Johnny put the lantern down Jenny let the fire go out

Now I’m lost and I can’t find My way out of this dark

Won’t somebody shine A  light or a sign

On this heart of mine

 

You pushed my face in the dirt You robbed me even of my shirt

But I got up and I stood my ground When all the chips were down

So don’t hand me that line and tell me it’s fine Stick it where the sub don’t shine

 

You try to put the pieces back

After the mirror has fallen and cracked

Seven long years of bad, bad luck

Now I’m climbing out and I’m stepping up again

 

Farewell Fair-weather Friend x 3

 

The fires of Hell will burn After the worm has turned

Sweet embrace or a Judas kiss How can I resist

To taste the fruit of the vine Drink the holiest wine

And never look behind

 

Farewell Fair-weather Friend   x3

 

You try to put the pieces back

After the mirror has fallen and cracked

Seven long years of bad, bad luck

Now I’m climbing out and I’m stepping up again

 

 

Farewell Fair-weather Friend   Fx3

So here’s to all the broken hearts Fractured by Cupid’s darts

Some have it coming and some do not But everyone gets shot

So just bear it in mind If life is unkind

That the mills do grind

 

Farewell Fair-weather Friend x3
