John Cale – I Heard Her Call My Name lyrics

Here it comes the count-down
It's gone gone, baby
Got my eyes wide open
Ever since I was crippled on monday,
Got my eyeballs on my knees, a baby-walking
I rapped for hours with mad mary williams,
She said she never understood a word from me because
I know she cares about me
[I Heard Her Call My Name lyrics on]I heard her call my name
I know she's long dead and gone
Still it ain't the same
When I woke up in the morning, mama
I heard her call my name
I know she's dead and long, long gone
I heard her call my name
And the I felt my mind split open
