'If It's Football, It's Vital'

'Abide Pompey'



Maybe we can have this to balance the dragons having 'their anthem'.

Hear 'Abide Pompey' from the myspace page here.

The lyrics to 'Abide Pompey'.

Pompey my life, not just a football team,
'Til death us part, with you I live our dream,
Onward we conquer, soon the world will see,
Oh Portsmouth Football Club, Abide with me!

Facing undaunted changing ways of fate,
Still shall your anthems never once abate,
We in these thousands praise your victory,
This fervent multitude abides with thee.

Down generations thus the faith will last,
From man to son the torch is burning passed,
Chimes sung to echo down the years that flee,
Stand we still steadfast so Abide with me.

Fratton our shrine to glories yet untold,
Ever the passion growing never old,
Let this fierce tumult set your spirit free,
Join now our worship and Abide Pompey!

Not really my cup of tea I am afraid. It's tooooooo slow. I am not saying it should be some hardcore speed or anything but just a little faster. I think paint would dry faster than the tempo they have gone at. Just my thoughts though

It is an old hymn this is how they all sound. Look back at an earlier entyr wiyj the modern 'Hurry up Harry'.

I was a good old Christian boy till the age of 17 when regular church attendance was changed to the public house. I can honestly say that I have never heard Abide with me sung at such a slow tempo. Russell - I agree with land of hope and glory, it has a much more Portsmouth feel to it. Or maybe Rule Britanania?
