"The Question Song"
Lyrics by: Ian Corrigan, Tune: "Twa Corbies" (traditional)


(capo ii)

    Dm         Dm2 Dm      C        Dm
1. The moon  is     high upon the hill,
Dm        Dm2 Dm         C          Dm
And we have come to work our will.
                      F                    C
What is your will, o children wise-o?
Dm    Dm2 Dm            C           Dm
To call the queen who rides the skies-o
Dm    Dm2   Dm           C          Dm
Our silver   queen who rides the skies.

2. But is she dark or is she bright?
How shall you know her in the night?
What is her token to her own-o
That she among you might be known-o
That she among you might be known..

3. She is bright as starlight clear
Yet in the dark we know her near
The threefold moon is her own sign-o
That we may know her as divine-o
That we may know her as divine.

4. How shall you call her from the stars?
How shall she hear you from afar?
And if she comes in to this pace-o
How shall you name her threefold grace-o?
What shall you name her ancient grace?

5. We dance the circle nine times nine
We hold on high her holy sign
Draw down the moon upon the green-o
Come to Diana as our queen-o
Hail to Diana our bright queen.

6. The moon is high upon the hill,
And we have come to work our will.
What is your will, o children wise-o?
To call the queen who rides the skies-o
Our silver queen who rides the skies.
