"Sixteen Down" as written by and Gary Michael Louris....
Sunshine stealing stage time
From the moon and stars above
She said leave me alone
I said take me home

Sixteen down living in the hallowed ground
Now the blue has turned to red
All but given up for dead
Ooh, Madeline -- Madeline Breathe
(Can't breathe)

Skiff rocked like a cradle
And the poor girl fell overboard
Rope wrapped around her neck
Tangled in her hair soaked wet

They dragged the stream
The body never to be found
Now the blue has turned to read
All but given up for dead
Ohh, Madeline -- Madeline breathe
(Can't breathe)

My life, made the headlines
Beneath the waterlily sky
She said leave me alone
I said take me home

Sixteen down living in the hallowed ground
Now the blue has turned to
All but given up for dead
Madeline -- Madeline Breathe...
