lyrics

I take my leave to the eastern sea
because she won’t have me
I saw her lips on another lover
with his boat docked in her harbor
he takes her and spins her round
always to the beat of my heart
as it pounds near the sliver of the door
my hell is now bent on the whore

her ghost crawls in my bed at night
when moon is high and sleep is maddening
her locket shines with glee
looking back from the dresser at me
‘round her neck it should be hanging
instead her treasure chest is a’swinging
so I think of all the ways I can touch my Lydia with my hands

Lydia, Lydia, you’re the most marvelous woman I’ve ever seen
your golden locks will bury you at the bottom of the eastern sea

I hope the hands fall off of her lover
land on rocks and fields
and farmers’ hounds will track down his scent
bring him back and feed him to the pigs
I am not a jealous man, but I am just all the same
one day my darling Lydia shall be beneath me under the eastern sea
