Red Scarf

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ve wrapped up my dreams for many a year
In a scarf of richest red
And rich those dreams oh rich with life
Oh warm as passion’s bed

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But memories cannot tend the skin
Yet charm the weary heart
Despair and doubt are cast aside
And sorrow has no dart

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The old songs always find a voice
A willing host to sing
A hero’s name upon the lips
His image back to bring

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Here on the terrace home at last
Beneath the Shankly Gates
‘Tis here I find eternal rest
And where I know my father waits.
