VerseCOutside the house GMr. Simpson announced That CSally couldn't go to the Gmeeting. He Cwent on cleaning his Gblue Rolls Royce, And Cshe ran inside a-Gweeping. She Cgot to her room and Gtears splashed the picture COf her new mesGsiah. She Cpicked up a book of her Gfather's life and CThrew it on the Gfire. G/C G G
ChorusShe Fknew from the start, deep down in her heart That she and Tommy were Gworlds apart. G/C G G C G G But her Fmother said, "Never Cmind, your part is to DBe what you'll Gbe." G/C The theme of the sermon was "Come unto me and love will find a way." So Sally decided to ignore her dad and sneak out anyway. She spent all afternoon getting ready and decided she'd try to touch him. Maybe he'd see that she was free and talk to her this Sunday. [repeat CHORUS] She arrived at six and the place was swingin' to gospel music by nine. Group after group appeared on the stage and Sally just sat there cryin'. She bit her nails looking pretty as a picture right in the very front row. Then a D.J. wearin' a blazer with a badge ran on and said, "Here we go!"
BridgeThe D7crowd went Gcrazy as D7Tommy hit the Gstage. Little D7Sally got lost as the Gpolice bossed the A7Crowd back in a Drage. Dsus4 D Dsus4 D Soon the atmosphere was cooler and Tommy gave a lesson. Sally just had to let him know she loved him and leapt up on the rostrum. She ran across the stage to the spotlit figure and brushed him on the face. Tommy whirled round as a uniformed man threw her off the stage. [Repeat CHORUS] Her cheek hit a chair and blood trickled down, mingling with her tears. Tommy carried on preaching and his voice filled Sally's ears. She caught his eye. She had to try, but he couldn't see through the lights. Her face was gashed and the ambulance men had to carry her out that night.
Bridge 2The D7crowd went Gcrazy as D7Tommy left the Gstage. Little D7Sally was lost for the Gprice of a touch and a A7Gash across her Dface. Dsus4 D Dsus4 DOoooh. Sixteen stitches put her right and her dad said, "Don't say I didn't warn ya!" Sally got married to a rock musician she met in California. Tommy always talks about the day the disciples all went wild. Sally still carries a scar on her cheek to remind her of his smile. [repeat CHORUS]
