Lyrics
Always a Glasgow boy (2003)

You can take the boy out of Glasgow
But you'll never ever take Glasgow away from the boy
When he speaks of his hometown Glasgow
Watch his eyes turn rivers into oceans of industrial rain

He commissioned me to write him a melody
For the boy who never left Glasgow

You can take the boy out of Glasgow
But you'll never ever take Glasgow away from the boy
When he speaks of his motherland Glasgow
It's as though the wind blows and carries him away
He knows he'll be home soon

Take a billabong down to Glasgow

Could it be time
See how the years have treated her
Could it be time my friend
Farewell to fairweather
If only for a while

Take a billabong down to Glasgow

You can take the boy out of Glasgow
But you'll never take Glasgow
Away from the boy
Away from the boy

Always a Glasgow boy
