​Sandy Bell's Broadstreet

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album On A Wing And A Prayer (1981).

I'm sure that the way you're laughing
No it doesn't mean that you're feeling good
Well it's a lovely morning and we should be happy
Just a little sunshine and it could be so good

Sandy Bell he was a good man
But they strung him up on the gallows tree
And down on Broad Street they're all crawling down on their knees
But I won't go down they don't frighten me

Caledonia you've got me running
You've got me losing a lot of sleep
Someone's not too happy about the way I'm singing
And now it seems he's stinging everyone he meets

Sandy Bell he was a good man
But they strung him up on the gallows tree
And down on Broad Street they're all crawling down on their knees
But I won't go down they don't frighten me

Take them all across the water
And let them bathe in the silver stream
And when this game is over
And maybe they'll give me back all my dreams

Sandy Bell he was a good man
But they strung him up on the gallows tree
And down on Broad Street they're all crawling down on their knees
But I won't go down they don't frighten me
