Red, Red Mersey

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Beyond the Red, Red Mersey
Our Liverbird shields us all
From the pain and the suffering
This world has had to endure.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Our lads you see have gone away
Fighting in such a bloody war
But holding onto precious memories
Of hearing the mighty Kop roar.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And they will return soon I hope
No more tears will flow
For they will sail on the Red, Red Mersey
Singing songs as they row.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When they return the crowd will salute
And offer their thanks for their part
The world will be free as the stars shine brightly
With the Liverbird etched into their hearts.

Notes

For a friend who has just come home from the Gulf. :o)
