Kitty Jay
(Seth Lakeman)

Poor Kitty Jay such a beauty cast away,
This silent prayer it should paint some peace
on her grave,
Something broke her sleep.

Poor Kitty Jay such a beauty thrown away,
So young and fair now she`s turned to dust,
and clay,
Terror broke her sleep.

Never guessed unto her cold end,
Call the Devil her only friend,
Never guessed it with his bare hands,
Call the Devil the mark of man.

it's near here that Kitty Jay's grave
is to be found,and yes, it's that hound.....

Seth debuted this album in a very odd place
go through the link and find out where.

a brief overview of this tragic
tale. the Wikipedia entry

Dartmoor is riddled with
stories of folklore, superstition
and legends and one of the
most renown is the story of
Kitty Jay and Jay's Grave.
At the turn of the 18th and
19th Centuries she was
a pauper girl from the
workhouse at Newton Abbot.
It is sometimes difficult these
days to appreciate what it must
have been like to be poor and live,
or try to live at that time. All sorts
of folk ended up in the workhouse;
orphans, paupers and other
completely destitute people and
these "unfortunates" were a drain
on the Parish Purse. One such
person was Kitty Jay..........
