Toepokes and Tragedies (acoustic)

about

A lighter take on our already fairly light Scottish fitba anthem. Mellow and warming.

lyrics

We’ve waited so long for this
Twenty years and more
Your hearts were on your jerseys as the piper marched you out into the fold
For a shot at glory
Our chances stand or fall
We never stopped believing
We suffered with you, we kicked every ball

Belgrade’s a long way from home
From the cities and the towns where you were born
Your bravery got just what it deserved
And you know that we’ll follow you ever more

Go and fight for your flag on the hallowed turf at Hampden
Take it with you to Wembley-oh-oh-oh
From the Forth to the Clydeside, you shall return a hero
You’re in our hearts, you’ll never roam alone.

On that November evening, you were the stuff of dreams
You fought them hard and well, wae a fire the like we have never seen
You’ll be remembered, as those before have been
Like King Kenny before you
James McFadden, David Narey and Jock Stein

Belgrade’s a long way from home
From the cities and the towns where you were born
Your bravery got just what it deserved
And you know that we’ll follow you ever more

Well you fought for your flag from the plains of old Espana
To the mountains of Mexico
From the Forth to the Clydeside, you shall return a hero
You’re in our hearts, you’ll never roam alone.

Belgrade’s a long way from home
From the cities and the towns where you were born
And your bravery got just what it deserved
You know that we’ll follow you ever more

So go and fight for your flag on the hallowed turf at Hampden
Take it with you to Wembley-oh-oh-oh
From the Forth to the Clydeside, you shall return a hero
You’re in our hearts, you’ll never roam alone.
