Lyke-Wake Dirge

This song is by Al Stewart and appears on the 2007 CD reissue of Zero She Flies (1970).

(This ae nighte, this ae nighte)
(Any nighte and alle)
(Fire and fleet and candle-lighte)
(And Christe receive thy saule)

When thou from here away does pass
Any nighte and alle
To Whinny-moor thou com'st at last
And Christe receive thy soul

If thou gavest ever hosen or shoon
Any nighte and alle
And sit ye down and put them on
And Christe receive thy soul

Well, if hosen or shoon thou gavest nane
Any nighte and alle
And whinnes will prick thee to thy bare bane
And Christe receive thy soul

When thou from them away doth pass
Any nighte and alle
To Purgatory fire thou com'st at last
And Christe receive thy soul

If thou gav'st ever meat and drink
Any nighte and alle
The fire will never make thee shrink
And Christe receive thy soul

But if meat and drink thou gav'st nane
Any nighte and alle
Then the fire will burn thee to the bare bane
And Christe receive thy soul
