Words From the Past

Words from The Past December 1, 2013

 In the streets of Glasgow I heard a new song
 Was all about Ireland and things that were wrong
 The young girl that was singing held her head high
 She looked to the heavens with a glint in her eye
 She sang songs of Ireland and the team that she loved
 With music from the heavens she truly did love
 With a voice of an angel she delivered her words
 The heroes gone she mentioned them all
 She sang about Collins and mentioned Rockall
 So lovely to hear, she remembered them all
 This angel in Glasgow was sent from above
 She sang peace for Ireland with the wings of the dove
 She sang about Bobby and the men of ten
 When she finished her song they said please sing again
 She graced Glasgow streets and left like a flash
 She's still in my memory this girl from the past
 In the streets of Glasgow I heard a new song
 Was all about Ireland and things that were wrong
