Salem '76 - Mary Lou Lord

Written by:Mary Lou Lord

 

This town's pretty cool around Halloween

But other than that it's the same old scene

All that history all that mystery

 

For years I walked that hollowed ground

And soon they passed their judgment down

And they'll never know they killed me years ago

 

And I drown in the sound of yesterday's raid

I burned at the stake of yesterday's raid

And in my own hometown there's no attempt to help me down

From the gallow's pull seven curses on a hangman's soul

 

The spirit of the beating heart the blessed and the magic arts

Rid my soul they took control

 

They pulled my masquerade away

And made mew hat I am today for all to see go on

 

Look at me

 

I'm not the one who danced with you then

And I'm not the one who asked to see you again

 

And in my own hometown there's no attempt to help me down

From the gallow's pull seven curses on a hangman's soul

 

This time I'll have the final word this time I'll win the case

I won't become a Sarah Good again

 

No one's gonna make me change my mind's made up and rearranged

If they had their way they'd lynch me all over again

 

Yeah

 

And in my own hometown there's no attempt to help me down

From the gallow's pull seven curses on a hangman's soul
