that city, the city of God

John saw the lion lay down by the lamb
I want to know everything about that land
John saw the day but he did not see
And they wandered in 
From the city of St. John 
Without a dime 
Wearing coats that shined 
Both red and green
Colors from their sunny island
that city, the city of God

John saw the lion lay down by the lamb
I want to know everything about that land
John saw the day but he did not see
In the Spring of Forty-seven,
So the story, it is told,
Old John Sutter went to the mill site
Found a piece of shining gold.

Well, he took it
a look
And he told us what he saw when it's easy to see
It's goin' by the book
It's goin' by the book

There's armies in the cities and the missiles stand
the soul
And we gonna do it a little somethin'

With three subjects like this

Subject one is about a brother by the name of John
Who was sellin'
London by night is a wonderful sight
There is magic abroad in the air
I'm often told that the streets turn to gold
When the moon shines on Circus
John Silver

Saw Johnny Scarecrow make his rounds in his jet-black 'mac 
Which he won't give back
Stole it from a snowman

As I did walk by
John Silver

Saw Johnny Scarecrow make his rounds in his jet-black 'mac 
Which he won't give back
Stole it from a snowman

As I did walk by
reluctantly while mother nature waved her wand
When I awoke I saw before me in the dawn

Chorus:
Aspen gold among the green. Prettiest sight my eyes have ever
London by night is a wonderful sight
There is magic abroad in the air
I'm often told that the streets turn to gold
When the moon shines on Circus
London by night is a wonderful sight
There is magic abroad in the air
I'm often told that the streets turn to gold
When the moon shines on Circus
Bored of the life on the city of gold 
He'd left and let nobody know. 
Gone were the towers he had known from a child, 
Alone with the dream
Bored of the life on the city of gold 
He'd left and let nobody know. 
Gone were the towers he had known from a child, 
Alone with the dream
Bored of the life on the city of gold 
He'd left and let nobody know. 
Gone were the towers he had known from a child, 
Alone with the dream
really true there elephants and lions too in Picadilly Circus?

Walked down by the bathing pond to try and catch some sun.
Saw at least a hundred
Perkins
Sittin' on his stool
Watchin' Butch and Jimmy John
Talkin' loud and playin' pool
The boys from Silver City
Were standin' by the fire
Singin'
Vs 1
I dreamed I had gone to that city
That city where never comes night
And I saw the bright angels in glory
I saw the fair mansions of light
I
stool
Watchin' Butch and Jimmy John
Talkin' loud and playin' pool
The boys from Silver City
Were standin' by the fire
Singin' like they thought
They
city
I looked up and saw the banner big and bold

"Later is now"

Tomorrow is a replay, so tonight I'll try to sleep
I'll deal with it later!
I'll
the town called "The City of Dope"
It couldn't be saved by John the Pope
So go on, live your life of crime
The beat'll keep beating while I say my rhyme
For room and for board
And the backdoor key is a 
19th century civil war sword
Once owned by John Booth
Who misplaced his script 
When he caught
I went out walking 
Through streets paved with gold 
Lifted some stones 
Saw the skin and bones 
Of a city without a soul 
I went out walking
I went out walking
Through streets paved with gold
Lifted some stones
Saw the skin and bones
Of a city without a soul
I went out walking
Under
I went out walking 
Through streets paved with gold 
Lifted some stones 
Saw the skin and bones 
Of a city without a soul 
I went out walking
