I Heard it Thro’ th’ Raithvine.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Betcha wond’rin’ how I knew..
that ye supported th’ team in blue…
Th’ look in yer eye told me it’s so..
so I thought I’d better let ye know…
In Division Two we’re gonna stay..
’cause I found out yesterday…
Och aye I heard it thro’ th’ Raithvine..
about that bonnie wee team o’ mine…
Och aye I heard it thro’ th’ Raithvine..
an’ it just about blew my mind…
Och aye… och aye… yeah…

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Ye ken a man ain’t supposed t’ cry..
but I’ve got a tear in m’ eye…
So near an’ yet so far away..
it seems all that I can do is pray…
‘Cause we missed goin’ up this year..
an’ tis tae much for a man t’ bear…
Och aye I heard it thro’ th’ Raithvine..
about that bonnie wee team o’ mine…
Och aye I heard it thro’ th’ Raithvine..
an’ it just about blew my mind…
Och aye… och aye… yeah…

Notes

Raith Rovers have narrowly missed out on promotion… again…
With acknowledgement to composers Whitfield and Strong, as well as to Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Credence Clearwater Revival and others…
