Hunter's Lullaby Lyrics

Your father's gone a-hunting
He's lost in the forest so wild
And he cannot take his wife with him
He cannot take his child

Your father's gone a-hunting
Through 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 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 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
