Leonard CohenHunter's Lullaby

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 we'll never cannot 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
