Dearg Doom

This song is by Horslips and appears on the album The Tain (1973).

This song has been covered by Slough Feg under the title "Dearg Doom".
My love is colder than black marble by the sea
My heart is older than the cold oak tree
I am the flash of silver in the sun
If you see me coming you had better
Run, run, run
From Dearg Doom
From Dearg Doom
From Dearg Doom
From Dearg Doom

You speak in whispers of the devils I have slain
By the fire of my silver Devil's Blade
And still you dare to flaunt yourself at me
I don't want you, I don't need you
I don't love you, can't you see
I'm Dearg Doom
I'm Dearg Doom
I'm Dearg Doom
I'm Dearg Doom

And when the stars go out
You can hear me shout
"Two heads are better than none
One hundred heads are so much better than one"

And when the stars go out
You can hear me shout
"Two heads are better than none
A hundred heads are so much better than one"

I'm a boy who was born blind to pain
And, like a hawk, I'll swoop and swoop again
I am the flash of hawkeye in the sun
If you see me coming you had better
Run, run, run
From Dearg Doom
From Dearg Doom
From Dearg Doom
From Dearg Doom
