She came to me one morning,
+
She came to me one morning
one lonely Sunday morning,
+
One lonely Sunday morning
her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind.
+
Her long hair flowing
I know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking,
+
In the midwinter wind.
and destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win.
 
   
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
+
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.
+
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
  +
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah.
  +
  +
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.
+
  +
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, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
  +
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah.
  +
  +
But she wouldn't think of battle that
  +
Reduces men to animals
  +
So easy to begin
  +
And yet impossible to end.
  +
  +
For she's the mother of all men
  +
Who counselled me so wisely then
  +
I feared to walk alone again
  +
And asked if she would stay.
  +
  +
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
  +
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah.
   
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
+
Oh, lady, lend your hand outright
  +
And let me rest here at your side
  +
"Have faith and trust in peace," she said
  +
And filled my heart with life.
   
But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals,
+
There's no strength in numbers
so easy to begin and yet impossible to end.
+
Have no such misconception
For she the mother of all men did counsel me so wisely then
+
But when you need me
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.
+
Be assured, I won't be far away.
   
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
+
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
  +
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah.
   
"Oh lady lend your hand," I cried,
+
Thus, having spoke, she turned away
"Oh let me rest here at your side."
+
And though I found no words to say
"Have faith and trust in me,"
+
I stood and watched until I saw
she said and filled my heart with life.
+
Her black coat disappear.
"There is no strength in numbers.
 
Have no such misconception.
 
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away."
 
   
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
+
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.
   
Thus having spoke she turned away
+
And if one day she comes to you,
and though I found no words to say
+
Drink deeply from her words so wise
I stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear.
+
Take courage from her as your prize
My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone.
+
And say hello from me.
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.
 
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me.
 
   
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa (repeat until fade)
+
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
  +
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
  +
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
  +
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah

Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah

Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah

Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah

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.

Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah.

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.

Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah.

But she wouldn't think of battle that
Reduces men to animals
So easy to begin
And yet impossible to end.

For she's the mother of all men
Who counselled me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay.

Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah.

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

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

Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah.

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 from me.

Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, a-ah, ah-ah-ah...
