Track Name: Well Stone
I threw a stone into a well. I threw a stone into a well.
It was a weight around my neck and the reason I’m a wreck.
Down she goes and I’ll follow her to hell.

Well I was free and living high. I was free and living high.
Well I was free and living high, until the good folks asked me: Why,
They hadn’t seen my sweet Louisa passing by?

Told them she’d gone to see her folks. She’d left the Shire to see her folks.
But I forgot she was an orphan, well that’s what got me caught then.
Now I’ll see her so much sooner than I hoped.

Well I was judged by twelve good men. I was judged by twelve good men.
I was judged by twelve good men; didn’t know me foe from friend,
Only how to make amends for my mayhem.

The priest came calling to my cell. The priest came crawling to my cell.
He asked ‘Son, won’t you repent, of the goodness that you rent’?
But Father why have thou forsaken me? Father why have thou forsaken me?
They’ll stretch my neck the morn o’er yonder lea, and leave my body beneath the Judas tree.

Ask them to hang my gallows high. Ask them to hang my gallows high.
Ask them to hang my gallows high and when they ask the reason why:
So I see that wishing well before I die.

I threw a stone into a well. I threw a stone into a well.
It was a weight around my neck and the reason I’m a wreck.
Down she goes and I’ll follow her.
Down she goes and I’ll follow her.
Down she goes and I’ll follow her.
Track Name: The Gryppe
All the Gargoyles beneath their towers; count the long lonely hours:
Of the sky bending low, to kiss the river as she flows,
Sliding stately on her way, to the islands in the bay,
Embracing loss and the cold, keeps their secrets in her hold.

My Love for you will not waiver. My Love for you; it is strong.
My Love for you is completely, unravelled and undone; before twilight comes.
