Ravens

If Raven called your name one night
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
Would twelve more Ravens chant in time?
Hey Nana hey na hey

Death comes early, death comes mean
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
But all Mama’s children return to the Dreamtime
Hey Nana hey na hey

Yo Evohe! Yo Evohe!

If I should die before I wake
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
How many Ravens would my soul make?
Hey Nana hey na hey

One crow sorrow, two crows mirth
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
Three crows a wedding and four crows birth
Hey Nana hey na hey

Yo Evohe! Yo Evohe!

We sing “Earth my body, Water my blood
Air my breath and Fire my spirit”
Earth my body, Water my blood
Mother may you take my body when it’s cold!

Shadow of a raven lands on a wire
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
Sun goes down like stone on fire
Hey Nana hey na hey

Rhythm of the bone, the blood in the heart
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
Sings “Merry meet and merry part
and merry meet again!”

Yo Evohe! Yo Evohe!

We sing “Earth my body, Water my blood
Air my breath and Fire my spirit”
Earth my body, Water my blood
Mother may you take my body….
