Track Name: Legba & Sons (feat. Tara Bratton) - The Walker's Lament
Come now, my darlin', and don't shed no tears
Hold on to your sorrows and hold back your fears
Keep your mouth shut and your eyes clenched so tight
For the walkers are moving in the city tonight
The walkers are moving in the city tonight

Remember poor Tyler, and old Mary Gray
They forgot to be careful, and got taken away
Just pray that we don't ever see them around
For the walkers are rising from out of the ground
The walkers are rising from out of the ground


Nobody knows how it happened this way
Some say it's the end times, that it's God's Judgement Day
And some people say, for whatever it's worth
There's no room in Hell, so the dead walk the earth
There's no room in Hell, so the dead walk the earth

Always be careful and aim for the head
They ain't really people, they're already dead
You're doing a kindness, it ain't being cruel
For the walkers, their bellies can't ever be full
For the walkers, their bellies can't ever be full

Come now, my darlin', and don't shed no tears
Hold on to your sorrows and hold back your fears
Keep your mouth shut and your eyes clenched so tight
For the walkers are moving in the city tonight
The walkers are moving in the city tonight
Track Name: The Walker's Lament (alternative vocal take)
Come now, my darlin', and don't shed no tears
Hold on to your sorrows and hold back your fears
Keep your mouth shut and your eyes clenched so tight
For the walkers are moving in the city tonight
The walkers are moving in the city tonight

Remember poor Tyler, and old Mary Gray
They forgot to be careful, and got taken away
Just pray that we don't ever see them around
For the walkers are rising from out of the ground
The walkers are rising from out of the ground


Nobody knows how it happened this way
Some say it's the end times, that it's God's Judgement Day
And some people say, for whatever it's worth
There's no room in Hell, so the dead walk the earth
There's no room in Hell, so the dead walk the earth

Always be careful and aim for the head
They ain't really people, they're already dead
You're doing a kindness, it ain't being cruel
For the walkers, their bellies can't ever be full
For the walkers, their bellies can't ever be full

Come now, my darlin', and don't shed no tears
Hold on to your sorrows and hold back your fears
Keep your mouth shut and your eyes clenched so tight
For the walkers are moving in the city tonight
The walkers are moving in the city tonight
