"Kitty Jay" as written by and Seth Bernard Lakeman....
Poor Kitty Jay
Such a beauty cast away
This silent prayer
It should paint some peace
On her grave
Something broke her sleep

Poor Kitty Jay
Such a beauty thrown away
So young and fair
Now she's turned to dust
And clay
Terror broke her sleep

Never guessed unto her cold end
Called the Devil her only friend
Never guessed it with his bare hands
Called the Devil the mark of man

    General CommentIt is about a Grave on Dartmoor, Devon, England called Jays Grave.

    Kitty Jay was a stable girl in a town in Dartmoor. She was raped by a stableboy. When the town discovered she was pregnant they all rejected her. They ignored the fact she was raped. She became so depressed, that she comitted suicide. She was found hanging from a beam in the ceiling of a barn. Dead.

    Great song. Dark meaning.
