  • Oh well the sun go down
    Celebration in the town tonight
    All day long
    They been slaughtering upon the stone
    Share out the meat
    Yeah, you really like to eat
    Come on woman, come follow me home

    Well, the priest he cries
    Virgin ascending to the skies tonight
    All day long
    I have passed my time alone
    And when the church bell rung
    I stayed out on the tower
    In a dying sun
    Now come on woman, come follow me home

    Well I don't need no priest
    But I love all of the people
    Yes I share the feast
    So I drink up my wine
    Yes and the song in my bones
    I know the way
    I can see by the moonlight
    Clear as the day
    Now come on woman, come follow me home Writer/s: MARK KNOPFLER

  • Barry from New York, NcI like the song's sound effects at the beginning and the end. You hear some ocean waves gently crashing onto the beach. This evokes a pleasant mood of a quiet night in the Bahamas.
