Well Jimmy played harmonica in the pub where I was born
He played from the nighttime to the peaceful early morn
He soothed the souls of sychos and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning
But Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
the Elephant man broke strong mens necks he had to many powers
So sad to see the grieving of the people that I'm leaving
And he took the road for god knows in the morning

 We walked in to the station in the rainWe
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 must be on me way
So buy me beer and whiskey cos I'm going far away
I'd like to think I'll be 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 Sally MacLennane
I took their jeers and drank their 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 whisky down
I talked of whores and horses to the men of who drank the brown
I heard them say thats Jimmy's makin' money far away
some people left for heaven without warning


1 line break

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

Chorus......x 2 last line 3 times
