2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I went to the match with me Dad
He started going just after the war
He saw all the great men
Saw united score ten
And was black and white through to the core

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I went to the match with me dad
The team weren’t doing that well
He was sick of it all
That wasn’t football
And the whole lot were headed for hell

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I went to the match with me dad
He was older and starting to grey
We walked right through the town
But he had to sit down
To rest his bad leg on the way

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I went to the match with me dad
That day he wasn’t so well
But we took my young lad
And he sat with me dad
I listened to him cast the same spell

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I went to the match without dad
But the lad still came with me instead
I felt sad as we walked
And I thought as we talked
Who would he take after I’m dead.
