ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY [Not Karaokied]

Click to Listen

PUT ON THE SCARF OF WHITE AND BLUE AND GOLD
AND HOIST THE LEEDS FLAG ON THE POLE
WE'LL MARCH TO BATTLE LIKE IN DAYS OF OLD
TO QUENCH THIS YEARNING IN OUR SOUL

THOUGH WE GAVE OUR HEARTS TO LEEDS UNITED
OUR HANDS AND VOICE ARE FREE OF CHAINS
SO WE'LL MARCH TOGETHER
AND WE'LL SING OUR SONGS
WITH A VERVE THAT NEVER WANES

SO SALUTE AND HOIST THOSE FLAGS OF WHITE
RAISE YOUR VOICES SING FOR LEEDS
WE'LL MARCH TOGETHER
AND WE'LL FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY

SO SALUTE AND HOIST THOSE FLAGS OF WHITE
RAISE YOUR VOICES SING FOR LEEDS
WE'LL MARCH TOGETHER
AND WE'LL FIGHT AND FIGHT AND FIGHT
ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY

AND THROUGH THE AGES AS THE BANNERS FLY
AS WE SEND A MESSAGE TO THE FOE
A RAGING RIVER THAT COULD NOT RUN DRY
AND THERE'S NO DAM COULD STEM ITS FLOW

THEN IN THE BLUE SKY HEAR ANGELIC VOICES
AMID THE WHITE CLOUDS OVERHEAD
ITS OUR BRANCH FROM HEAVEN
OVER LEEDS ELEVEN
SINGING BETTER DEAD THAN RED

SO SALUTE AND HOIST THOSE FLAGS OF WHITE
RAISE YOUR VOICES SING FOR LEEDS
WE'LL MARCH TOGETHER
AND WE'LL FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY

SO SALUTE AND HOIST THOSE FLAGS OF WHITE
RAISE YOUR VOICES SING FOR LEEDS
WE'LL MARCH TOGETHER
AND WE'LL FIGHT AND FIGHT AND FIGHT
ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY

NOW ALL THE BAD DAYS SHALL BE BRUSHED ASIDE
THE SLEEPING GIANT IS AWAKE
THE YORKSHIRE ARMY BUILT OF GRIT AND PRIDE
WILL BUILD WITH EVERY STEP WE TAKE

AND IF THE LEEDS FLAG FLYS ABOVE THE CITY
THE RIVER AIRE STILL FLOWS ALONG
WHEN I KEEP MY DATE AT THOSE PEARLY GATES
THEN BILL AND DON WILL HEAR THIS SONG

SO SALUTE AND HOIST THOSE FLAGS OF WHITE
RAISE YOUR VOICES SING FOR LEEDS
WE'LL MARCH TOGETHER
AND WE'LL FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY

SO SALUTE AND HOIST THOSE FLAGS OF WHITE
RAISE YOUR VOICES SING FOR LEEDS
WE'LL MARCH TOGETHER
AND WE'LL FIGHT AND FIGHT AND FIGHT
ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY.

This song was written for the CL final, a recording studio said they would
record it complete with brass band and video.

Sadly, history tells we lost at the semi stage so it never got recorded.

See the song "The Leeds Salute" to see, erm..how we salute.
