football.
The anthem has been personalised by clubs like Celtic, Borussia Dortmund and many others in
Football.
The anthem “You’ll Never Walk Alone” is arguably the most emotional anthem and it is oftenly
amongst the Liverpool supporters before kick-off at every Liverpool match at Anfield.
It has become synonymous to Liverpool football club of England and has travelled around the
world as the Reds have toured Europe and even further afield as five-time European champions.

You’ll Never Walk Alone” was put together by Oscar Hammerstein II and composed by Richard
Rodgers for their musical Carousel. The anthem was released in the USA in 1945.
What are the lyrics to YNWA?
When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
For your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on
,
walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone
Walk on
,
walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone.
