Once In Our Dear Liverpool City

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Once In Our Dear Liverpool City
Came a man to Anfield’s call
There he built a team of champions
All in red they conquered all
With Big Ron Yeats to lead the side
Bill Shankly our faith and pride

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He came down from Glenbuck Scotland
With a dream and a legacy to forge
Lo his home will e’re be Anfield
And his kin the kopites all
Liverpool his chosen side
Bill Shankly’s joy and pride

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And our eyes at last will see him
Where he waits in his red scarf
Guiding reds to life eternal
Playing there on Heaven’s Park
And yea he leads the kopites home
To the place none walk alone
To the place none walk alone.
