Peter Cincotti – Goodbye Philadelphia

Just like Philadelphia
Freedom means a lot to me
In between the place I’ve been
And where I’m goin’
I can see America
Tryin’ not to show her age
Even though the winds of change
Keep on blowin’
And I would lay your body down
And rock your tears away
But it’s much too late for now
To be like yesterday
And the time is running out
And we still have to say
Goodbye
Remember Philadelphia
When the world was young and warm
So in love and living for
Everything new
But I know Philadelphia
The winter wind will slowly take
Your heart and soul until it makes
Nothing of you
And I would lay your body down
And rock your tears away
But it’s much too late for now
To be like yesterday
And the time is running out
And we still have to say
Goodbye
Flash a peace sign, take a bow
Though we may not know it now
Things are never gonna be the same
Here on Seventh Avenue
I tip my old top hat to you
I hope you find somebody who
Will love you like I do
Cause I would lay your body down
And rock your tears away
But it’s much too late for now
To be like yesterday
And the time is running out
And we still have to say
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye Philadelphia
