Jimmy Johnstone

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The flags of Parkhead
Will be lowered today,
As a Celtic legend
Has been taken away.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Jimmy Johnstone’s memories
Will be forever told,
Of his days in the hoops,
His courage, his goals,

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Beside Jock Stein
Is where he will stand
Beside Doyle, Murdoch,
Peacock & Thompson,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 For the Lord of the Wing,
We will pray for at night
Knowing heaven is adorned
In green & white.
