Long Firm Freddie Any sentimental Brit songs about places? (103* d) RE: Any sentimental Brit songs about places? 20 Mar 15


The City of Bath held a competition to find a Song for Bath in 2011. The winner was The Golden City written and composed by Charlie Groves, YouTube performance with photos of Bath here:

The Golden City

When the sun shines on the golden stones.
Then I know that I've come home.
And the streets rise out of history.
I can never be alone.
Let's go down town
By the Avon banks tonight.
Watch this jewel in the valley
Waking up tonight !

The Golden City, where the stones come alive.
The Human City, where my heart has arrived.

You're a medal-winner, a world-class singer
In the great and the good
Or maybe you are a voice like me
Just trying to be heard
Let's join hands and run
Let the music lead the way
To the Party in the City
Turn it up Loud !

The Golden City, where the stones come alive
The Human City, where my heart has arrived.

The Golden City, where the stones come alive
The Human City, where my heart has arrived.

A hundred thousand hearts
Stirring at the sound
The choirs singing out
A hundred thousand times
This is our home.. this is our time

And the waters rise from the ground below
Like they did in ancient times
And I'm seeing greatness all around
In the reason and the rhyme
Let's get carried away
By the Recreation crowd
As the boys start to rise
Victory is ours !

The Golden City, where the stones come alive
The Human City, where my heart has arrived.


Where the stones come alive
The Human City, where my heart has arrived.
