“Beside You”

Videos by American Songwriter


“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.”

Written by Van Morrison, from the album Astral Weeks.
