A Celtic Scarf Fell From The Sky






A Celtic Scarf Fell From The Sky           August 2, 2017





 A Celtic scarf fell from the sky

I put it on my neck and wondered why

I was taken to a special place up high

To join Celtic bhoys in the sky

There was a big cup at the door

Many trophies on show on a green and white floor

Jinky was there with Danny Doyle by his side

Bobby Murdoch was smiling with pride

Jock Stein stood beside the big man

He said I am not the big man here

Celtic heroes from the past wearing Celtic scarfs

Tommy Gemmel, Ronnie Simpson, Joe McBride put on a show

Johnny Thompson smiled with Charlie Tully by his side

Celtic players wearing green sang the Celtic song with pride

Willie Maley, Jimmy McGrory wearing Celtic green

I met a bhoy called Bertie, said sad to hear you passed

He said I still live downstairs,you'll see me everywhere

The real big man showed his class

He invited us all to mass

The music from the heavens

You will never walk alone

The big man said he loves the Gallowgate

Especially Glasgow Green

Tears and smiles when I had to leave

My Celtic scarf and my trip of green

A Celtic scarf fell from the sky

I put it on my neck and wondered why

I was taken to a special place up high

To join Celtic bhoys up in the sky
