lyrics

Her family rolled in in ’79
(They’ve seen her walking on the river bed)
Lily-white girl from the Black Country
(Waters part to let her through)
And it don’t take much hindsight to see
(Behind the stream is running red)
Just what was on his mind

Part the earth to let him down
Throw down the stone to keep him under
Even so I shouldn’t wonder
If death is not the end

He caught her ‘neath the willow tree
(They’ve seen her walking in the pale moonlight)
Witnessed by the birds and the rolling tide
(Gates swing back to let her through)
Her last words preying on his mind
(God and the Devil on her side)
Nothing comes for free

Part the earth to let him down
Throw down the stone to keep him under
Even so I shouldn’t wonder
If death is not the end

Found him in the morning light
Secrets lost in hollow eyes
Just her footprints on the floor
And her perfume in the air…

Part the earth to let him down
Throw down the stone to keep him under
Even so I shouldn’t wonder
If death is not the end
