  1. Give My Love To London
(Marianne Faithfull/Steve Earle) Give my love to London, Say I’ll be there soon Meet me in Piccadilly, And we’ll dance by the light of the moon Dance by the light of the moon boys Dance by the light of the moon I’ll visit all the places I used to know so well From Maida Vale to Chelsea Paradise to Hell Paradise to Hell boys Paradise to Hell Skeletons are turning Twisting in the wind That whips the tattered flags Along the streets of Kensington Hell on earth is burning In the streets of Kensington The river’s running bloody The Tower’s tumbling down I’m singing “Pirate Jenny” While the Black Ship’s bearing down Jenny’s hating, breaking heart Sure makes a lonesome sound Tonight I’ll watch the city Burning fiery bright Their kindness out of pity Will not get them through the night Chiswick’s rather pretty In the sacrificial light And if I was to die then I wouldn’t really care Cause I’d wake up in the morning And I wasn’t really there Yeah I’d open up my eyes and find I really wasn’t there So give my love to London Tell ‘em I’ll be there soon Meet in Piccadilly And we’ll dance by the light of the moon Dance by the light of the moon boys Dance by the light of the moon Dance by the light of the moon boys Dance by the light of the moon Steve Earle — guitar Adrian Utley — guitar Rob Ellis — percussion, harmonium Dimitri Tikovoi — bass, percussion Warren Ellis — violin, viola Mick Jones — guitar, bells
