Music relating to the Dr Syn theme

 

 

Paul Roland - Masque


 



Jack O' The Lantern and will O' The Wisp,
The Devil's legion riding out in the mist,
Dr. Syn is riding again.

Ask me no questions and I tell 'e no lies,
We've rum and we've brandy and damn the exercise,
Dr. Syn is riding again.

There's a note pinned to the chapel "Service is at eight"
But all the pews are empty and the organist is late,
He's watching for the redcoats by the cemetary gates
For Dr. Syn is riding again.

There's no trace of the parson and the sexton can't be found,
Yet their footprints ring the pulpit, steps leading underground,
And their lie his Bible, his collar and his gown,
For Dr. Syn is riding again.

Where's the militia, the revenue men ?
A merry chase left them lost on the fen,
For Dr. Syn is riding again.

'X' marks the grave that will never be blessed,
For only spirits are laid here to rest,
Dr. Syn is riding again.
