From the album Last Supper
Lyrics by: Dave Mountain
Music by: Dave Mountain, Pete Manning
They say that I forced her, I say that she brought me
Tight skin and tough hair; I met the Devil on my knees.
She has her supporters, as God as my witness.
I am but a simple man in all my distress.
I know no violence; know only peace in my garden
She has known this, knows them all in Vanvres.
How can I persuade them? So blind to her ways
I swear, a fairer jenny never been seen in my world.
She always says nothing, just raises her eyebrows
I plead, how I plead, against her unspoken lies.
Four years of her soft hair, four years of her firm touch
Against this I've nothing; nothing that stops fire.
I know no violence
Can not become a saint in my time
