"The Joyful Kilmarnock Blues" as written by and Charles Stobo/reid Reid....
I'm not going to talk about doubts and confusion
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
I'd never been to Ayrshire
I hitched down one saturday
Sixty miles to Kilmarnock
To see Hibernian play
The day was bright and sunny
But the game I won't relay
And there was no Kilmarnock Bunnet
To make me want to stay

But I'm not going to talk about it
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
When I started walking at Wishaw
My eyes obscured my vision
After five miles on my way
I began to learn to listen

I walked through the country
I walked through the town
I held my head up
And I didn't look down
The question doesn't matter
The answer's always "aye"
The best view of all
Is where the land meets the sky.

    General CommentI just think its a really great song, dont know what its about but to me its being totally caught up in something, reaching the stage where you realise you dont care what other people think, and you feel something so strongly it feels like you know it without even having to back it up. Head over heels

    General CommentActually, its just about either craig or charlie missing his lift back to Edinburgh from Rugby Park and having to walk all the way back home.

    General CommentIf the game was at Rugby Park, why does he start walking at Wishart?

    General CommentGah! Obviously I mean "Wishaw"; my fingers ran away from me. SongMeanings needs an "edit" function.
