Song Lyrics

[Bono = Normal, Billie Joe Armstrong = Italic, Both = Bold]

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Superdome
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 yeah, yeah

The saints are coming
The saints are coming
I say no matter how I try
I realize there’s no reply

The saints are coming
The saints are coming
I say no matter how I try
I realize there’s no reply

[Backing Oooh’s]

New birth, rebirth
Trombone Shorty

Living like birds in magnolia trees
A child on a rooftop
A mother on her knees
Her sign reads
Please, I am an American

Drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief, how long now
Until a weather change condemns belief, how long now
When the night watchman lets in the thief, what’s wrong now

The saints are coming
The saints are coming
I say no matter how I try
I realize there’s no reply

The saints are coming
The saints are coming
I say no matter how I try
I realize there’s no reply
I say no matter how I try
I realize there’s no reply
I say no matter how I try
I realize there’s no reply
