lyrics

My sons, they have taken you as an offering for the land
And now your bodies are laid out on the hill

My sons, I will stay with you ‘til the harvest is through
On this rock I will make my home

My sons, when will David see all my sorrow is here?
You deserve to be laid down in the earth

And three long years of famine over us
And all that I have has been taken away from me

But I won’t let the birds take your bones
I won’t let the birds take your bones
I won’t let the birds take your bones away from me (x2)

This is all I have that’s left
All that I have left of you
No animal will take my love away (x2)

My sons, when will David see all my sorrow is here?
You deserve to be laid down in the earth
