horsemen of Liverpool



Inspired by the “Four Horsemen of Notre Dame.” The renowned sports writer (and poet) Grantland Rice, coined the phrase to describe an outstanding group of (American) footballers from the University of Notre Dame, in a match report which appeared in The New York Herald-Tribune in 1924.
