Felt I should rise up and soar high today
beyond the clouds let the world slip away 
The chill in your bones is just echoes of fear
glide on the wind and you’re right outta here – outta here

Suzanne another great troubadour’s gone
Leonard has flown to that high tower of song
Leonard spoke to me in tongues of the past
sing Hallelujah tonight in Belfast-in Belfast

Sing me the Sisters Of Mercy
sing me the bird that has flown  
Sing me sweet Jesus we’re going to hell
rolling back home on our own-on our own

Shadows are walking the candles are brief
This foolish old tale’s just an idiot's grief
The hour’s running on but it’s not finished yet
Leonard said wayfaring stranger don’t quit.

The Groovemeister's calling come lend him your ear
tonight we hit lucky for Bluegrass and beer
Bluegrass and beer that's as good as it gets
Leonard said, Hank Williams has no regrets  – no regrets

Sing me the Sisters Of Mercy
Sing me the bird that has flown 
Sing me sweet Jesus we’re going to hell
Rolling back home on our own-on our own
