"River Song" as written by Sally Anne Oldfield and Michael Gordon Oldfield....
My moon shines so softly
On the hair of my killer
Pour flowers on his head
Help me give him some shelter

Come lie by the river
Rest your head don't you fear
Then sleep softly my baby
They won't find you here
And Daddy forgive them
They've taken and murdered all that he loved
He came with a gun his mind all undone
Now he's weepin' they wanna hang him at morning.

Pretty stars drop your wonder
On the eyes of my killer
Blind him with lovelight
Help me give him some shelter

Come lie by the river
Rest your head don't you fear
Then sleep softly my baby
They won't find you here
And Daddy forgive them
They've taken and murdered all that he loved
He came with a gun his mind all undone
Now he's weepin' they wanna hang him at morning.

I will die on a mountain
When the evening is falling
Kill softly my baby
For I'll rise in the morning

Come take me by the river
Bring your gun don't you fear
Then sleep quiet my baby
They won't find my body here
And Daddy forgive them
They've taken and murdered all that he loved
He came with a gun his mind all undone
Now he's weepin' they wanna hang him at morning
