Above the barn loft
In stacks of unwashed hay
Stands the ghost of the woman who taught us how to play
Above the barn loft
In stacks of unwashed hay
There stands the ghost of our mother

Out in the woodland
A voice without a sound
Most have passed but something hangs around
Out in the woodland
Footsteps on the ground
Who waits behind in the forest?

Black water churning
The wheel keeps turning
But the miller's been gone for years
Full moon is rising
With cloud disguising
Appears and disappears

Seasons pass
All the world has changed
And only the ghosts remain
And now we sing the refrain, sing the refrain
