about

A rearrangement of an Irish folk song called "False Knight on the Road."

lyrics

Why come ye out so late
Said the knight on the road
I go to meet my god
Said the child as she stood

How will you go by land
Said the knight on the road
With a strong staff in my hand
Said the child as she stood

And she stood, and she stood
And 'twere well she stood
With a strong staff in my hand
Said the child as she stood

How will you go by sea
Said the knight on the road
With a good boat under me
Said the child as she stood

I think I hear a bell
Said the knight on the road
Aye, it's ringin' you to hell
Said the child as she stood

And she stood, and she stood
And 'twere well she stood
Aye, it's ringin' you to hell
Said the child as she stood

And she stood, and she stood
And 'twere well she stood
Aye, it's ringin' you to hell
Said the child as she stood
