Glenbuck Son

Glenbuck Son 

In Glenbuck he was born 
From an Ayrshire mine he did rise 
The man who would change so many lives 
With the Cherry Pickers he played the game 
With Carlisle United he first found fame 

At Deepdale with Tom Finny he did play 
Seven caps for Scotland he was proud to display 
As a manager new tricks to learn 
To Carlisle United he did return 

At Grimsby he cast his net 
The Glenbuck son's destiny was set 
Workington and Huddersfield he did run 
No to Liverpool in '51 

Eight years down the line 
An historic day in December '59 
All would soon fear the famous THIS IS ANFIELD sign 

Promotion in '62 
Champions in '64 
The Glenbuck son, Kopites did adore 
'65 to Wembley in May 
The Glenbuck son took the Cup away 

Now Into Europe he lead his team 
To be Champions of Europe was his dream 
Cheated in Milan, all was doom and gloom 
Now back home in his beloved boot room 
The Glenbuck son would sit in a huddle 
'73 he won a league and UEFA cup double 

May 74 back at Wembley once more 
Malcolm McDonald, what's the score? 
July, the Kopites heads are down 
The Glenbuck son has relinquished his crown 

September 1981 
Rest in peace our Glenbuck son 
Forever we celebrate his memory 
Thank you to the KING BILL SHANKLY
