I Have Not Been To Oxford Town

This song is by David Bowie and appears on the album 1. Outside (1995).

Original video
Baby Grace is the victim
She was 14 years of age
And the wheels are turning, turning
For the finger points at me

(All's well)
But I have not been to Oxford Town
(All's well)
No, I have not been to Oxford Town

Toll the bell
Pay the private eye
All's well
Twentieth century dies

And the prison priests are decent
My attorney seems sincere
I fear my days are numbered
Lord, get me out of here

(All's well)
But I have not been to Oxford Town
(All's well)
But I have not been to Oxford Town

Toll the bell
Pay the private eye
All's well
Twentieth century dies

This is your shadow on my wall
This is my flesh and blood
This is what I could've been

And the wheels are turning and turning
As the twentieth century dies

If I had not ripped the fabric
If time had not stood still
If I had not met Ramona
If I'd only paid my bill

(All's well)
I have not been to Oxford Town
(All's well)
But I have not been to Oxford Town

Toll the bell
Pay the private eye
All's well
Twentieth century dies

This is my bunk with two sheets
This is my food though foul
This is what I could have been

Toll the bell
Pay the private eye
All's well
Twentieth century dies

Toll the bell
Pay the private eye
All's well
Twentieth century dies
All's well
Twentieth century dies
All's well
All's well
All's well

Toll the bell
Pay the private eye
All's well
Twentieth century dies
Toll the bell
Pay the private eye
All's well
Twentieth century dies
