Bird who takes flight from the gallows,

Bird who takes flight to the air,

Whisper to me that you're really my true love

Who once was a hanging man there.


Whisper to me in his old voice

From the sky that I barely can see

Say I'm a fool to think he's truly gone

Say he's turned to a bird just for me.


Oh, bird who takes flight to the gallows

You are my only last hope

Say he's alive or I'll soon be his bride

In a beautiful collar of rope

And we'll wear matching collars of rope.
