David Crosby – Jerusalem lyrics

Jerusalem

(James Raymond)

[Intro. (Electric Guitar + Harmonica)]

I came back to Jerusalem
Just to see if the light had changed
But it all seems about the same
My friends are here on a holy mission
A mass convergence of Judeo-Christians
It's nice to put the faces with the names
Don't you know me by my ancient eyes
Sweet salvation what a lonely prize
I came back to Jerusalem
I came back to Jerusalem
And it's all coming down right now

[Instrumental (Harmonica)]

I ran into Magdalena
She said she's staying for the Y2 Cana
But I see the sadness in her eyes
We all lost the one we loved
He's up there livin' high above us
Fire and love gonna rain on down, down, down
Don't you know me by my well worn shoes
I walked this road beside the King of Jews
I came back to Jerusalem
I came back to Jerusalem
And it's all coming down right now

[Instrumental (Harmonica)]

But I've been waiting for two thousand years
That's a lot of blood
And a lot of tears

[Instrumental (Electric Guitars)]

Call me certified delusional
But I got stoned against this very wall
I came back to Jerusalem
I came back to Jerusalem
And it's all coming down right now
I came back to Jerusalem
I came back to Jerusalem
And it's all coming down right now

[Ending (Harmonica)]
