The Sky Blue Lament

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In the hearts of the sky blue faithful
Weigh the heavy boots of discontent
Ghostly chants still echo from Highfield Road
And the inevitable fall from grace

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 In the hearts of the sky blue faithful
Hope wears an ungainly badge
Upon the chest of the football fraternity
The devoted stand to the test

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 In the hearts of the sky blue faithful
The wounds of defeat still ache
Throughout years of troubles and tribulations
Along the hard road winding back

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In the hearts of the sky blue faithful
Lie the unrequited prayers
Saint Jude embraces the laden believers
And guides them to their daily bread

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 In the hearts of the sky blue faithful
Fortune plays her card
Tendered wagers on seasoned loyalties
And the supporters’ pound of flesh

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 In the hearts of the sky blue faithful
Remain memories of former glory
The west end legends, Coventry’s crusade
And the conquest of Wembley’s Holy Grail

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 In the hearts of the sky blue faithful
On the field at Rowley’s Green
The impassioned chorus of the resolute sing
Their haunting heavenly harmony

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 In the hearts of the sky blue faithful
The final whistle is yet to toll
The ardent believers shan’t be defeated
They’ll fight on ‘til the game is won

It’s a hard life being a sky blues supporter!
