Lyrics

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