You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last.
But if there's something you wish to keep, you better grab it fast.
Yonder stands your orphan with his gun,
Crying like a fire in the sun.
Look out, boy, the saints are comin' through
And it's all over now,
It's all over now,
It's all over now, Baby Blue.

The highway is for gamblers, you better use your sense.
Take what you have gathered from coincidence.
The empty-handed painter from your streets
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets.
The sky, too, is folding under you
And it's all over now,
It's all over now,
It's all over now, Baby Blue.

All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home.
All your reindeer armies, they are going home.
Your lover who just walked out the door
Has taken all your blankets from the floor.
The carpet, too, is moving under you
And it's all over now,
It's all over now,
It's all over now, Baby Blue.
