GreatGoo Lyr Req: Coal-Black Smith? / Two Magicians (25) ADD Version: Coal Black Smith 12 Apr 00

God, this must be deja vu. I was sitting here at the MadCat for the first time in a long time and thinking of this very song. (Que the "Twilight Zone" music)

I heard this on a tape by a local group in Kodiak Alaska. I remember the album name was Freest Fancy, might have been the groups name too.

From Memory...

Oh she looked out of the window
As white as any mirror
And he looked into the window
As black as any seer

Hello hello hello hello
You coal black smith
You have done me no harm
But you never shall have me name and that
That I have kept so long
I'd rather die a maid, she said
An be burried all in me grave
Than to have such a musty, lusty, crusty coal black smith
An then an I should die

And she became a star
A star all in the night
And he became a thundercloud
And bundled her out of sight


An she became a trout
A trout all in the brook
And he became a butterfly
And touched her with his crook


And she became a fly
A fly all in the air
And he became a spider
And touched her to his lair


And she became a rose
A rose all in the woods
And he became a bubblebee
And whisked her where she stood


And she became a corpse
A corpse all in the ground
And he became the cold clay
And smothered her all around

Hello hello hello hello
Hello hello hello hello
Hello hello hello hello
You coal black smith!
