"Les Morts Dansant" 1985
From The LP "On A Storytellers Night" 1985


Cannons roared, in the valley they thundered
 While the guns lit up the night
 Then it rained and both sides wondered
 Who is wrong and who is right?

 On the wire like a ragged old scarecrow
 Bloody hands and broken back
 When they fire, see him pirouette solo
 Jump in time to the rat-a-tat

 What a night though it's one of seven
 What a night for the dancing dead
 What a night to be called to heaven
 What a picture to fill your head
 To fill your head

 By the wall in silhouette standing
 Through a flash of sudden light
 Cigarette from his mouth just hanging
 Paper square to his heart pinned tight

 Gather 'round, reluctant marksmen
 One of them to take his life
 With a smile he gives them pardon
 Leaves the dark and takes the light

 What a night though it's one of seven
 What a night for the dancing dead
 What a night to be called to heaven
 What a picture to fill your head
 To fill your head

 They dispatch their precious cargo
 And knock him back right off his feet
 And they pray may no one follow
 Better still to face the beast

 When the field has become a garden
 And the wall has stood the test
 Children play and the dogs run barking
 Who would think or who would guess?

 What a night though it's one of seven
 Le mort dansant
 What a night for the dancing dead
 What a night to be called to heaven
 What a picture to fill your head
 To fill your head

 What a night though it's one of seven
 Le mort dansant
 What a night for the dancing dead
 What a night to be called to heaven
 What a picture to fill your head
 
Oh - What a night
 What a night though it's one of seven
 Le mort dansant
 What a night for the dancing dead
 What a night to be called to heaven, heaven
 What a picture to fill your head 

Whoah, Whoah.
Whoah, Whoah.
