Report a bug

Lady in Black is a song by the 1970s rock band Uriah Heep, are an English rock band formed in London in 1969 and are regarded as one of the seminal hard rock acts of the early 1970s. It is the fourth track of their 1971 album Salisbury.

 

The song, Lady in Black, is credited to Ken Hensley. It tells the story of a man wandering through war-torn darkness and encountering agoddess-like entity who consoles him. It is often praised, by fans and critics alike, as Hensley's most poetic work to date.There were too many b-sides for this song as a single the most famous was "Simon the Bullet Freak" but "Bird of Prey" has also been the b-side for the song. In 1981 the band has released a single in Germany and in Netherlands and the b-side was "Easy Livin'". The song has been written in the key of A Minor.

 

A brief comment on the cover of the original vinyl release commented that for Ken Hensley inspiration was a real case: a surprise visit to his daughter's rural vicar at a moment when he was in very depressed state. The result off this meeting, and-some kind of insight-and was the song Lady in Black: philosophical parable tells us that evil can not be overcome by evil itself.

 

Meanwhile, this song is quite suitable to play since Lady in Black Stave is very simple. Just act now!

 

The Lyrics of Lady in Black:

 

She came to me one morning,
one lonely Sunday morning,
her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind.
I know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking,
and destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win.
Ah ah ah ...
Ah ah ah ...
She asked me name my foe then.
I said the need within some men
to fight and kill their brothers without thought of love or god.
And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies,
so eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.
Ah ah ah ...
Ah ah ah ...
But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals,
so easy to begin and yet impossible to end.
For she the mother of all men who counseled me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.
Ah ah ah ...
Ah ah ah ...
"Oh lady lend your hand," I cried,
"Oh let me rest here at your side."
"Have faith and trust in me,"
she said and filled my heart with life.
There is no strength in numbers.
I've no such misconception.
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away.
Ah ah ah ...
Ah ah ah ...
Thus having spoke she turned away
and though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear.
My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone.
I find new heart each time I think upon that windy day.
And if one day she comes to you drink deeply from her words so wise.
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me.
Ah ah ah ...
Ah ah ah ...
