lyrics

they were bouncers who found her out training their dogs
in the grey drizzle evening with their black bombers on
the dogs went for something out on the common
and they found a piece of that poor murdered woman

the news crews and cameramen soon all turned up
the poor murdered woman was each place you looked
with official statements and what locals said
some cold and some violence in everyone's head

she can stand in for the pain that I feel
or some other darkness my anger reveals
the prettiest killing, the poor murdered woman
the person is gone but the picture is hung

to look at her somehow she's always downhill
she never got level, now she never will
down through the mist the corpses roll away
but the image the poor murdered woman remains

it was Yankey the squire, as I've heard men say
who rode out a-hunting on one Saturday
they rode out a hunting but nothing they found
but a poor murdered woman laid on the cold ground
