Mountain Goats – Tollund Man lyrics

I was sitting at the edge of the marsh
When the council came to bring me the news.
They handed me a bowl of cooked wild grasses and they
Gave me the ceremonial shoes.

Goodbye young danish women.
Goodbye danish sky.
Goodbye cold air I am going away.
Goodbye goodbye goodbye.
