Ibrox Disaster

New Years Bells had been ringing,
All of Scotland was singing,
Sure the old year had died,
And the new one had been born.
As the news of disaster
From Ibrox came spreading,
The news that would cause
A whole nation to mourn

Two great goals had been scored,
In the last dying moments.
Jimmy Johnstone for Celtic,
And for Rangers’ Colin Stein.
Their supporters all cheered them,
With voices of thunder,
Not knowing what waited on staircase 13

66 people died there,
Some in flower of their manhood,
When the fences gave way
And the barriers they bent,
Seasoned Glasgow policemen with their faces all tearstained,
With brave efforts, endeavoured far worse to prevent.

All of Glasgow enjoined them,
For the first time in history.
In the Glasgow cathedral no Billy’s, no Dan’s
But the Old Firm united to pray for their victims,
Of a tragedy set in the memory of man.

New Year Bells had been ringing,
All of Scotland was singing,
Sure the old year had died,
And the new one had been born.
As the news of disaster
From Ibrox came spreading,
The news that would cause
A whole nation to mourn.
