lyrics

As all alone one night I walked
I heard two ravens, how they talked

One raven to the other did say 

"Where shall we go and dine today?"

"I know the place a soldier fell
A man of honor, mark it well

And no one knows that he lies there,

But his hawk, his hound and his lady fair."

"His hound has gone to hunt alone,

His hawk to fetch the wild-fowl home,

His lady's found another mate,

So we may have our dinner date."

"You'll dine upon his meaty thighs,

And I'll peck out his hazel eyes;

With one lock of his golden hair 

We'll thatch our nest when it grows bare."

"Many a one for him will cry,

But no one knows where he does lie;

Over his bones, once they're picked clean
The lonesome wind shall wail and keen."
