Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack jumped right over the candle stick
See that flame he jumped had a name called hell
Where the Devil's child drank blood from his old man's well

Jack lived simple with his lady Jill
Till he come on home his heart she stole
He caught her messing with another man
So he got his gun and shot them down

The ghost of Jill lying there all alone
He lost his mind beneath the stairs
All alone

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack jumped right over the candle stick

The ghost of Jill his broken crown
All alone
See the crows stalk the ground
All alone

We were young
