Lyrics and chords as used by Iain MacKintosh (Capo on 3rd fret)


I (G)wish I was in Glasgow with some good old (D)friends of (C)mine

Some (G)good old rough com(Em)panions, some (G)good old (D)smooth red (C)wine

We would (G)talk about the old days and the (Em)old town's (D)sad de(C)cline

And (G)drink to the (D)boys on the (C)road (G)



That (D)good old place I (D7)miss so much now (C)sees some better (G)days

Yet (C)still we talk a(G)bout it as we (Em)go our (G)separate (Em)ways

(G)Glasgow gave me (Em)more than it (G)ever (D)took a(C)way

And pre(G)pared me for (D7)life on the (C)road (G)


(G)I was born in Glasgow, in the East End (D)of the (C)town

I would (G)take you there and (Em)show you but they (G)pulled the (D)old place (C)down

And (G)when I think about it oh it (Em)always (D)makes me (C)frown

They (G)bulldozed it (D)all to make a (C)road (G)




(G)I belong to Glasgow, that's how the (D)old song (C)ran

Ask (G)anyone who's (Em)been there – (G)you will (D)under(C)stand

You can (G)take the man from Glasgow but not the (Em)Glasgow (D)from the (C)man

It pre(G)pares you for (D)life on the (C)road (G)




Additional verse / alternative last verse (not used by Iain MacKintosh)


My (G)grannie brought the family up from the time we (D)lost our (C)mum

My (G)father was a (Em)good man and he (G)made me (D)all I (C)am

There was (G)always bread and butter, there was (Em)sometimes (D)even (C)jam

And there was (G)so much to (D)learn along the (C)road
