Hunter's Lullaby (vom Album: Various Positions)

Your father's gone a-hunting

He's deep in the forest so wild

And he cannot take his wife with him

He cannot take his child

Your father's gone a-hunting

In the quicksand and the clay

And a woman cannot follow him

Although she knows the way

Your father's gone a-hunting

Through the silver and the glass

Where only greed can enter

But spirit, spirit cannot pass

Your father's gone a-hunting

For the beast we'll never bind

And he leaves a baby sleeping

And his blessings all behind

Your father's gone a-hunting

And he's lost his lucky charm

And he's lost the guardian heart

That keeps the hunter from the harm

Your father's gone a-hunting

He asked me to say goodbye

And he warned me not to stop him

I wouldn't, I wouldn't even try
