"Joan Of Arc" as written by and Andrew/de Donatis Mc Cluskey....
Little catholic girl is fallin' in love
A face on a page, a gift from above
She should've known better than to give her heart
She should've known better than to ever part without me, without me
I gave her everything that I ever owned
I think she understood it but she never spoke
She shouldn't oughta try to be that way
She shouldn't have to go there every day without me, without me
Now listen to us good and listen well
Listen to the song and everything we tell
We should've known better than to give her away
We should've known better to this very day, without me, without me
Listen, [show it all], all you gotta do
Say the right words and I'll be coming through
Hold you in my arms and take you right away
Now she's turned away to another land
We never understood it why she gave her hand
She shouldn't oughta promise, ''cause it's just pretend
I know she doesn't mean it and she'll leave again without me, without me
Without me, without me

    General CommentThis song made me go out and get a book on Joan and learn a little about her. The simple music, building in intensity, and Pauls' voice reaching, almost pleading for permission to enter your hearts and minds make this a truly powerful song.

    General CommentHi Major Valor, just a minor clarification. It was Andy McCluskey not Paul Humphreys on vocals for this enchanting song.
    Anyway, great song!

    General CommentThese lyrics are incorrect. The lyrics above are actually for "Maid of Orleans".

    General CommentJoan Of Arc.
    Little catholic girl is fallin' in love
    A face on a page, a gift from above
    She should've known better than to give her heart
    She should've known better than to ever part without me, without me
    I gave her everything that I ever owned
    I think she understood it but she never spoke
    She shouldn't oughta try to be that way
    She shouldn't have to go there every day without me, without me

    Now listen to us good and listen well
    Listen to us all and everything we tell
    We should've known better than to give her away
    We should've known better to this very day, without me, without me
    Listen Joan of Arc, all you gotta do
    Say the right words and I'll be coming through
    Hold you in my arms and take you right away
    Now she's turned away to another land
    We never understood it why she gave her hand
    She shouldn't oughta promise, cause it's just pretend
    I know she doesn't mean it and she'll leave again without me, without me
    Without me, without me
