lyrics

Gallop through the forest
As the full moon swings on high
Those antlers cast a silhouette
Beneath the midnight sky
His hungry hounds begin to howl
The wind carries their cries
A man reborn with rugged horns
Swings a chain as he rides

“The hunts begun, you better run”

A hunter and a gatherer
In mystery he’s steeped
It’s said he saved the king
And bore the brunt of a big beast,
That gored and tore apart his flesh
As Herne began to bleed,
The kings-men knelt to say a prayer
Beneath the old oak tree

“The hunts begun, you better run”

If you roam Windsor forest at night
You might hear Herne the hunter as he rides
The proud protector of the woodland cries
“The hunt’s begun, you better run”

Suddenly a wise-man came
And fell right to his knees
Carefully inspecting
All the horrid injuries
“Take these antlers, wrap them,
Before he rests in peace”
He tied them tight around his head
Assured the blood would cease.

“The hunts begun, you better run”

A month passed by and Herne had healed
The wise-man leapt with glee
But Herne had lost all of his skills
In hunting, forestry
Depressed, confused Herne bore the noose
And jumped right from the tree
Few men said they saw him dead,
Then he vanished magically
