house once I knew my children this house once I knew my wife
This ole house was joy and comfort as we fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang

This ole house once rang
don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And he'd sit there and howl and grieve
But my huntin' days are over
Ain't gonna hunt
Was a free soul
Seen a lot of hatred 
Since the dawn of time 
Seen a dead man walking 
Heard a lot of crying 

I don't wanna crawl 'cross your killing
(Words and Music by Joan Baez)

I'll put flowers at your feet and I will sing to you so sweet
And hope my words will carry home to your heart
You
don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And he'd sit there and howl and grieve
But my huntin' days are over
Ain't gonna hunt
don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And he'd sit there and howl and grieve
But my huntin' days are over
Ain't gonna hunt
flames

I heard men, women and children
Crying out to their God for mercy
But their God didn't listen
So they were burned alive

They went down,
The roof is leaking and the wind is howling
Kids are crying 'cause the sheets are so cold
Woke this morning found my hands were frozen
I've tried
The roof is leaking and the wind is howling
Kids are crying 'cause the sheets are so cold
Woke this morning found my hands were frozen
I've tried
than I am holding your hand

I've seen people cryin' out for justice
I've seen people abandoned by the world
I've seen children whose eyes are so
ask you
Do you believe this to be true?

I was standing by the bedside
The night that my father died
He was crying out in pain
To his God, he
don't know I'm gonna leave
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace
And he'd sit there and howl and grieve
But my huntin' days are over
Ain't gonna hunt
Yes I know you're unhappy
Yes I know you've been crying
Can't you see by my eyes
That I've been crying too
But you'll have to scream louder
battlefield
In my dreams, well
Here I will enjoy it
Where innocence plays with all
The laughing children
The kind who are crying right now

A taste of freedom
flames

I heard men, women and children
Crying out to their God for mercy
But their God didn't listen
So they were burned alive

They went down,
burning acid rain, yeah, you see I feel the pain too

I saw the world was green once, I saw the people riot on
I've seen the good ones die and I know my
to work again

He was sleeping in the workroom
With a mattress on the floor
When one night I heard him crying
As I passed outside his door

He cried, "Rita,
I thought I heard someone calling me 
I've seen the pictures on TV
And I made up my mind that I would go and see
With my own eyes

It didn't
believe this to be true? 

I was standing by the bedside 
The night that my father died 
He was crying out in pain 
To his God he said, "Have mercy, mercy!"
And stay by my side until morning is nigh

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay
Close by me for ever, and love me, I pray
Bless all the dear
black
Breath, I am black death
I am the reason, that children lie
Crying, watching their parents
Dying
And I am formless, always
Relentless, something you
y'all claim to be Gods or Goddess
To me, y'all all garbage; I see all of y'all as movin targets
And my lyrics be the atomic rockets, cosmic vomic -
men
And kidnap children, for vengeance in the name of the Horsemen
Slice your Achilles tendon, the Headless Horseman
And we abide by, the code
