The Knight of Dublin Castle

Oh I remember, I recall
of a land so green, the grass so tall
where once he pledge his love to me
for a loyal knight was he.

Storms were raging on that night
we awakened from the strangers might
and through those chamber doors he came
please come and help your king!

I watched him leave, I watched him go,
as through the stormy night he trod
riding high a strong, and mighty steed
I whispered 'Please come back to me'
and the Fairies cried for me

It's been 8 months or even more
since I heard the news
I cry no more
I've seen the vision in my sights
of a stranger called the Devil's Knight

I run down to the ocean side
his horse so still, his eyes so bright
the hills were startled by my cries
the knife cuts deep,
I cannot die!
And the sea birds cry for me

And when our loyal knight came home
he found her dead, he found her cold
and from that day, he walked alone
for a loyal knight was he

Haunting rendition of an old traditional folk song. Beautifully executed with an air of mystery.

Great Celtic story song it sounds like it can be really old or something that you wrote recently. I like that. The words are enchanting and the voice makes them flow. I hope to hear more.

A song from a beautiful Morrigan while listening to it's peaceful sound that soothsayer dragon inside my soul was tamed.

I really like the drum beat.
