Lyrics

Jesus cried, wept and died
I guess he went up to heaven
I've been downtown such a long, long time
I'll never make it home by seven
Won't you come and take me home
I've been too long at the fair
And Lord I just can't stand it anymore

I went down to Jason's
Walked till my feet were sore
But I never knew what laughing was
Till you walked out the door
Won't you come and take me home
I've been too long at the fair
And Lord I just can't stand it anymore

You can give my soul to Abraham
You can give my soul to Saul
And give my bones to Canada
My teeth they don't hurt at all
I don't know who made the highway
But I guess that's just my pride
And I have heard the Prince of Darkness
On his charger ride

The silver blade is gleaming
The scales are in his hand
I swear the night is falling
Don't you lose another man
Won't you come and take me home
I've been too long at the fair
And Lord I just can't stand it anymore
And Lord I just can't stand it anymore
