Balled of the Eagle & Dove: An old Gypsy song which grew up around the legend of the Eagle & Dove
Oh mystical valley, how still you now lie
Your river runs deep, with the tears you have cried.
What beauty and sadness lies buried within
Magical valley - what songs can you sing
Tell me the story of a young Gypsy child
Who played in this valley and ran oh so wild
Tell me the legend, of an eagle in the sky
How did the two meet? How did the two die?
Beautiful valley, with your secrets so deep
Do the Eagles still fly?
Do the Gypsies still weep?
What happened in this valley such a long time ago?
Or is the shame so great, that we never will know?
Some say the eagle and dove still do fly
When the night is so quiet, we may just hear their cry
Like lovers from a romance, doomed by their fate
Tell us your secret - or is it to late?
Enchanted valley why are you so still?
I would just hear your story, I bear you no ill
Rivers can not wash the blood of your past
So tell us your mystery - share it at last.
