I was born in France, called the "Maid of Orleans"
Led by the voices of the Saints
I went to the Court dressed in men's clothes
To save my people from the yoke
I was given troops to destroy the English roots
And to crown the Dauphin at Reims

I'm not a man searching the glory
I'm just the hand chosen to fight
It's a long way to our freedom
I was betrayed. I'm burning at the stake

My own blood sold me in the battlefield
Charles the King made no attemps to save me
I won't be free till the day of my death
The pyre is light. I see the end

I'm not a man searching the glory
I'm just the hand chosen to fight
It's a long way to our freedom
I was betrayed. I'm burning at the stake

I'd rather die than live chained in this cell
I hold to what I have already said
I won't be free till the day of my death
The pyre is light. I see the end

I'm not a man searching the glory
I'm just the hand chosen to fight
It's a long way to our freedom
I was betrayed. I'm burning at the stake

    General CommentThe "Maid of Orleans" was a title for Joan of Arc. So I guess that would make the song about her, hence all the stuff about the voices of the saints and fighting the English and being burned at the stake and whatnot. I really like this song, very compelling.

    General CommentThis is the first song I decided to learn on guitar. Also the first song i ever heard from Dark Moor, this song is pretty much the reason i got into dark moor but seriously this song is just talking about the history of that french chick and how she was betrayed and kicked tushy.
