I've just had another listen to Liza's version and I think the 2nd line of the last verse may be:

  O when will the church bells of his fate'll ring in

Perhaps when Eliza's not so busy with other things as she is now, she'll pop in and correct it.

On the subject of Tim Erikson, I've seen him here in the UK a few times when he's been over, both with Cordelia's Dad and alone, and he's a formidable singer. I prefer the acoustic stuff to the electrified Cordelia's Dad, but that's just me.
