Cathie Ryan – The Lights Of San Francisco lyrics

[Verse]
The lights of San Francisco
Shone on the city floor
Joe worked on in the city
‘Til the dawn came around once more
[Verse]
He came from Galway
Came over recently
And Lucy from the USA
Smiled at his naiveté
[Verse]
In the rocky places of his heart
No one had ever seen
Lucy picking cockles
And Lucy planting seeds
[Chorus]
Ohhh oh ohh ohh ohh
[Verse]
Came the marching bands of July
And their silver shadows flew
Ah, two by two, red and blue
Through the summer evening
[Verse]
He said, “All my troubles
Never wander very far
I like to hear music
But I like it on a blue guitar”
[Verse]
“And there is no end to the money
A guy wants to hold in his hand
The sky hung with airplanes
And no peace upon the land”
[Verse]
“And the folks on television
That lie with every breath
And insult you with visions
Of cheap life and cheaper death”
[Chorus]
Ohhh oh ohh ohh ohh
[Verse]
“And there is no home for me now
But I’ll go on loving you
‘Til there is no more music
And the guitar is no longer blue”
