shadows on the road across the silver tracks
a murder of crows along a desolate flat
on their feathers the blood of Crow John
one of their brothers something gone wrong

Ccow John what you done
What you done what you done
Crow John

desperate echoes through the risin’ fog
a murder crows vigilant law
did they catch you stranded nowhere to hide
your cries unanswered til the end of time

Crow John what you done
What you done what you done
Crow John

into the comin’ storm they raggedly fly
a dozen or more against the darkening sky
a murder of jokers with laughing eyes
they killed Crow John for who knows why

Crow John what you done
What you done what you done
Crow John

Crow John what you done
What you done what you done
Crow John
