about

TWA CORBIES
Child gives this as a variant of The Three Ravens, Ballad no. 26. Whereas ravens has courtly and mystical themes, Twa Corbies (Two Crows) is Appreciably darker and laced with Scots Realism.
Track Illustration by Arthur Rackham

lyrics

As I was walking all alone
I saw two corbies, making moan
And one unto the other did say-o
Where shall we gang and dine today-o
Where shall we gang and dine today

In behind yon old fell dyke
I know there lies a new slain knight
And nobody knows that he lies there-o
But his hawk and his hound and his lady fair-o
His hawk and his hound and his lady fair

His hawk is to the hunting gone
His hound will fetch the wild fowl home
His lady lies with another mate-o
So we may make our dinner sweet-o
We may make our dinner sweet

You'll sit on his white breast bone
And I'll poke out his bonny blue eyes
With every lock of his yellow hair-o
We'll thatch our nest where it grows bare-o
We'll thatch our nest where it grows bare

Many a one for him makes moan
But none shall know where he lies slain
O'er his white bones, when they are bare-o
The wind will blow for ever more-o
The wind will blow for ever more.
