lyrics

The wind blew strong & heavy on
That strange & fateful night
Soldiers to the left of me
& soldiers to my right

The stars shone just like diamonds
In the desert sky above
In my mind there was no peace
& in my heart no love

I spied you in the garden with
Your confidants & friends
You knew that I'd be coming
& that it meant the end

It would've been better if
I never were born

I stepped forth from the shadows
Of the moon-lit olive groves
The wind wild and howlin'
Sent a shiver from my head
Down to my toes

& tremblin' like a wolf in hidin'
'Neath his sheepskin clothes
I embraced you, then I kissed you
There in the darkness of old

Your eyes lit with the fire burnin'
From the bottom of your soul
Those eyes condemned me, looked right through me Knowin' then what I'd soon know

It would've been better if
I never were born

I gave the money bag back
Its weight I couldn't hack
Blood money - wanted by nobody
So to the Field O' Blood that bag was cast

To a crooked tree I fastened my belt
The night wind wailed & cried
Friend, it felt
Like I'd already died

The wind blew strong & heavy on
That strange and fateful night
& from that lone tree's crooked limb
Swung my body from left to right

It would've been better if
I never were born
