KING'S CALL (Written by Phil Lynott) Phil Lynott - 1980 It was a rainy night the night the king went down Everybody was crying it seemed like sadness had surrounded the town Me I went to the liquor store And I bought a bottle of wine and a bottle of gin I played his records all night Drinking with a close, close friend Now some people say that that ain't right And some people say nothing at all But even in the darkest of night You can always hear the king's call You can always hear the king's call Well they put him away in Memphis Six feet beneath the clay Everybody was crying Everybody said it was a plain grey day Me I went to the liquor store And I bought another bottle of wine and another bottle of gin I played his records all night And I got drunk all over again Now some people say that that ain't right That ain't right And some people say nothing at all I say nothing But even in the darkest of night You could always hear the king's call You could always hear the king's call I wonder if you're lonesome tonight And I'd rather go on hearing your lies Than to go on living without you Now some people say that that ain't right And some people say nothing at all I say nothing But even in the darkest of night You could always hear the king's call You could always hear the king's call You could always hear the king's call Now the stage is bare and I'm standing here They might as well bring the curtain down I cried the night the king died
