In a Northern Town
William J. Hall - December, 1987

  1 In a northern town
  2 Time comes wrapped in silver
  3 And the light pours down
  4 Like heaven on the streams
  5 But I tarry no longer
  6 For I'm on my way home
 
  7 In the misty hours
  8 They pave the roads with long years
  9 And the steeple towers
  10 Stand sentry 'cross the sky
  11 But I tarry no longer
  12 For I'm on my way home
 
  13 In the grey dawn
  14 I see my ship coming in
  15 Don't know where I'm going
  16 But I'm on my way again
 
  17 In a northern town
  18 The doors are always open
  19 And I know everyone
  20 I know all their secret dreams
  21 But I tarry no longer
  22 For I'm on my way home
