Thread Name: Rolling of the stone - origin?
Subject: Rolling of the stone - origin?
The Young Tradition recorded a song (Fragment?) called The rolling of the stone (on Galleries, I think). I was looking for some information on the origins, but I can't find the song in a search here.
I remember the following, and can post the rest tomorrow (Can't remember the first verse, about the rolling of the stone)

Will you drink of the blood
The white wine and the red
Or will you go and see pretty Susie
When that I am dead

Susie charms the birds from the skies
The fish from out of the sea,
And there she lay in her true loves arms
And there was content to be
