STEELEYE SPAN


They Called Her Babylon Lyrics

To the halls of Latham House the king he did proclaim
That the seventh Earl of Derby, James Stanley was his
name,
Should resist the Scottish force bound for the Isle of
Man,
So he gathered up his fighters and obeyed the king's
command.

The Countess was of noble blood, though not of royalty,
Yet brave and as intrepid as any man was she.
So the house became a fortress, with her good Lord now
gone.
Her name was Lady Charlotte but they called her
Babylon.

Chorus: So put yourselves in line against Babylon.
All ye that bend the bow against the crown.
And train the gunner's sights against Babylon
Till the eagle tower does fall and the walls they are
thrown down.

Both the puritans and Fairfax, together they did call
For this one last royal stronghold in Lancashire to
fall.
So the garrison she strenghtened and the eagle tower
was manned
And refusing all conditions, it was then the siege
began.

So put yourselves in line against Babylon.
All ye that bend the bow against the crown.
And train the gunner's sights against Babylon
Till the eagle tower does fall and the walls they are
thrown down.

Twas in two good months when those rebels did retreat
They were cast out from the earthworks and driven to
defeat.
With dishonour and in shame their siege came to an end,
They were routed by a lady and two hundred loyal men.

So put yourselves in line against Babylon.
All ye that bend the bow against the crown.
And train the gunner's sights against Babylon
Till the eagle tower does fall and the walls they are
thrown down
