Bruce Cockburn – Down In Yon Forest lyrics

Down in yon forest be a hall Sing May Queen May sing Mary 'Tis is coverleted over with purple and pall Sing all good men for the new born baby
Oh, in that hall is a pallet-bed Sing May Queen May sing Mary 'Tis stained with blood like cardinal-red Sing all good men for the new born baby
And at that pallet is a stone Sing May Queen May sing Mary On which the virgin did atone Sing all good men for the new born baby
Under that hall is a gushing flood Sing May Queen May sing Mary - From Christ's own side, 'tis water and blood Sing all good men for the new born baby
Beside that bed a shrub-tree grows Sing May Queen May sing Mary Since he was born it blooms and blows Sing all good men for the new born baby
Oh, on that bed a young squire sleeps Sing May Queen May sing Mary His wounds are sick and sick, he weeps Sing all good men for the new born baby
Oh, hail yon hall where none can sin Sing May Queen May sing Mary 'Cause it's gold outside and silver within Sing all good men for the new born baby
