Elgin City F.C Fan Song

From Neil Grant:

“2 years ago I wrote and recorded a new club song for Ross County FC (who were my local team growing-up) which was overwhelmingly well-received and continues to be played in the stadium during their home matches. Then just last month, another premier league team St Johnstone started playing on of my custom made anthems at their home games, followed by Cowdenbeath FC shortly after (A huge honour!). Due to the success of this project combining my love of football & music, I decided to turn my attention to other Scottish clubs which i hold a soft spot for, one of these being Elgin City FC. The attraction to Elgin City is mainly because the club is not desperately far away from where I was brought up, it’s geographically the most northern Scottish league team and always great to see an ex highland-league team enter the league system. So after several months in my home studio, I composed and recorded an Elgin City FC song! I am satisfied with the result: A catchy sing-a-long style song, taylor-made for the terraces with carefully-researched lyrics spanning the clubs history. (There’s even some subtle bagpipes in the middle section in tribute to the clubs proud Scottish roots)”

Elgin City FC Song

Our club came to be in 1893
Back when we spent all our time in the Highland league
Now we are seen as a renound football team
and they’ll tell you the same: We’re not easy beat!

Our darkest days……oh they seem so far away
But now we’re here to stay…..and we don’t plan to go away…

Waited many long years….now we’re here
The Elgin City boys are near!
Down at borough-Briggs……in Black & white
The Elgin City boys are near!

Bigger clubs can be found with glory-hunters abound
But nothing will compromise….. our loyalty
Aw’ the famous names we’ve had the pleasure to view
Goram and Jinky Johnston…to name a few!

Our darkest days……oh they seem so far away
But now we’re here to stay…..and we don’t plan to go away…

Waited many long years….now we’re here
The Elgin City boys are near!
Down at borough-Briggs……in Black & white
The Elgin City boys are near!
