Brother Eddie Lyrics

[Brother Eddie — R. King, J. Farni, H. Vickers]

A gospel mission on Walter Street
Where beat-up souls do congregate
To suffer through the sermons of hellfire
Join their voices in a choir

Brother Eddie in the back row
Shuffles on up to the piano

Anybody can come in
Out of the cold and howling storm
Rub their shoulders with their brother
Get the word — or just get warm
Get the word — or just get warm
Get the word — or just get warm

A junkie priest comes stumbling in
Supporting his habit — black as sin
Russian sailors in they come
Nine winos and a common man

Oh Brother Eddie won't you hit
Those pearly things — just a little bit

Anybody can come in
Out of the cold and howling storm
Find a seat close to the piano
Get the word — or just get warm
Get the word — or just get warm
Get the word — or just get warm

Brother Eddie won't you play

[Instrumental]
Some say he was a priest who got defrocked because he loved godless things, but
Some say he was a boogie-woogie ace who just got weary of the race

But all agree
He's got the gift
Of leading you
From while you drift

Anybody can come in
Out of the cold and howling storm
Rub their shoulders with their brother
Get the word — or just get warm
Get the word — or just get warm
Get the word — or just get warm
Get the word — or just get warm
You can get the word — or just get warm
[Repeat & fade]
