I wish I was in Glasgow, with some good old friends of mine
Some good and rough companions, And some good old smooth red wine
We'd talk about the old days, And the old town's sad decline
And drink to the boys on the road
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

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

My grannie brought the family up, from the time we lost our mum
My father was a good man, He made me what I am
There was always bread and butter, There was sometimes even jam
And there was so much to learn along the road
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
