1. You can say your prayers, work your rites

burn your little candles day and night

you can shimmy 'til dawn to the pounding drums
         Em                     D          Em

but you best be ready when the Horned One comes yeah
 D      Em                     D       Em 

If you wake to the sound of a hunting horn,
 Em                  D          Em

dance a ring in the gathering storm.

If the Solstice time gets your panties in a wad,

it's just the coming of the    Horned God

Ch:  He will call you out, make you sweat,

give you a blessing that you'll never forget.
