I was bruised and battered, I couldn’t tell what I felt.
I was unrecognizable to myself.
Saw my reflection in a window and didn’t know my own face.
Oh brother are you gonna leave me wastin’ away
On the streets of Philadelphia.

I walked the avenue, ’til my legs felt like stone,
I heard the voices of friends, vanished and gone,
At night I could hear the blood in my veins,
It was just as black and whispering as the rain,
On the streets of Philadelphia.
Ain’t no angel gonna greet me.
It’s just you and I my friend.
And my clothes don’t fit me no more,
A thousand miles
Just to slip this skin.
Night has fallen, I’m lyin’ awake,
I can feel myself fading away,
So receive me brother with your faithless kiss,
Or will we leave each other alone like this
On the streets of Philadelphia.

We were married in the mirrored hall when I was sixteen
You spoke the words”I love girls in white leather jackets”
That was good enough for love
It was good enough for me

I listened in when you thought you were alone
Calling the Sphinx on a tornado’s phone
Who knows what you meant?
I only heard what i wanted
You said i was your blue, blue baby… and you were right
You said i was your blue, blue baby… and you were right
You wandered the halls all the night time
My body burned, my legs ached
But you never came to bed, you just left me there awake
You kept me wanting, wanting, wanting
Like the wanting in the movies and the hymns
I want the Pharaohs but there’s only men
I want the Pharaohs but there’s only men
You said i was your blue, blue baby… and you were right
You said i was your blue, blue baby… and you were right

Watch “Van Morrison – Brown Eyed Girl (Audio)” on YouTube


Hey, where did we go?
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow
Playin’ a new game
Laughing and a running hey, hey
Skipping and a jumping
In the misty morning fog with
Our hearts a thumpin’ and you
My brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl

Whatever happened
To Tuesday and so slow?
Going down the old mine
With a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing
Hiding behind a rainbow’s wall
Slipping and sliding
All along the waterfall, with you
My brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl
Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
Just like that
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da
So hard to find my way
Now that I’m all on my own
I saw you just the other day
My, how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometimes I’m overcome thinking ’bout
Making love in the green grass
Behind the stadium with you
My brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl
Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da
(Bit by bit, by bit, by bit, by bit, by bit)
(Sha la la la la la la, la te da, la te da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da
(La te da, da da da da da da da da)

    I foresaw you like an old ghost story
    From a family tree that was handed down to me

    I’ve known you like a siren song that warns
    I have been informed you could be the death of me

    But patience bounds an eternal stone
    You were meant to be mine
    I draw a dual with the cards of gods
    That were played in fate and time

    I know we’ll meet again
    Maybe tonight
    Just tell me where and when
    I know it’s never sure
    Maybe tonight (2x)

    Sky whispers in a baritone
    That the mystery always beats what I am shown

    Search the the dial for what i need to know
    They don’t play those songs on my radio

  1. 2 of 4
    Since I haven’t talked to you
    I dream about your baby blues and
    Wonder why you stopped getting high
    Even though we were just friends
    I think of us as bookends
    And I’m gonna love you till I die

    And you think you’re going to heaven
    And that I am going to hell
    And that I’m gonna keep on dancing
    ‘Til I hear that ringing bell

    Heads gonna roll, baby
    Everybody’s gotta pay that toll and maybe
    After all is said and done
    We’ll all be skulls
    Heads gonna roll

    Took a little trip up north
    In a borrowed convertible red Porsche
    With a narcoleptic poet from Duluth
    And we disagreed about everything
    From Elliott Smith to Grenadine
    He fell asleep and I put up the roof

    And he took me to a graveyard
    I thought he’d kill me there
    And he kissed me on the corner
    While the nuns of Harlem stared

    Oh, heads gonna roll, baby
    Everybody’s gotta pay that toll and maybe
    After all is said and done
    We’ll all be skulls
    Heads gonna roll

    Smoking Marlboro cigarettes
    Almost makes me forget about
    Riding on a private jet with you
    I hope the sycophants in Marrakesh
    Make you feel your very best
    Anonymity must make you blue

    And you think I’m going to heaven
    And that you are going to hell
    With your back to the medina
    As if you were in jail

    Oh, heads gonna roll, baby
    Everybody’s gotta pay that toll and maybe
    After all is said and done
    We’ll all be skulls
    Heads gonna roll

    Heads gonna roll, ladies
    We’re gonna drink until they close and maybe
    A little bit of hooking up
    Is good for the soul
    Heads gonna roll
