The Revenge Song (live!)

[Explicit]

Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Here's a tasty new dish for you to chew on. It's best served cold I've heard, but in this case it's hot off the recorder from Saturday night! This is a nasty little song that wrote itself pretty fast a few months ago as a thank you song for Ravens's stellar work on our collab song. Anyway I've added it to my live set and you get to hear it here first. That and a good bit of me abusing the small crowd.

Lyrics
Oh preacher come down here and sit beside my bed
Bless me father I have sinned
Oh it was wrong of me, but he deserved it as you'll see
For I have walked where devils tread.

He was a sailor man I met in Tripoli
Dark and strong with a handsome face
A torrid love affair we conducted in the Spring
I'd even bought a veil of lace

Oh if I knew what was coming
If I knew what he had planned
Things would have-been much simpler
I would't have to bear this brand.

One dark and stormy night he burst into my room
Wild eyed and full of gin
"Your time has come!" He said "I'll send you to your doom!"
"Your bones will lie here in Berlin!"

The last thing that I saw before my life was snuffed out short
A rope-jack iron ground into a knife
Six days and nights had passed I was thought surely dead
But suddenly I came to life.

So I'll find him, and i'll bind him
And I swore that he would pay
For the devil, she has raised me,
For revenge is what i pray.

For twenty years I walked, I traveled round the world
And now I've come to Botany Bay
It seems so fitting that the bottom of the world
Is the place that I shall leave his grave

Time has ravished him, but I haven't aged a day
He's a preacher or so I've heard in prayer
It's no good struggling that rope is far too strong
I've plaited it from the devil's hair.

Oh its a been a long time coming
My death was not the devil's work
No you did that of your own will
I've had that from the devil's clerk

Your cries and groans were always music to my ears
but these ones are a different song
No crying now you made your choice there in Berlin
I know you planned it all along

Now after i've finished, there are others still in line
thirteen more that I have met
And when they've flayed you, laid you, bound you with a flaming leash
the devil's given me a pet.

x2
No need for hail mary's
I'm far beyond saving grace
For the devil she's my lover
And at her left hand is my place

Helps out a lot in this sort of thing. This group was already ripped so they were easy to control, mostly. :)

Think so?
I suppose, though i usually think of folk singers as warbling cheery, sappy protest songs, and tunes about vaginas and girl power...
