Well Jimmy played harmonica in the pub where I was born
He played it from the night time to the peaceful early morn
He soothed the souls of psychos and men who had a horn
And they looked very happy in the morning

Now Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the elephant man broke strong men's necks
When he'd had too many Powers,
So sad to see grieving of the people that he's leaving
And he took the road for God knows in the morning

We walked him to the station in the rain
We kissed him as we put him on the train
And we sang him song of times long gone
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again
(Far away) sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey cos I'm going far away
(far away) I'd like to think I'll be returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane.

The years passed by the times had changed
I grew to be a man
I learned to love the virtues of sweet Sally MacLennane
O took the jeers and drank the beers and crawled back home
At dawn
And ended up a barman in the morning
I played the pump and took the hump and watered whiskey down
I talked of whores and horses to the men who drank the brown
I heared them say them say that Jimmy's making money far away
Some people left for heaven without warning

When Jimmy came back home he was surprised
that they were gone
He asked me all the details of the train that they went on
Some people they are scared to croak
But Jimmy drank until he choaked
And took the road to heaven in the morning.
