lyrics

Forty days and forty fearsome nights
For the rights of man did she
Rid me of my tongue,
Cast me out of sight
And play the foolish female

Hiding was I, hiding was I when
The men they blustered in
Gin she had them drink,
Easing only when
They turned to mumbling drunkards

Tell me lady
Why you laid me
Low with no reason
Seasons and seas apart
Lady, to you I owe my freedom

Dirty songs, dirty they would sing
Humiliated her, and
Were they to come close,
In the hall would ring
Her false hysteric laughter

In the morning, in the morning light
Caught sight did I of her
Dirt on her wall,
Painted lips were white
And a stench of stale whisky

Tell me lady
Why you laid me
Low with no reason
Seasons and seas apart
Lady, to you I owe my freedom
