ANCIENT RAIN

1. The summer joy is surely gone
When every clock the hour had on
Last night we masqued and merry made
Under the full moon madness played
An older witch she danced with me
And later sat upon my knee
A fiddler flashed his fiddler's grin
To hell and back from lock to chin

2. The witch was clean pushed off my knee
By one born one day after me
And we went home with lock and key
She left me in the morning
I slept on till one o'clock
And we walked out like a concrete block
I drank some whiskey and I drank it hot
On the first day of winter

CHORUS: Ancient rain, pouring down
Wire my bones to the ground
Ancient rain, pouring down
Wire my bones to the ground

3. The summer joy is surely gone
When every clock the hour had on
Last night we massed and merry made
Under the full moon madness played
While these demons taunt in pagan time
Past and present now in rhyme
Two hands that squeeze my life away
On this the holy All Saints Day. CHORUS


(Recorded by Jimmy McCarthy)
