The Red Scarf

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Bill Shankly loved the auld red scarf
A Scotsman proud he said
Like Chairman Mao and Moses
I stand before a mighty sea of Red

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Its colours hold the dreams of all
Each heart in every thread
And like a banner carried boldly forth
Flown proud above each head

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Gripped in the hearts of kings and paupers
The hands of rich and poor
It wraps Reds in the glory of
The prayers and songs of those before

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Its heartbeat is the fields of Anfield
Tho its travelled far from home
Draped the bars of Dortmund Paris
And when Paisley conquered Rome

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 In Istanbul Byzantium
The pool rose from the dead
The walls of Milanese resistance
All breached by Rafas glorious Reds

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 A symbol of immortal love
A badge declaring faith
It tells the story of this club
In history writes its page

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 And when a copper with his foot
Coldly kicked one such scarf aside
Shankly growled Remember son its not just a scarf,
This scarf is someones life.
