Lay Your Body Down (Goodbye Philadelphia)

Lyricist:     Composer:

"Goodbye Philadelphia"



Just like Philadelphia
Freedom means a lot to me
In between the place I`ve been
And where I`m goin`

I can see America
Tryin` not to show her age
Even thought the winds have changed
Keep on blowin`

And I would lay your body down and rock your tears away
But it`s much too late for now to be like yesterday
And the time is running out and we still have to say
Goodbye


Remember Philadelphia
When the world was young and warm
So in love and living for
Everything new

But I know Philadelphia
The winter wind will slowly take
Your heart and soul until it makes
Nothing of you

And I would lay your body down and rock your tears away
But it`s much too late for now to be like yesterday
And the time is running out and we still have to say
Goodbye


Flash a peace sign take a bow
Though we may not know it now
Things are never gonna be the same
Here on Seventh Avenue
I tip my old top hat to you
I hope you find somebody who
Will love you like I do

And I would lay your body down and rock your tears away
But it`s much too late for now to be like yesterday
And the time is running out and we still have to say
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

Goodbye Philadelphia
