celticblues5 Lyr Req: Anathea (from Judy Collins) (79* d) RE: Lyrics for Anathea stole a stallion 04 Jul 00


It's in the Judy Collins songbook. The verse about the judge dying (and this is off the top of my head, because I don't have access to the book at the moment) is -

Cursed be the judge so cruel/13 years may he lie bleeding/13 doctors cannot cure him/13 shelves of drugs can't heal him.

(Pronounce "cursed" as a 2-syllable word to fit the rhythm.)

There is another verse after this (in case you don't have it either)-

Anathea, Anathea/don't go out into the forest/there among the green pines standing/you will find your brother hanging.
