The Holy Goalie (Artur Boruc)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A Parkhead pilgrim
Stood at the Holy Ground
Watching the Glasgow Celtic
Absorbing the songs and the sounds.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He travelled to the east end of Glasgow
Wearing his colours of green & white.
He walked through the gates of Paradise
Heralding Brother Walfrid’s pride.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 From the Jock Stein stand he witnessed
The return of John Thomson’s spirit,
As the Holy Goalie stood proud and defiant
For the faithful of the Glasgow Celtic.



Editor’s note :
