Nights on the farm
You try to stay warm
hold tight to his arms
and pray for a son

It's good to be king
Not so much to be queen
who can't give him a child
to carry on his name

Two years since the day
He brought you to stay
White dress in your trunk
Silence on the train

He's a man of few words
but he treats you good
keeps you well-fed
and a roof overhead

So you go to the priest
and fall on your knees
begging him please
why won't God help me?

He smiles a sad smile
Says stand up my child,
faith can take you far
but not the last couple miles

He don't always play nice
But even God has a price
he can bring you your son
for a small sacrifice

and on the day that he's born
and the last breath leaves your lungs
you'll go up to meet him
with your journey all done
