    Lyrics

    On the first day of May I took to the road
    I'd been staring out the window most of the morning
    I'd watched the rain claw at the glass
    And a vicious wind blew hard and fast
    I should have taken it as a warning
    As a warning As a warning
    As a warning

    I'd given my nurse the weekend off
    My meals were I'll prepared
    My typewriter had turned mute as a tomb
    And my piano crouched in the corner of my room
    With all it's teeth bared
    All it's teeth bared All it's teeth bared
    All it's teeth bared.

    Hallelujah Hallelujah
    Hallelujah Hallelujah

    I left my house without my coat
    Something my nurse would not have allowed
    And I took the small roads out of town
    And I passed a cow and the cow was brown
    And my pyjamas clung to me like a shroud
    Like a shroud Like a shroud
    Like a shroud

    There rose before me a little house
    With all hope and dreams kept within
    A woman's voice close to my ear
    Said, "Why don't you come in here?"
    "You looked soaked to the skin"
    Soaked to the skin Soaked to the skin
    Soaked to the skin

    Hallelujah Hallelujah
    Hallelujah Hallelujah

    I turned to the woman and the woman was young
    I extended a hearty salutation
    But I knew if my nurse had been here
    She would never in a thousand years
    Permit me to accept that invitation
    Invitation That invitation
    That invitation

    Now, you might think it wise to risk it all
    Throw caution to the reckless wind
    But with her hot cocoa and her medication
    My nurse had been my one salvation
    So I turned back home
    I turned back home I turned back home
    Singing my song

    Hallelujah
    The tears are welling in my eyes again
    Hallelujah
    I need twenty big buckets to catch them in
    Hallelujah
    And twenty pretty girls to carry
    Them down
    Hallelujah
    And twenty deep holes to bury them in
    Hallelujah
    The tears are welling in my eyes again
    Hallelujah
    I need twenty big buckets to catch them in
    Hallelujah
    And twenty pretty girls to carry them down
    Hallelujah
    And twenty deep holes to bury them in
