Ah wanna tell ya 'bout a girl
You know, she lives in room twenty-nine
Why, why? That's the one right up top a mine
I start to cry, I start to cry

Oh, I hear her walking
Walking barefoot cross the floorboards
All through this lonesome night
I hear her crying too
Hot-tears come splashing down
Leaking through the cracks
Down upon my face
I catch 'em in my mouth
Catch 'em in my mouth
Catch 'em in my mouth
I catch 'em in my mouth
Walk and cry, walk and cry
Walk and cry, I'll walk and cry

From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity

I read her diary on her sheets
Scrutinizing every little bit of dirt
Tore out a page and stuffed it inside my shirt
I fled outta the window
And shinning it down the vine
Outta her nightmare
And back into mine
Mine, oh mine

From her to eternity
From her to eternity
Cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry

She's wearing those blue stockings, I bet
And standing like this with my ear to the ceiling
Listen I know it must sound absurd
But I can hear the most melancholy sound I ever heard
Walk and cry, walk and cry
Kneel and cry, kneel and cry

From her to eternity
From her to eternity

Oh tell me why?
Oh tell me why? Why? Why? Why?
Oh tell me why?
Don't tell me a lie
Why the ceiling still shakes? Shake, shake, shake
And all the fixtures turn to serpents and snakes?
This desire to possess her is a wound
And it's nagging at me like a shrew
But I know, that to possess her
Is, therefore, not to desire her

Oh, then that little girl would just have to go, go
From her to eternity
Oh, go, go, go
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
From her to eternity
