Lyrics

Raven Road oh Raven Road, Raven Road oh Raven Road
You carry such a heavy load
The mists of the past will rise and flow

Raven Road oh Raven Road, Raven Road oh Raven Road
The pain of the past will haunt the home
Down at the bottom of Raven Road

The heat of the summer brings the dust and haze,
The warmest place where the old dog lays
Behind the wall where the seeds all sew
Down at the bottom of Raven Road

Brickwork from the golden age
The pace of life reflects the wage
But folks don’t come and folks don’t go
Down at the bottom of Raven Road

Right at the bottom of Raven Road
The old oak fixed at her abode
Next to the house with the rope swing, oh
What happened down on Raven Road

The house with the rope swing is the one they say
Saw what happened that August day
With the boy and the girl and her father, oh
Screaming was heard from the kitchen, oh

The sound of the old style shotgun roared
Shaking the oak tree to its core
The smell of the smoke from the gunfire soared
Three holes left in the wooden back door

Raven Road oh Raven Road, Raven Road oh Raven Road
You carry such a heavy load
The mists of the past will rise and flow

Raven Road oh Raven Road, Raven Road oh Raven Road
The pain of the past will haunt the home
Down at the bottom of Raven Road

The tragedy there left a sour taste
the house stands still an empty space
It’s never since homed another face
Nobody would want to live in that place

Raven Road oh Raven Road, Raven Road oh Raven Road
You carry such a heavy load
The mists of the past will rise and flow

Raven Road oh Raven Road, Raven Road oh Raven Road
The pain of the past will haunt the home
Down at the bottom of Raven Road

Raven Road oh Raven Road, Raven Road oh Raven Road
You carry such a heavy load
The mists of the past will rise and flow

Raven Road oh Raven Road, Raven Road oh Raven Road
The pain of the past will haunt the home
Down at the bottom of Raven Road
