Sally MacLennane - The Pogues

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

'cause 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

'cause 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

'cause 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
