Green Day — The Saints Are Coming lyrics

Green Day and U2.

(Billie Joe)
There is a house in New Orleans, they call the Rising Sun
It's been the ruin of many a poor boy, and God, I know I'm one.

(Bono)
I cried to my daddy on the telephone,
how long now?
Until the clouds unroll and you come down,
the line went.
But the shadows still remain since your descent,
your descent.

(Billie Joe)
I cried to my daddy on the telephone,
how long now?
Until the clouds unroll and you come home,
the line went.
But the shadows still remain since your descent,
your descent.

Ho!
Cha!
Hey!
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/green-day-the-saints-are-coming-lyrics.html ]
The saints are coming, the saints are coming.
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.
The saints are coming, the saints are coming.
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.

Oooohhh ...
Oooohhh ...
Oooohhh ...

A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief,
how long now?
Until our weather change condemns belief,
how long now?
When the night watchman lets in the thief
what's wrong now?

Ho!
Cha!
Hey!

The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply
The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.
