Llewellyn

Lyrics: Stephen Love
Music: Stephen Love

Played by the New Riders of the Purple sage in the late 1970s.

This is the story of the war 1282
King Edward the First, the death of Llewellyn too
Each man looked different from afar
But in their hearts you know they bore the same scars

Chorus
And it was go down, go down, down where the devil is fighting
Strangest thing I've ever seen
It was go down, go down, down where the devil is fighting
Strangest thing I've ever seen

In September, Edward moved up to the [baird]
His forces stronger every day
Llewellyn then turned soutward bound
His forces lay upon the ground

[chorus]

Soon thereafter a message came
The spirit of Llewellyn heaven claimed
His fight for freedom and his name
The legend of Llewellyn still remains

[chorus]
Strangest thing I've ever seen
Strangest thing I've ever seen
