"Sympathetic Scarecrow"

Verse 1:

Who nailed you up there

And strung you limb from limb
Who failed to judge you fair
Were you betrayed by a friend

Verse 2:

Where was your father then (and)

Why didn't he set you free

Did you sacrifice for my sins

And other children like me

Chorus:

Sympathetic scarecrow
Where are you these days
Sympathetic scarecrow
Come chase all our black crows away...

Verse 3:

Why did they take your life away
Has love always been a crime
Are you hangin' there to scare away
The wicked crows off the line

Verse 4:

When are you comin' down again
From your weather-ridden cross
To take up your crown again
Covered by centuries of moss

[repeat chorus]

Verse 5:

Can I see you on a sunny day
Your spirit wavin' in the wind
Watchin' over a field of hay (souls)
Until the harvest time begins

[repeat chorus]
