No lyrics, but from the MP website...

"Drop Of Blood
      This song has a sweet and soothing melody which creates a powerful contrast to the graphic lyrics. The song sets a scene of witches concocting a spell to exorcise the demons from an ejvil, sinful woman so that the witches can have the powers of the demon for their own. - Rose"

No luck finding it on Kazaa tonight, but if the rest of the lyrics are as cool as the ones you've already posted, Herself is gonna love it when I find it...

it is an awesome song Clinton! A real chilling sparseness to it and has kind of an Appalachian sound to the melody.
I only have a partial recording. The CD is available for mail order from the UK but I am gonna try to find at it HMV this week. I already searched online for lyrics but no luck so far...
I want to learn it and do it a capella.

"A real chilling sparseness to it and has kind of an Appalachian sound to the melody."

So... maybe kinda like all the GOOD music in the "Songcatcher" soundtrack?? (The stuff IN the movie, not the CD, I mean...)

coooo'....

I did think Songcatcher needed some more traditional music in its soundtrack! Not at all sure why the typical Holywood score was used in much of it...

This song's harmonies and the way the melody climbs did sound that way to me...in a Child Ballad kind of way but with a bluesy feel as well, hard to describe (obviously).

Take one tear from a broken woman
One drop of her blood
Take her heart and spirit slowly
All will be well,all will be well, all will be well.

Hey Neese- I tried to find you something. All I came up with is a page of lyrics from the Ballads and Candles album. Rose Kemp does vocals. But the only song with blood is blood and gold but here's the link...click here
Peace. Rustic

Take one tear from a broken woman
one drop of her blood
take her heart and spear it slowly
all will be well

take the hair of a shallow woman
one flake of her skin
start the fire and smolder slowly
stir and stir it well

shine the light on a broken promise
deep within her soul
stoke the fire and scald her slowly
fire burn in hell

break the chain to release a demon
cease her cruel spell
steal it from her arms so slowly
there shall she dwell


(I got these by listening to what I taped off the radio).

Just an "add" for Peg's post of 07 Feb 03 - 12:46 AM this thread, even if it's only a partial lyric.

Sorry, I read "what I taped" to mean you didn't get it all. Guess that is not what you meant. Oops.

no problem; my tape is only missing a bit of the beginning, I think...but I am not sure. Anyway there was an earlier thread on this and someone corroborated that these are the entire lyrics...
