Lady in Black
She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing
In the midwinter wind
I know not how she found me
When in darkness I was walking
Destruction lay around me
From the fight I could not win

Ah ah ah, etc.

She asked me name my foe then
I said the need within some men
To fight and kill their brothers
Without thought of man or God
And I begged her give me horses
To trample down my enemies
So eager was my passion
To devour this waste of life

Ah ah ah, etc.

She wouldn't think of battle that
Reduces men to animals
So easy to begin
And yet impossible to end
For she, the mother of all men
Who counselled me so wisely that
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay

Ah ah ah, etc.

"Oh, lady, lend your hand," I cried
And let me rest here at your side"
"Have faith and trust in me", she said
And filled my heart with life
"There is no strength in numbers
Have no such misconceptions
But when you need me, be assured
I won't be far away"

Ah ah ah, etc.

Thus, having spoke, she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw
Her black cloak disappear
My labor is no easier
But now I know I'm not alone
I find new heart each time I think
Upon that windy day

Ah ah ah, etc.

She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing
In the midwinter wind
And if one day she comes to you
Drink deeply from her words so wise
Take courage from her as your prize
And say, "Hello" for me
