lyrics

Keep all your money and bring me some wood for the fire
And please don't you tarry
I'm freezing inside though my skin holds the heat of desire
And I'll watch you go
I'll watch you go as you walk through the door
Coins in your hand
I'll watch you go

And I'll watch you walk down the Bowery and pray for your soul
The coins that you carry might lead you astray
To some dark as disreputable hole
And I'll watch you go
I'll watch you go as you drink down a fifth of absinthe and gin
I'll watch you go

And I'll watch you go as they carry you off towards the pier
Down near the ferry
Your pockets are empty
Your head and your feet are both bare
And I'll watch you go
I'll watch you go as you sink in the dark
Senseless and drunk
I'll watch you go

Now the oldest band in town is marching down the street
