Take me down, down to the water,
where the white of your eyes turns red
from the fear of the ghosts and spirits in the river below,
from the great, great war that has given you a home.

Oh, father! Don't go! Send another to the bottom, oh.
Oh, brother! Don't go! Don't you bury in the ground all the ones I love.

Take me down, down to the forest,
where all else will be drowned in the sound of the chorus
of the saints and angels singing up from above: "Ah, ah ah-ah!"

Oh, mother! Don't go send another to the place I know.
Oh, sister! Please don't! Don't you bury in the ground all the ones I love.
