Sweet Salvation

Maybe you haven’t heard but Sally left for good last night
She rode out on the same gold plated train she rode in on
And with eyes like doves behind a veil of sorrow
She left what she called the concrete elite

Now every day and twice on Sundays
His heart keeps a vigil for the photo on the bedside table
And the sadness wells up inside Tommy’s soul
And pours out on his pillow just before dawn

Sweet Salvation

Now Sally’s given name is Salvation
But God knows she ain’t never saved no one
Hey Tommy let her go, go, go with good riddance
Watch her train pull out just before dawn

Sweet Salvation

Maybe you haven’t heard but Sally left for good last night
