I wish I believed in Heaven

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I wish I believed in Heaven
I would dearly love George to be there
Playing with big Duncan Edwards
Under Matt Busby’s fatherly stare

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I wish I believed in Heaven
Where, in His Celestial care
The angels would gather in thousands
To watch that incredible pair

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I wish I believed in Heaven
I would try to get up on a cloud
Where I could be with the angels
Among football’s luckiest crowd

Notes

Nobody’s perfect – but on the football pitch, George Best nearly was.
I am proud to say I watched him play against my favourite team, and to boast that he came from my ‘neck o’ the woods’.
