Lyrics Sally MacLennane

Well Jimmy played harmonica in the pub where I was born
He played it from the night time to the peaceful early morn
He soothed the souls of psychos and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning
Now Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the Elephant Man broke strong men's necks when he'd had too many powers
So sad to see the grieving of the people that he's leaving
And he took the road for
God knows in the morning
We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
Sad to say
I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cos I'm going far away
I'd like to think of me returning when I can to the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane
The years passed by the times had changed
I grew to be a man
I learned to love the virtues of sweet
Sally MacLennane
I took the jeers and drank the beers and crawled back home at dawn
And ended up a barman in the morning
I played the pump and took the hump and watered whiskey down
I talked of whores and horses to the men who drank the brown
I heard them say that Jimmy's making money far away
And some people left for heaven without warning
We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
Sad to say
I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cos I'm going far away
I'd like to think of me returning when I can to the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane
When Jimmy came back home he was surprised that they were gone
He asked me all the details of the train that they went on
Some people they are scared to croak
But Jimmy drank until he choked
And he took the road for heaven in the morning
We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him a song of times long gone though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
Sad to say
I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cos I'm going far away
I'd like to think of me returning when I can to the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane
