One lonely Sunday morning

Her long hair flowing

In the midwinter wind
   
She asked me name my foe then.

She asked me name my foe then
 
I said the need within some men
 
I said the need within some men
to fight and kill their brothers without thought of love or god.

To fight and kill their brothers
And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies,

Without thought of love or God
so eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.
 
   
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa

To trample down my enemies

So eager was my passion

To devour this waste of life

But she would not think of battle that
so easy to begin and yet impossible to end.

Reduces men to animals
For she the mother of all men did council me so wisely then

So easy to begin
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.

And yet impossible to end
   
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa

For she the mother of all men
  +
Who counselled me so wisely then
  +
I feared to walk alone again

And asked if she would stay
   
"Oh lady lend your hand," I cried,

Oh lady, lend your hand outright
"Oh let me rest here at your side."

Oh let me rest here at your side
"Have faith and trust in me,"

"Have faith and trust in peace" she said
she said and filled my heart with life.

And filled my heart with life
"There is no strength in numbers.
 
I've no such misconceptions.
 
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away."
 
   
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa

"There is no strength in numbers

Have no such misconception

But when you need me

Be assured, I won't be far away"

Thus having spoke, she turned away
and though I found no words to say

And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear.

I stood and watched until I saw
My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone.

Her black coat disappear
I find new heart each time I think upon that windy day.

And if one day she comes to you drink deeply from her words so wise.

My labour is no easier
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me.

But now I know I'm not alone

I'll find new heart each time

I think upon that windy day

Lady in Black

This song is by Uriah Heep and appears…

This song has been covered by…
Wikipedia sphere
Wikipedia has an article on
Lady in Black
Number-One Hit
This song was a
Number-One Hit!
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
For in darkness I was walking
And destruction lay around me
From a fight I could not win

She asked me name my foe then
I said the need within some men
To fight and kill their brothers
Without thought of love 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

But she would not 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 then
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay

Oh lady, lend your hand outright
Oh let me rest here at your side
"Have faith and trust in peace" she said
And filled my heart with life

"There is no strength in numbers
Have no such misconception
But when you need me
Be assured, I won't be far away"

Thus having spoke, she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw
Her black coat disappear

My labour is no easier
But now I know I'm not alone
I'll find new heart each time
I think upon that windy day

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
