Taoist Tale

This song is by Nic Jones and appears on the live compilation album Unearthed (2001).

Now there once was a farmer who sent his son
Out into the mountain with a horse to graze
He fell asleep and when he woke the horse was gone
He came back without it and all the neighbours said
Oh what bad luck
And the farmer said
How do you know?
How do you know?
How do you know?
How do you know?

The very next day the farmer sent his son
Back into the mountain to seek his runaway
He found the horse and seven other wild ones
And brought them home and all the neighbours said
Oh what good luck
And the farmer said
How do you know?
How do you know?
How do you know?
How do you know?

Well the very next day the farmer sent his son
Out into the fields to tame the wild horses there
The first one he climbed on it threw him down on the ground
And broke his arm and all the neighbours said
Oh what bad luck
And the farmer said
How do you know?
How do you know?
How do you know?
How do you know?

The very next day there was a war declared
And the army man came looking through the countryside
He's looking for soldiers but they couldn't take anyone
With a broken arm and all the neighbours said
Oh what good luck
And the farmer said
How do you know?
How do you know?
How do you know?
How do you know?
