Johnny Doyle (The Man Who Loved The Green)

I've travelled round these islands, from shore to shining shore
I've met so many heroes from the team that I adore
I followed Glasgow Celtic, from London to Aberdeen
But I always remember Johnny Doyle the Man who loved the Green.

And Johnny Doyle told me, just be he died
I live for Glasgow Celtic and the Tim Malloys

He came from Ayr United, to join his favourite team
To play for Glasgow Celtic, would fulfil his dreams
Around about St. Patrick's Day, signed by Big Jock Stein
He played only for the jersey, the man who loved the Green


In Europe 1980, he made a gallant bid
He capped a great performance, against Real Madrid
He rose with two defenders, to win the ball so clean
With Sabido and Camacho, was the man who loved the Green


So in your prayers remember, a gallant Celtic son
His young life cut so cruelly in 1981
The 19th of October was a day that I'll be seen
Browsing through my photos, of the man who lived the Green
