Robin Hood – song #5

Verse 1:
I’ve been missing church on Sundays
Been drinking away my Friday nights
Lost track of my sister’s birthday
Brought a bow to my last gun fight

Then my neighbors put a fence up
And pull the shades when the sun goes down
Now I can’t collect on my wages
Not getting paid by a buried crown

Chorus:
Lambs become lions, rise and rise again
Keep your arrow true my friend
Lambs become lions, rise and rise again
Keep your arrow true my friend

Verse 2:
I lost a fellow fighter in battle
His last request was to deliver his sword
to his father who asked for a story
And so he listened how I knew the lord

And how forgiveness should be granted to children
when fathers forget to show their love
And that if you can’t collect on your wages
Don’t try to take it from the man above

Chorus:
Lambs become lions, rise and rise again
Keep your arrow true my friend
Lambs become lions, rise and rise again
Keep your arrow true my friend

Bridge:
Tuck told me the church barn is full of grain
‘That’s good’, I said
‘I like a silent, empty church when I pray’

Verse 3:
So I sailed into the town of Loxley
King Richard’s crown wrapped in Red and Gold
And according to the tower of London
The youngest son will don it ’til he’s cold

Then I finally let ’em know I was Longstride
And liberty by law has a ring
But if you can’t collect on your wages
Try getting paid by a dead King

Chorus:
Lambs become lions, rise and rise again
Keep your arrow true my friend
Lambs become lions, rise and rise again
Keep your arrow true my friend
