lyrics

Saint Mary came to town to see me
She said last night she heard me grieving
And she asked me why, before I cried
She looked deep in my drownin' eyes and said,
"She's fine. She's doin' fine."

Saint Peter called me up this morning
He said that he could hear me mourning
That I've been picking fights that just aren't right
And she still loves me with all her might
And that she's fine... she's doin' fine

But Eleanor...
I never got to say goodbye and I find myself still asking why
Eleanor...
But when I die I know you'll greet me
Standing there, oh so sweetly
Waiting right inside heaven's door

Today I found myself out walkin'
Jesus and I got to talkin'
And I asked him why she had to die
He said, "My love, she's still alive!"
And that she's fine, she's doin' fine

But Eleanor...
I never got to say goodbye and I find myself still asking why
Eleanor...
But when I die I know you'll greet me
Standing there, oh so sweetly
Waiting right inside heaven's door

But when I die I know you'll greet me
Standing there, oh so sweetly
Waiting right inside... heaven's door
