Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
OH, WHAT DID YOU SEE, MY DARLING YOUNG ONE?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I SAW A HIGHWAY OF DIAMONDS WITH NOBODY ON IT
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin’
I SAW A ROOM FULL OF MEN WITH THEIR HAMMERS A-BLEEDIN’
I saw a white ladder all covered with water
I SAW TEN THOUSAND TALKERS WHOSE TONGUES WERE ALL BROKEN
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
AND IT’S A HARD, AND IT’S A HARD, IT’S A HARD, IT’S A HARD
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall
