Artist's Notes

This song was based on the stories of the Pendle Witches of Lancashire.


Lyrics

My name is Alice Grey, a name you'll not have heard
May the devil strike me down if I speak a false word
Twelfe good Pendle folk, for witchcraft they were tried
Though I escaped a hanging all the others died

To be hanged for a witch
Like all the others swing and twitch
Noose tightning 'round my throat
While onlookers cheer and gloat
I should have felt death's chill
Up on Gallows' Hill, upon Gallows' Hill

Accused of murder, of casting evil spells
I was at the Malkin Tower, but have no demonic powers

How many people must be unjustly tried?
How many innocents lose their lives?
The King and his laws be damned!
The crooked judges with greasy palms
They should have put them on Gallows' Hill
And let them dangle and know deaths' chill!

To be hanged for a witch
Like the others swing and twitch
Noose tightning 'round my throat
While onlookers cheer and gloat
Should have felt death's chill
Up on Gallows' Hill, upon Gallows' Hill

To be hanged for a witch
Like the others swing and twitch
Noose tightning 'round my throat
While onlookers cheer and gloat
Should have felt death's chill
Up on Gallows' Hill, upon Gallows' Hill

(Now the Grim Reaper's only hours away)

I finally told my story
I can kneel and pray...
