    Song Lyrics / J / Jeff Buckley / Farewell Angelina Lyrics
    (b. dylan)
    From wfmu's 1993 compilation they came, they played, they blocked the driveway. this song was originally performed by bob dylan and joan baez.

    Farewell angelina
    The bells of the crown
    Are being stolen by bandits
    I must follow the sound
    The triangle tingles
    And the trumpets play slow
    Farewell angelina
    The sky is on fire
    And i must go.

    There's no need for anger
    There's no need for blame
    There's nothing to prove
    Ev'rything's still the same
    Just a table standing empty
    By the edge of the sea
    Farewell angelina
    The sky is trembling
    And i must leave.

    The jacks and the queens
    Have forsaked the courtyard
    Fifty-two gypsies
    Now file past the gaurds
    In the space where the deuce
    And the ace once ran wild
    Farewell angelina
    The sky is folding
    I'll see you in a while.

    See the cross-eyed pirates sitting
    Perched in the sun
    Shooting tin cans
    With a sawed-off shotgun
    And the neighbors they clap
    And they cheer with each blast
    Farewell angelina
    The sky's changing color
    And i must leave fast.

    King kong, little elves
    On the rooftops they dance
    Valentino-type tangos
    While the make-up man's hands
    Shut the eyes of the dead
    Not to embarrass anyone
    Farewell angelina
    The sky is embarassed
    And i must be gone.

    The machine guns are roaring
    The puppets heave rocks
    The fiends nail time bombs
    To the hands of the clocks
    Call me any name you like
    I will never deny it
    Farewell angelina
    I must go where it's quiet.
