Follaton Wood lyrics

Oh you screamed hallelujah darling
Startled all the sleeping starlings on the wire

As we walked up the footpath through the fields
How the rain did reveal your heart
And the rope swing from the balance held the weight
Shadows fall and a cold wind blows
And you said "oh, maybe we're just lost souls here
Maybe-oh everybody goes."

Oh but we were
Young oh-ho we were young
Ooh we were young
Oh-ho we were young

Still don't, don't you forget
That rope you tied around your neck
Don't free you darlin', oh oh-ho oh ho oh
Ooh don't free you darlin', oh oh ho oh ho oh

And it took them three days to find you
Tired torch lights and dog scents
Oh they let you down from the highest branches
Cold eyes and frozen arms
And my my my your beauty was so dumbfoundin'
Lace white dress and your hair as long as Follaton Woods

And the whole town just stood there crying
Looking at the darkness
For something wholesome and good
Oh good, oh-ho oh oh
Oh good, oh-ho oh oh

Still don't, don't you forget
That rope you tied around your neck
Don't free you darlin', oh oh-ho oh ho oh
Don't free you darlin', oh oh-ho oh ho oh

Morning white mist came in across the plains
Blue skies and rain
Oh and it was the strangest day
People taking cover, people holding shame

And you woulda left your heart ah-ah oh oh
Oh you woulda left your heart, ah-ha oh ho
You woulda left your heart, ah-ha ou-out
You woulda laughed your heart, ah-ha ou-out

You woulda laughed your heart out

The final lines seem to shift gradually from "you woulda left your heart" to "you woulda laughed your heart out"
