Lyrics

THE MAN WITH THE X SHAPED SCAR ON HIS CHEEK

I knew a man I knew a man I knew a man with an x shaped scar on his cheek And I wondered how he came to be so marked

Maybe he fell maybe he fell maybe he fell in a well down to hell And the devil kicked him back to life it was not his time to die He marked to remember marked him just below his eye

Ooh you should be aware of dark haired girls unless one should cause your death

A ring of gold a ring of gold a ring of gold with a missing ruby stone On the hand of the man who lost his love he lost his peace he lost his wife Lost them to the man with the scar beneath his eye

Ooh you should be aware of dark haired girls unless one should cause your death

No peace in death no peace in life no peace in love and no peace in this fight As darkness closes in on its claim of his wicked evil life All men end the same with a grimace or a smile And so it ended for the man with the scar beneath his eye
