[Verse 1]
C                                            G
There’s an easy place down Gallowgate to the East End of Glasgow
C                                    G
It’s a ballroom of remembrance and a disco
F                                      C
Where the shooting stars light up the fresco
F                                  C       G
Where the last ones and the lovers go … to carry on
C                                        G
We sang about the Nicky Tams in the back room of the Scotia
C                                        G
We drank sweet wines and called for neon pints of Fidel Castro
F                           C
Till it was time to fly to dreamland
F                               C                       G
Out of Bairds, up the stairs to hell or to heaven we’d go

[Chorus]
             C                              F
Come all you dreamers hear the sound of the Barrows humming
             C              G7
Come all you dreamers to Barrowland
             C                         F
Hear Mags McIvor and the ghost of the GayBirds calling
             C                  G7
Come all you dreamers to Barrowland

[Verse 2]
C                                       G
The Lassies of the Broomielaw in their Cuban Heels are dancing
C                                       G
Here comes Our Lady of the Clyde and there goes Jinky Johnston
F                                         C         G
They’ve come back to rock and roll in the church of ceilidh
F                            C       G
To waltz beneath the carousel of healing
F                   C              G
To jitterbug and boogie the night away

[Chorus]
             C                              F
Come all you dreamers hear the sound of the Barrows humming
             C              G7
Come all you dreamers to Barrowland
             C                         F
Hear Mags McIvor and the ghost of the GayBirds calling
             C      G7            C
Come all you dreamers to Barrowland
        C
To Barrowland
