Jerusalem

I was looking at the day moon
When the smoke it faded away
I thought I saw some Jesus
You know I, I thought I heard some Jesus say
"Take your friends and neighbors, and everyone you love
First thing this mornin', boy, you better get out of L.A."
And you know, he said "Right now"

I said "Might not be the Lord too soon?
How could you make the innocent pay?
If you could find just one good man
Would you try to save this wicked town today?"
And a voice said "Tell your sisters and your brothers, and anyone you love
Boy, you better get out of L.A."
And you know, he said "Right now"

Jerusalem, oh Jerusalem
How long would I have gathered you on board together?
Just as a hen gathers her baby, ah yes
Under her wings, wings, wings
And you would not

And then humming a meaningless ruin, you know
Those voices faded away
I thought I saw a black dove flyin'
She was crying down, candling the way
She was singin' "Tell your fathers and your mothers and everyone you love
First thing this mornin', boy, you better get out of L.A."
And the Lord said "Right now"
