jerusalem goodbye lyrics – roger whittaker

i be on my way i just can’t stay in this old town,
because it gets me down, oh, how it gets me down.
i must be free.
my mama use to say: i’d end my days down on my knees.
yes, that’s what she believes, cause i do as i pleased.

so, jerusalem goodbye, you’re the covet city from the sky.
but today i walk away again, jerusalem.
oh, jerusalem goodbye, i will love you till the day i die.
but today i must be on my way, jerusalem.
oh ho, ho…

pack upon my back the road to home trailing behind me.
i love this dusty road, oh, i love this dusty road.
it means i’m free.
i hate my mother cry to say goodbye, sorrows arouse her.
but that’s just sorrow begun tomorrow.

so, jerusalem goodbye, you’re the covet city from the sky.
but today i walk away again, jerusalem.
oh, jerusalem goodbye, i will love you till the day i die.
but today i must be on my way, jerusalem.
oh ho, ho…

so, jerusalem goodbye, you’re the covet city from the sky.
but today i walk away again, jerusalem.
oh, jerusalem goodbye, i will love you till the day i die…
