Elijah - Frank Black

Wish I was back there in New England
Playing in dirt behind the bar
Our shouting voices intermingling with ?Little Little Willy? from the car

On the raft down in the harbor
Trying to push each other in
Waving hi to all the fisher boys
Going to deep-sea with their kin

Better go see Elijah
'cause he?s my only friend
Yeah, there?s only us two
It?s just us in the end
Better go see Elijah
Got nothing to say
But I know that?s okay
Go see him now,
Go see him now
What?s that you say?

On the bus down to Redondo
We?ve got enough for single fare
Skating back down to the condos
Breathing in that dirty air
Well you were right to never go back
If I had only done the same

Too many years I kept on trying to win that California game
Wish I was back there in New England
Playing in dirt behind the bar
I hear our voices intermingling with ?Little Little Willy? from the car

On the cliffs above the Blue Coast
Was that the last time we were free?
And where has everybody gone to?
Or was it only you and me?
Better go see Elijah
I got something to say
