(Geoff Stephens)

Winchester Cathedral, you're bringing me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town
You could have done something but you just didn't try
You didn't do nothing, you let him walk by

Now, everyone knows just how much I needed that boy
He wouldn't have gone far away if only you started ringing your bell
Yeah

Winchester Cathedral, you are bringing me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

Now, everyone knows just how much I needed that boy
He wouldn't have gone so far away if only you started ringing your bell
Yes

Winchester Cathedral, you're bringing me down
You stood and you watched as my baby left town

    A mother didn't want her only son to move on and the ringing of the bell would have brought back memories of their times in church.
