Dead Can Dance - The Wind That Shakes The Barley Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I sat within the valley green
  • I sat me with my true love.
  • My sad heart strove the two between
  • The old love and the new love.
  • The old for her the new
  • That made me think on ireland dearly.
  • While the soft wind blew down the glade
  • And shook the golden barley.
  • Twas hard the woeful words to frame
  • To break the ties that bound us.
  • But harder still to bear the shame
  • Of foreign chains around us.
  • And so I said the mountain glen
  • Ill meet at morning early.
  • And Ill join the bold united men
  • While soft winds shook the barley.
  • Twas sad I kissed away her tears
  • My fond arm round her flinging.
  • When a foe, mans shot burst on our ears
  • From out the wild woods ringing.
  • A bullet pierced my true loves side
  • In lifes young spring so early.
  • And on my breast in blood she died
  • While soft winds shook the barley.
  • But blood for blood without remorse
  • Ive taen at oulart hollow.
  • Ive lain my true loves clay like corpse
  • Where I full soon must follow.
  • Around her grave Ive wandered drear
  • Noon, night, and morning early.
  • With breaking heart when eer I hear
  • The wind that shakes the barley.
