Billy Connolly – Glasgow lyrics

Oh I was born in Glasgow, near the centre of the town,
I wouldd take you there and show you, but they've pulled the building down.
And when I think about it, it always makes me frown,
They bulldozed it all to make a road.

[Chorus:]

And that great old place I miss so much has seen much better days,
And still we talk about it as we go our separate ways.
Oh, but Glasgow gave me more than it ever took away,
And prepared me for life on the road.

[Repeat chorus]

My granny was a cleaner, my grandad drove a tram,
My father an engineer, made me all I am.
They have seen the city come and go, still they give a damn,
There's so much to learn along the road.

And Glasgow gave me more than it ever took away,
And prepared me for life on the road.
