  1. Black Douglas

Lyrics

VERSE 1
Hush my child and close your eyes
Darkness comes he rides through the night
Quit your stirring, drift off to sleep or hear the tale of Douglas' keep
For he comes with the sun hear him cry
A black dog with death in his eyes
His pyre will light up the night, crack our bones 'til flames burn white

CHORUS
Black Douglas he comes for you
He seeks out your heart
Black Douglas he comes for you
He'll tear us apart

VERSE 2
Castle Dangerous they must now leave
To the border Edward's reprieve
Wells poisoned and cattle slain
The Douglas fights a black campaign
And as they ran, they'd tell the tale of all the horror that they'd find
He broke their spirits and their bodies and their minds
And through the years the tale is told to put the fear in hearts of men
They pray he never rides again

CHORUS
Black Douglas he comes for you
He seeks out your heart
Black Douglas he comes for you
He'll tear us apart

VERSE 3
"I spare your lives, a lesson you are",
"Spread the word near and far",
"Tell any man who dares to be bold",
"The Douglas keeps his larder cold"
He let them run to tell the tale of all the horror that they'd find
He broke their spirits and their bodies and their minds
And through the years the tale is told to put the fear in hearts of men
They pray he never rides again

CHORUS
Black Douglas he comes for you
He seeks out your heart
Black Douglas he comes for you
He'll tear us apart
