THE BALLAD OF CASEY DIESS traditional

TWAS A MAN OF YOUTHFUL FEATURES TWAS A BOY OF SORROWFUL EYES WATCHING OUT BUT LOOKING INWARDS TALL AND STATELY AND FULL OF LIFE

IN HIS LIFE HE SPOKE SO RARELY IN HIS MIND HE CRIED FOR LIGHT PAINTING PERCEPTIONS TRYING TO CAPTURE THAT WHICH HE SAW IN HIS QUESTIONING STRIFE

BRING HIM NO WINE FROM FAR AWAY VINEYARDS TELL HIM NO TALES OF THE CANYON'S MIGHT BUT WISH HIM PEACE AND ETERNAL WISDOM FOR HE HAS DIED AND HE DIED BY LIGHT

ONCE IN LISBON, TWICE IN LONDON TRAVELLING AROUND FOR ALL OF HIS TIME LOOKING FOR AND FINDING A GODDESS HE TOOK DIANA TO BE HIS WIFE

OF THE CHILDREN THEY'D BEGOTTEN TWO HAD DIED WITHOUT KNOWING LIFE AND THE THIRD I KNOW NOT WHEREOF BUT IF SHE LIVES SHE WILL YET BE KIND

BRING HIM NO WINE FROM FAR AWAY VINEYARDS TELL HIM NO TALES OF THE CANYON'S MIGHT BUT WISH HIM PEACE AND ETERNAL WISDOM FOR HE HAS DIED AND HE DIED BY LIGHT

CASEY HAD A MARK OF SIMPLE VALUE HE HAD A STAR BETWEEN HIS EYES IN HIS HANDS HE HELD AN AXE BLADE THE GREEK SYMBOL OF THUNDER AND FIRE

ON A NIGHT WHEN THE HEAVENS WERE CRYING HE WENT OUT AND TOOK HIS BLADE CHOPPING WOOD TO WARM HIS HEARTHSIDE THE LIGHTENING CAME AND MY BROTHER DIED

BRING HIM NO WINE FROM FAR AWAY VINEYARDS TELL HIM NO TALES OF THE CANYON'S MIGHT BUT WISH HIM PEACE AND ETERNAL WISDOM FOR HE HAS DIED AND HE DIED BY LIGHT
