The Light On The Bay (de Burgh Chris)

Last night, I saw it there, Shining in the dark again, The light that all men seem to fear; They say that sailors were drowning in the bay, And people kept away, Waiting for the riches that a wreck would bring, When the morning comes, And now the ghost of Blackbeard walks again, To haunt the ones who would not hear the pain; “help me -- help me --“; I took the old path down, down to where the graveyard lay, The place I knew when I was young, They say that Blackbeard had hidden precious stones, Amongst the ancient bones, So I set off to the darkness down below, By the candle glow, T’was then I heard the voices, saw a light, And started on the journey of my life;
