Sleep

Through the forest and into the valley

There sleeps my dear Sally

Up and over the mountain where the river runs fast,

Carving an ever flowing path

My beautiful Sally sleeps, dreaming a dream

Where the sun shines upon a grass so green

Just pass the desert-deserted

Around the plains the Lions kept well guarded

Slumber away my lady

Do so as the world continues fading

Just pass the Lake, but far from shore

In the most beautiful dress you wore

Away from crashing waves

And the pain and glory of days

The rich soil hides our sin

From when I murdered you in the den

And I buried you far from the eyes of men
