  • Little Jimmy's gone
    Way out of the backstreet
    Out of the window
    Through the fallin' rain
    Right on time
    Right on time
    That's why Broken Arrow
    Waved his finger down the road so dark and narrow
    In the evenin'
    Just before the Sunday six-bells chime, six-bells chime
    And all the dogs are barkin'
    Way on down the diamond-studded highway where you wander
    And you roam from your retreat and view
    Way over on the railroad
    Tomorrow all the tippin' trucks will unload
    Every scrapbook stuck will glue
    And I'll stand beside you
    Beside you child
    To never never never wonder why at all
    No no no no no no no no
    To never never wonder why at all
    To never never never wonder why it's gotta be
    It has to be
    Way across the country where the hillside mountain glide
    The dynamo of your smile caressed the barefoot virgin child to wander
    Past your window with a lantern lit
    You held it in the doorway and you cast against the pointed island breeze
    Said your time was open, go well on your merry way
    Past the brazen footsteps of the silence easy
    You breathe in you breathe out you breathe in you breathe out you breath in
    You breathe out you breathe in you breathe out
    And you're high on your high-flyin' cloud
    Wrapped up in your magic shroud as ecstasy surrounds you
    This time it's found you
    You turn around you turn around you turn around you turn around
    And I'm beside you
    Beside you
    Oh darlin'
    To never never wonder why at all
    No no no no no
    To never never never wonder why at all
    To never never never wonder why it's gotta be
    It has to be
    And I'm beside you
    Beside you
    Oh child
    To never never wonder why at all
    I'm beside you
    Beside you
    Beside you
    Beside you
    Oh child Writer/s: Van Morrison
