I left the tavern late that night
too many ales, too many fights
I took the path by the river's edge
and I saw her there by the bramble hedge
and she cried... eerily

She was kneeling there by the bitter stream
when I heard a gasp, I heard a scream
I stumbled forth whence came the sound
and the light went out as I hit the ground
and I fell... into a dream

I seen awoke to a wicked laugh
and I prayed I had not breathed my last
I glanced around, the lass was gone
and in her place a peculiar song
and it rang ... eerily

I wandered out of the gloaming wood
and there the red-haired beauty stood
she beckoned me with her steely eyes
and I followed 'fore I realized
that she gleamed ... eerily

Twas at that moment I awoke
the misty morn, the dawn had broke
and staring down was the red-haired girl
the bar wench there at the Black Heart Pearl
and she smiled ... eerily
