Subject: RE: Sporting hero songs?
And with line breaks in the right place it looks like this:

A father and son they stood hand in hand
As they watched Wexford play from the back of the stand
And the words that he said, I'll hear when I'm old
IT'S A BEAUTY TO BEHOLD WHEN YOU SEE THE PURPLE AND GOLD

On the purple and gold is my heart and my soul
From the men of today to the heroes of old
Oh the purple and gold is the dream I still hold
It's a beauty to behold when you see the purple and gold

I can still see them now on the All-Ireland Days
And the Rackards stood proud and by God could they play
And the Quigleys stood tall every man brave and bold
It was a privilege I was told to wear the purple and gold.

On the purple and gold is my heart and my soul
From the men of today to the heroes of old
Oh the purple and gold is the dream I still hold
It's a beauty to behold when you see the purple and gold
