The Saints Are Coming Lyrics

[The Skids Cover]

There is a house in New Orleans, they call the Silver
Dawn
It's been the ruin of many a poor boy, and God, I know
I'm one.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

When sang in the Dome in the first event after Katrina - the Saints-Falcons game - it's SUPERDOME. Green Day also sang it in 2009 in NO and said they'd only sing it in NO.

'Superdome'. It's a bit that Green Day did playing on the Animals song. They re-did the Skids song specifically to re-open the Superdome just over a year after Hurricane Katrina. We loved it, ya'll!

It's Rising sun. The SuperDome thing is a Greenday, Greenday & U2 version they made for the reopening of the SuperDome

In the live version, it's 'Superdome', because U2 and Green Day played the song in the Superdome, prior to the first Saints game after Hurrican Katrina, during the stadium's re-opening festivities.

The house is The Rising Sun. This was the first line of the nineteen sixty four song by the Animals. The House of the Rising Sun.
