FORTRESS ELLAND ROAD [Not Karaokied]

Click to Listen

The mist crept down the river Aire valley
Whisps of frost still hugged the ground
Saw a multitude of people so ask them ,"where you bound"?
An old man took me by the shoulder
Pointed me to a distant light
Said march with us it'll change your life
We're off to see the mighty whites.

On the road the people singing
On every street the masses flowed
See the glory, feel the power
Down at Fortress Elland Road

Outside pubs the whites were singing
From dark green buses young fans cheer
Shedites set the tin roof ringing
We are the people who know no fear
In a city that's the pride of yorkshire
Aliens come dressed in red
All hope departs and spirits die
In the shadow of the mighty Shed

If defeat should ever threaten
You would hear the Elland Road roar
Stood together side by side
We are United to the core
Neil climbs on the barrier high
Cue Shep draped in the Union Jack
They yell, "Leeds Fans will never die"
The whites all Yell  ATTACK ATTACK!!

On the road the people singing
On every street the masses flowed
See the glory, feel the power
Down at Fortress Elland Road

Now you see the Shedite veterans
And new recruits stood side by side
A culture built around our idols
In a city that was built on pride
Still the people keep on singing
Arm in arm to share the load
Stood firm beneath a Yorkshire sky
Building Fortress Elland road.

On the road the people singing
On every street the masses flowed
See the glory, feel the power
Down at Fortress Elland Road

Prices soar, the banks to please
PC Plod wont let us stand
But they'll never bring us to our knees
We're still the greatest in the land.

On the road the people singing
On every street the masses flowed
See the glory, feel the power
Down at Fortress Elland Road
