While on the bus to Villa Park?

I realise it was a song of some sort before but were we the first team to put our own words to it?

Originally 'When Johnny Comes Marching Home'. Also used for 'Fernando Torres, Liverpool's No 9' and a shitty Ronado song by the Mancs.

Most of the current songs are taken from historic songs

Poor Scouser Tommy - the Orange Lodge song 'The Sash', going back to our religious roots
Fields of Road - the Fields of Athenry
Liverbird upon My Chest - The Green Beret
The Reds are coming up the hill boys - old army song, mainly the pals in world war I including the Kings are coming up the hills boys

Very rarely is the tune not borrowed

another Scottish one - no?



Correct, we certainly can't take credit for Every Other Saturday as it's been sung at a certain club in Scotland since the sixties.

And while we can take the credit for adapting PST for the terraces we can't take credit for the song.

Actually, as 92a mentioned earlier in the thread, it's two songs stuck together. The first part to the tune of the Red River valley was a song sung in the bars of Scotland for many years before it made it's way to Liverpool with amended lyrics as PST in 1976. The second part of course is an amendment of the Sash that was sung on the Kop many years before PST was introduced.

Here's the lyrics to one version ( I'm sure it had a few depending on who was singing) of PST as it was sung in Scotland many years before it made it's way into Liverpool folklore

Gather round and I'll tell you a story
Of a boy who was taken from home
Not to fight for his King or his country
But to fight for the old folks at home

Well they put him in the Highland Division
and they sent him to a far distant land
It was there that this brave Scottish Laddie was killed by and old eytie gun

as he lay on the battlefield dieing
with the blood poring down on his head
as he lay on the battlefield dieing
These were the last words he said

won't you bury me out in the desert
won't you bury me out in this sun
won't you bury me out in the desert
my duty to Scotland is done

Now as you sit by your firesides in Scotland
and this war it is over and done
just remember that brave Scottish soldier
who was killed by that old eytie gun.

And the original lyrics to our version were always "Libyan Sun"

Ah the old religious split in the city, not bad that, most fucking households must have been half catholic and half protestant then ;)
