tiger lillies – little boys blues lyrics

you were sweet and innocent
and only seventeen seventeen
a beautiful summer’s day
and so to church you rode away

birds singing in the sky
philosophers wondering why
while vagabonds such as i
sing our songs and cry

and vagabonds not like me
stare l-stfully at you through the trees
they raped you took your life
with a cudgel and a knife

little boys’ blues
what can we do
we might come from h-ll
but we’re too young to tell
little boys’ blues
what can we do
we might come from h-ll
but we’re too young to tell

found your body cold and still
abused amongst the daffodils
god you allow this deed
do you condone this greed

a father and a mother’s grief
are told but without release
and when they moved the young girl’s head
the soil it bled

a church built where she died
how her mother and father cried
a church built on belief
a church built on grief
little boys’ blues
what can we do
we might come from h-ll
but we’re too young to tell
little boys’ blues
what can we do
we might come from h-ll
but we’re too young to tell

little boys’ blues
little boys’ blues
little boys’ blues
little boys’ blues
