On The Way To Heaven

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I was 7 years old
When I first went to heaven
Walked the Walton Breck Road
To cheer the Anfield 11

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Wrapped up in me red scarf
And feeling so proud
Singing the songs
I was one of the crowd

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Kop filled up quickly
Just like a red sea
Their banners and flags
Rolled out endlessly

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’d never seen passion
Like this in my life
And when Shankly walked out
Their roars filled the skies

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Redman our heroes
We’d cheer them all on
From Rowdy and Cally
To Ian St John

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Hughes full of running
And the wings of Heighway
Pass the ball and push forward
The Liverpool Way

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The words of the anthem
You’ll Never Walk Alone
Went straight to my heart
And there found a home

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 I clutched my Dad’s hand
And then looked in his eyes
The words would not come
And me Dad, he just smiled

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Now that day was my Baptism
And my faith has not strayed
Not once has temptation
Ever lulled me away

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 They have filled up my heart
Like an overflowing cup
And when I’ve been down
They have lifted me up

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 From the steps of my travels
And the footprints I’ve left
For those who have followed say
“There goes a true Red….”
