J Swallo Lyrics

Found On:


Fire/R.O.K. (1981)


The Complete U2 (2004)


October (1981)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"J Swallo" a.k.a. Johnny Swallo

"'Johnny Swallow' was a studio experiment. Again pressed for a B-side, we took the drums of another song and slowed them right down by playing the tape machine at half speed and started a new song over them. You can't sit down at a piano and write a pice like this. It could only have come out of playing around with sound in the studio." - The Edge, War 2008

Johnny Swallo
Stop watching
I take you by the hand
Stop inside
Paul and me
We walk by
Walking silent
I saw
It was burning
Village
On fire
Was a village on fire
