Leon Hunter´s Lullaby Liedtext

Your father’s gone a-hunting,

he’s deep in the forest so wild

and he cannot take his wife with him,

he cannot take his child.

Your father’s gone a-hunting

in the quicksand and the clay,

and a woman cannot follow him

although she knows the way

Your father’s gone a-hunting

through the silver and the glass,

where only greed can enter

but spirit, spirit cannot pass.

Your father’s gone a-hunting

for the beast he’ll never bind,

and he leaves a baby sleeping

and his blessings all behind.

Your father’s gone a-hunting,

and he’s lost his lucky charm.

And he’s lost the guardian heart

that keeps the hunter from the harm.

Your father’s gone a-hunting,

he asked me to say goodbye,

and he warned me not to stop him.

I wouldn’t, I wouldn’t even try
