Banshee – lyrics
Oh Lord have mercy, mercy on my soul
My little boy, Heavens, oh Lord, my little boy‘s gone
Oh Lord have mercy, mercy on her soul
Her little boy, Heavens, oh Lord, her little boy‘s gone
Chains on my legs and my hands
are holding me down
Chains on my heart and my mind
the ones which make me frown
Walking to cornfields ahead
the sun burns my dome
Walking in silence and pray
to see the road, the road back home
All day I long for the night
the kettle has meat
Moments of freedom and peace
at least a bite to eat
Tonight my mamma is sad
and I don’t know why
She holds my shirt in her hands
with teary eyes, curses and cries
