The Ballad of Alan Morton

#1 by ulsterman , Mon Nov 01, 2010 3:18 pm

He was a proud young Airdrie lad,
Alan Morton was his name
He played for Glasgow Rangers,
the left wing was his game
The Ibrox crowd, they loved him so,
they crowned him King of all
And every time he scored a goal,
they sang him ‘Follow on.’

Now Alan played his heart away
in Rangers’ Royal Blue
And then one famous Saturday
in Scotland’s darker hue
Young Alan laid the English low,
the legend it was born
And every time he scored a goal,
we sang him ‘Follow on'

And so that is the story
my father said to me
He said ‘Now son when you’re a man,
will you do one thing for me
Each Saturday down Ibrox way,
though Alan’s dead and gone
Every time the Glasgow Rangers score,
will you sing them Follow on’.
