CELTIC TRIBUTE Dedicated to Crinan MacBrude and the members of Dahlradia By Lucillus (Sung to the tune of "Day is Done") Have you just come from the battlefield? Are they still fighting? Did the Romans yield? I had a dream where I saw my son die, Won't you tell me please it's a lie? I must say goodbye! And if you see my son out there, So very far from his mother's care, Oh tell him please won't he beware, His death right now I couldn't bear. (CHORUS) Oh, my son, won't you beware! Oh, my son, won't you please take care! Oh, my son, don't die out there! Oh, my son! Alas, dear lady, for I cannot lie, I stood behind your son and watched him die. He was so brave to attack all alone, By himself he charged the legions of Rome. And when they saw his maddened rush, Over the battle there came a hush, And then ten thousand charged as one, So by your son was the battle won. (CHORUS) Rome is gone, thanks to your son! Rome is gone and the battle won! Rome is gone, and peace has come, Rome is gone. I'll curse the Romans 'till my dying day, They took the son that I loved away, And though he died in a manner brave, I wish my son still might've been saved. So now his ghost will roam the land, Near where he made his bloody stand, And he will keep a watch for Rome Should they return to steal our home. (CHORUS) Oh, my son, won't you beware! Oh, my son, won't you please take care! Oh, my son, don't die out there! Oh, my son! Grieve not, dear lady, for he cannot die, While Celts live free beneath this sky, He will not die, for he lives here still Within our hearts, and he always will. And though he lies beneath the earth, A thousand Romans are not his worth, For by his courage we live free, And that's how it will always be. (CHORUS) Rome is gone, thanks to your son! Rome is gone and the battle won! Rome is gone, and peace has come, Rome is gone.
