"My home town Gourock" (Song)



"My home town Gourock"
 I would get up in the morning could feel the morning chill
The smell of breakfast cooking just gave me a thrill
My mum was such a darling she took good care of me
She loved being in her kitchen as she looked out at the sea


Chorus
I sing about my country it’s where I did abide
I come from Bonnie Scotland down there by the Clyde
The river ran right by my house the beach and the rocks
I’m proud to say that I was raised in my home town called Gourock


After my breakfast I would go down on the dike
I would go for a cycle so I would grab my bike
I would head towards the promenade the sandpit and the pools
I loved the summer holidays didn’t have to go to school



Chorus
I sing about my country it’s where I did abide
I come from Bonnie Scotland down there by the Clyde
The river ran right by my house the beach and the rocks
I’m proud to say that I was raised in my home town called Gourock

 
What a joy to grow up by the ocean and the sea
I remember Guy Fawkes well I remember Halloween
I had the best of friends and I loved them all and miss
Since moving from my home town I can only reminisce


Chorus
I sing about my country it’s where I did abide
I come from Bonnie Scotland down there by the Clyde
The river ran right by my house the beach and the rocks
I’m proud to say that I was raised in my home town called Gourock

 
The memories of my home town are always on my mind
The people that I worked with were forever kind
However, I live in Canada two thousand miles apart
I want to let my friends know they are always on my heart



Chorus
I sing about my country it’s where I did abide
I come from Bonnie Scotland down there by the Clyde
The river ran right by my house the beach and the rocks
I’m proud to say that I was raised in my home town called Gourock
I’m proud to say that I was raised in my home town called Gourock
