lyrics

come little girl and take my hand
and I will hide you from the villain that broke your heart
in a house in a field in a land up north
in a land up north where the woods are dark
By the prison creek you hear me speak
and see that smoke rise for the first time\
by the prison creek you hear me speak
and dip your finger in the wine

and when the thunder rises without warning
wash your hair out naked in the storm, and
you will shed the skin that you were born in
and leave it on the doorstep in the morning

yes i seen your father, seen your son
your holy spirit when it comes
yes I seen your dogs I've seen them hunt
and I've seen them beg more than once
by the prison creek they search for me
round back where the big trees fall
if by the prison creek you look for me
I'm the dog that comes runnin when you call

and when the water rises without warning
cast aside your earthly belongings
for you will shed the skin that you were born in
and leave it on the doorstep in the morning
