Recorded by John Morand at Sound of Music
September, 2016

lyrics

Old Roger has a spear in my heart at the crossroads
Pocket watch on the fob
Waiting for a turn at my load
Hanging in my metal dress
My skin grasps at weary travelers
Searching for redemptive text
Hanging in my metal dress
Fingers reach out to caress
P.T. has me on display
"From Quebec"
Just hanging in my metal dress
In a word that cursed me for my sex
Jesuits and crowns give bad raps
To a girl bride made drunk on wine
My spirit haunts Father Jose
My iron frock rusts on the vine
