The sun it fell down
On the rising sea
To where the bishop outgrew his pew
(?) was a man
Got his hands all over me
Lets hope he don’t put em on you

My vision welled
Then overflowed
To spill on down to the green grass
The chapel bell rose back then tolled
Go on a tollin’
Till the tollin’ passed

(?) unlocks the door
She’s sixty-four
She steps down into the street
Oh, the city sounds
Like a one-man band
And the bricks turn blue beneath her feet

The queen she laid down
With the fiddler’s son
But it was the words she used to seek
She said to him
“Let’s go down
To where the grass is tall and brown
You can lay that rhythm down
Right on me
Right on me
Right on me”
Yeah uh huh

Wipe your eyes child
With your head down low
Yes I believe in time to grow son
Look around
There’s a big old world
A stone’s throw from lonesome
Lonesome
Lonesome

    Lyric CorrectionThese are horrible, so bad that I am rewriting this whole thing...

    The sun it fell down,
    On the rising sea
    Where (maybe 'when'?) the bishop outgrew his pew...
    Big money mans
    Got his hands all over me
    Lets hope he dont put em on you

    My fishing wells,
    They overflowed,
    spilled on down to the green grass
    The chapel bell rose back then tolled
    Go on a-tollin'
    Till the tollin' passed...

    Maggie Stuffs(?) unlocks the door
    Shes sixty-four
    She steps down into the street
    Oh, the city sounds
    Like a one-man band
    And the bricks turn blue beneath her feet

    The queen she laid down,
    With the fiddlers son,
    But it was the words she used to see...
    She said to him,
    Lets go down,
    To where the grass is tall and brown...
    You can lay that rhythm down,
    Right on me
    Right on me
    Right on me
    Yeah nah nah

    Wipe your eyes child,
    With your head down low,
    Yes I believe in time you'll grow some...
    Look around,
    Theres a big old world,
    A stones throw from lonesome...
    Lonesome
    Lonesome
