The Saints Are Coming

Posted: January 16, 2010 in Music

In honor of the Saints’ BLOWOUT today, and indirectly, still thinking about Haiti, enjoy the sights and sounds from U2 & Greenday’s “The Saints Are Coming.”

Lyrics:
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
It’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
God, I know I’m one

I cried to my daddy on the telephone, how long now
Until the clouds unroll and you come home, the line went
But the shadows still remain since your descent, your descent

I cried to my daddy on the telephone, how long now
Until the clouds unroll and you come home, the line went
But the shadows still remain since your descent, your descent

The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realise there’s no reply
The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realise there’s no reply

A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief, how long now
Until a weather change condemns belief, how long now
When the night watchman lets in the thief, what’s wrong now?

The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realise there’s no reply
The saints are coming, the saints are coming

I say no matter how I try, I realise there’s no reply
I say no matter how I try, I realise there’s no reply
I say no matter how I try, I realise there’s no reply
