John D Lewis, the artist who wrote and sang this song writes on the website:
The day Sir Bobby died there was a song in my head. I don’t know why, how … or where it came from. Within 30 minutes, the words and music were complete and a few hours later, it was recorded.
It’s NOT mournful: it’s a positive memory of Sir Bobby, a song about the man and one of the many things Sir Bobby and I shared – a lifelong love for Newcastle United … The Toon.
Every penny that is raised through the sale of the song will be passed to the Foundation.
God Bless you Bobby. Rest In Peace.
John D. Lewis
Its a very catchy and hopeful song. There is a bit about the Toons winning the Championship and FA Cup that will bring a wry smile.
