Celtic Minded

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It is from the Irish famine ships
As the waves beat upon wooden decks,
Our ancestors left old Ireland’s shores
To start a new life on the streets of Glasgow.

To feed poor Catholic families,
To create a Celtic identity
To rid the evil hand of poverty.

Who travelled many a long road,
Following the bhoys in green,
Believing in Glasgow’s Irish team.

Our proud Irish heritage
That we sing of and rejoice
At Parkhead, supporting the bhoys.

The love of a football game,
It was our father’s right
To support the green & white.

From Coatbridge to the Garngad,
To fulfill a longtime dream
And wear the hoops of green.

To the Celtic cross and Claddagh ring
That we are Scottish born
To Ireland’s exiled sons.

The bhoys in the hoops of green
For our faith, we proudly stand
And hold in our heart, the harp of Ireland.
