Learn how to die and when, that’s it isn’t it (v/o)

As I was walking all alane
I heard twa corbies makin mane
And one ontae the other did say
Where shall we gang ’n dine the day
Where shall we gang ‘n dine the day’oo

In behind yun oul fail dyke
I wot there lies a new slain knight
And naebody kens that he lies there
But his hawk and his hound and his lady fair x 2

His hawk is tae the hunting gane
His hound to fetch the wildfowl hane
His lady has taken another mate
So we can mack our dinner sweet x 2

You can sit on his white breast bone
And I'll pick out his bonny blue een And with a lock of his yellow hair
We'll theek our nest when it grows bare x 2

Many's a one for him macs mane
Naebody kens where he hath gane
And through his white bones when they grow bare
The wind shall blow forever mare x 2


from Glenaphuca, released March 5, 2021
Produced and performed by Lewis, recorded at Soup Studios with Giles Barrett, London and mastered by Pete Maher. Featuring guest musicians Elisabeth Flett (Fiddle and Backing Vocals) and Charlie Menzies (Voiceover).
