lyrics

Help Me Down

help me down, help me down, St. Peter
I need to make the trip
my time has been misjudged
I'm quite sure of it
a future bright as the sunshine
a bold path out of here
the truth on the horizon
and a black-haired girl so dear

I was down in the Bogside
watch them marching by
bullets and the barricades
you don't cross that line

help me down, help me down, St. Peter
I got a fever cure
blessings few and far between
the things we must endure
found a way, found a way, found a way out
with drugs and kerosene
found myself at the wrong end
of a bad road in between

help me down, help me down, St. Peter
I've got to make amends
broken hearts and apologies
a man can start again
let me go, let me go where the winds blow
let me find my friends
let me take nothing for granted
let me see how this ends
