The Shankly Gates

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ve seen the sun set in many a place
I’ve seen the moon light many a road
Yet when I stand before the Shankly Gates
Lord only then will I know I’m home

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’ve kissed the fickle lips of glory
And made her willin’ heart me own
But when I see the Shankly Gates
Lord then I’ll know at last I’m home

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A dreamin’ fool I’ve chased the stars
And in me time the sadness known
But when I’m near the Shankly Gates
Lord then my ragged heart is home

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Of heaven’s treasures no more I ask
Than peaceful heart forgiven soul
And there beside the Shankly Gates
Lord lead me to for then I’m home.
