Now It's Glory 'Round The Fields of Anfield Road : Justice For The 96



Fields of Anfield Road

Outside the Shankly Gates
I heard a Kopite calling
Shankly they have taken you away
But you left a great eleven
Before you went to heaven
Now it's glory round the Fields of Anfield Road.

All round the Fields of Anfield Road
Where once we watched the King Kenny play (and he could play)
We had Heighway on the wing
We had dreams and songs to sing
Of the glory round the Fields of Anfield Road

Outside the Paisley Gates
I heard a Kopite calling
Paisley they have taken you away
You led the great 11
Back in Rome in 77
And the Redmen they are still playing the same way
All round the Fields of Anfield Road
Where once we watched the King Kenny play (and he could play)
We had Heighway on the wing
We had dreams and songs to sing
Of the glory round the Fields of Anfield Road

With the 20th anniversary of the tragic Hillsborough disaster fast approaching, artists John Power of the La’s and Cast fame, Peter Hooton of The Farm, Mick Head of Shack, Nick Kilroe from Echo and the the Bunnymen, James Walsh of Starsailor and Rob Taylor of the Troubadours have joined forces to record a song to commemorate the occasion.

Several Liverpool legends also appear on the track as Kenny Dalglish, Bruce Grobbelaar, Phil Thompson and John Aldridge all participated in the making of the record.

The song will be available to download from April 6, with all proceeds going directly to the Hillsborough Families Support Group.
