Air Shanty Attempt #2, the Widow's Song
« on: September 27, 2016, 02:32:00 pm »
Had another one. Hopefully it's catchy enough.


They came to me just yesterday
“Would you be the missus, pray?”
They told me like they tell them all;
He listened to the Wind’s soft Call


I met my Mother just last week
She asked me, “Girl why won’t you weep?”
I told her like I tell them all;
He listened to the Wind’s soft Call


I met the broker just last month
He told me “Lass, she isn’t much.”
I told him like I tell them all;
They’ll listen to the Wind’s soft Call


In Dragontown only last year
They asked me, “Where’s your Husband dear?”
I told them like I tell them all;
He listened to the Wind’s soft Call


For five years now, on the roam
I know I’ll never make it home.
They tell them like they tell them all;
She listened to the Wind’s soft Call


I went back ten years ago
She asked me, “Where’d my mother go?”
I told her like I tell them all;
She listened to the Wind’s soft Call
