The Angel Of Lyon Lyrics

HE HAD A (C)VISION OF ANNE MARIE WITH A R(F)OSARY IN
HER H(C)AND
SO ITS E(F)XIT THE RAINM(C)AKER, THE OLD G(F)REY
FLANNEL M(G)AN
WITH A C(C)LOSET FULL OF BUSINESS SUITS, HE LEFTA
L(F)ETTER NEAR THE
(C)PHONE,
IT SAID I'M (F)ON MY WAY TO (Dm)PARADISE, TO SEE THE
(Bb)ANGEL OF (G)LYON"

(same as first)
AND THEN HE CAUGHT THE TRAIN TO BRUSSELS, HE ORDERED
COGNAC AND CROISSANTS,
HE MADE A MENTAL LIST OF THINGS HE OWNED BUT DIDN?T
WANT,
ALL THE BUILDINGS, ALL THE REAL ESTATE, THE ANTIQUE
GLASS AND STONE,
HE?D TRADE A VOW OF POVERTY TO SEE THE ANGEL OF LYON

AND HE S(Am)ANG (Em)AVE MARIA, OR AT (F)LEAST THE PARTS
(G)HE (C)KNEW
AND (Am)WATCHED THE SHADOW (Em)OF THE TRAIN
ON THE (F)TOWNS THAT THEY ROLLED (G)THROUGH
AND HE (Am)CLOSED HIS EYES AND HE (Em)SAW TWO RIVERS
THE (F)RHONE AND (G)THE (C)SAONE
(Am)THE MALE AND FEMALE SPIRIT OF THE (Bb)CITY OF
(G)LYON

THEN HE WAITED ON THE BRIDGE, WHERE THEY MET THE YEAR
BEFORE
BUT THE DAYS TURNED INTO WEEKS AND THEN THE SEASONS
NUMBERED FOUR
AND HIS CLOTHES GREW WORN AND RAGGED AS THROUGH THAT
TOWN HE ROAMED,
SEARCHING EVERY OPEN WINDOW, FOR THE ANGEL OF LYON

AND HE SANG AVA MARIA, OR AT LEAST THE PARTS HE KNEW,
AND WATCHED HIS SHADOW ON THE WALLS OF THE STREETS THAT
HE WALKED THROUGH,
AND HE CROSSED THOSE HOLY RIVERS, THE RHONE AND THE
SAONE
THEY'D NOT GIVE UP THE SECRET OF, THE ANGEL OF LYON

NOW THERES A(C) THOUSAND CANDLES BURNING IN
THE(F)BASILICA(C)TONIGHT,
WHERE SISTER(F) EVE MARIA IS THE KEE(F)PER OF THE(G)
LIGHT
AND DOWN(C)A DREAM OF ALLEYWAYS WALKS A (F)SAINT OF RAG
AND(C) BONE,
THE(F) MADMAN TORN (Dm)ASUNDER, BY THE (Bb)ANGEL OF(G)
LYON

AND HE SANG AVA MARIA, OR AT LEAST THE PARTS HE KNEW,
AND WATCHED HIS SHADOW ON THE WALL OF THE STREETS THAT
HE CRAWLED THROUGH
AND HE CROSSED THOSE HOLY RIVERS, THE RHONE AND THE
SAONE,
BUT THEY'D NOT GIVE UP THE SECRET OF THE ANGEL OF LYON
