The Old Terraced Steps Have Disappeared

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I am coming home to Paradise my friend,
For it has been many a year since I have seen
My boyhood heroes play at Parkhead,
Wearing the proud emerald green.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I will say goodbye to a foreign land
That welcomed and adopted me for a good 25 years.
But I look forward to walk once more, down the Gallowgate
And be welcomed home to the Parkhead cheer.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I leave behind a plentitude of memories
That I will store away in my old Glaswegian heart.
But it’s the memories of traveling to Parkhead with my father
That leads me home, to Celtic Park.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The old terraced steps may have disappeared,
And the days of the Jungle have long since gone.
But I shall take a seat in the Lisbon Lions Stand
Where the tradition of Celtic lives in culture and song.
