Old Croghan Man

lyrics

Ancient king, husband of Danu
His reign is over; the soils are barren
Bound with hazel, axed in the head
The king dethroned in this life and the next

Cruel winter; we've angered the goddess
The king has failed, forgotten his promise
Rend his bosom, perform the rite
Sever his body in three strikes

Mired in blood and shame
To ease your kinsmen's pain
Cast in sacred earth
Where there is death there is rebirth.
