Clock of st. james Lyrics

Clock of st. james by Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Clock of st. james The clock of St James lookin' down through the rain at the city blackened with time
Alleys and the doorways are grim the street lights dimmed from the soot and the grime
The pityful scream from the Second Street bridge
Was drowned by the three o'clock chime
But the clock of St James lookin' down through the rain knows I committed a crime
Clock of St James clock of St James like an eye in the sky lookin' deep in my brain
Seein' my weakness seein' my shame where can I hide from clock of St James

The clock of St James lookin' down through the rain lookin' at a grim pantomime
The body that falls from the Second Street bridge is splash IN the watery slime
The lights of the bridge never touchin' the hand clutchin' a dollar and dime
But the clock of St James looking down through the rain knows I committed a crime
Clock of St James clock of St James...

I run through the city I run through the shadows of the buildings all blackened with time
Alleys and the doorways are grim my hand still clutchin' a dollar and dime
The pityful scream from the Second Street bridge
Was drowned by the three o'clock chime
But the clock of St James looking down through the rain knows I committed a crime
Clock of St James clock of St James...
