Jennan

Lyrics and Music ©1987 by Bill Roper


No good deed goes unpunished. No bad deed is going to go unpunished either.

The rhythm on the guitar here is very interesting and I need to practice it so I can play the song again. *sigh*

	(Chorus)
	D                   C
	Jennan may run, and Jennan may hide,
	    G                         A
	But I'm in his footsteps just one pace behind.
	D                          C
	Jennan seeks peace that he never shall find
	    G          A           D
	For I've got a line to his mind.

D                     C
Jennan, we found you alone and afraid
   G                             A
As your mind touched ours as you cried out for aid.
F                         D
Hot on your heels was the mob from the town  
F                        D
Shouting and swearing of dragging you down.
F                       G
Mounted on horses, they followed your trail.
    F                        G
You tried to escape, but you knew you would fail.

(Chorus)

We danced in our circle and blew on the horn.
We called on the thunder, we called on the storm.
Rain pelted down as it covered your trail,
Scattered pursuers with lightning and hail.
I mounted my horse and I rode through the storm
And carried you back to a place dry and warm.

(Chorus)

We taught you of power and wizardly ways
And gave you the freedom to ride in the day.
Captured you were by a king's man-at-arms
Bearing a locket of proof against charms.
You took his geas at point of the sword  
When he brought the soldiers, you'd open our door.

(Chorus)

I'm sure that you thought there'd be none left alive,
But of us twelve wizards, there's one yet survives.
Never share power with one you'd betray  
It leaves him a line he can follow away.
Here me, you coward, and run for your life,
For I'll take revenge with a thrust of my knife.

	D                   C
	Jennan may run, and Jennan may hide,
	    G                         A
	But I'm in his footsteps just one pace behind.
	D                          C
	Jennan seeks peace that he never shall find
	    G          A           Bm
	For I've got a line to his mind.
