    Hey Folks

    Stories of the night eh? What an interesting theme for this Halloween season.

    I dont know any Halloween songs unfortunetly but I do have one or 2 that are a bit darker in nature.

    In my video this week I wanted to try singing 2 songs which I have wanted to sign for a while.

    The first one is called Birmingham Mill. It tells the story of a young girl heading of to work in a mill which catches fire causing many of the young female workers to die in the blaze.
    Its a song that starts out with a catchy upbeat melody and intriguing story but mid way through takes a darker turn.

    The second song is from Game Of Thrones Season 8 .Its called Jenny Of Old Stones and has the theme of a lost girl dancing with ghosts.

    "The Birmingham Mill"

    One fair girl with fine yellow hair
    Wild flower of the west country
    Left one night for a stormy ride
    On a winding road to the east

    One fair girl at the Birmingham Mill
    For a dollar and a half times three
    See the spinning wheels turn, she is young but she'll learn
    With her slender white hands to weave

    Twelve smoke stacks in a row row row
    And a girl of five times three
    See the mill boss patrol, hear the factory bells toll
    And the girls look as sad as can be
    And she cried for her home country

    One little spark set a light to a flame
    And the fire climbed through to the east
    And the roof it crashed and the girls all dashed
    And they all cried "oh god please"
    And she crawled on her hands and her knees

    At the Birmingham Mill where the wild flowers grow
    Round the grave of those girls so fair
    See the lilly bells bloom round thier cold marble tombs
    And they come in the spring of the year

    One fair girl with fine yellow hair
    Wild flower of the west country
    May she rest well amoungst the wold lilly bells
    In her cold marble tomb in the east.

    At the Birmingham Mill where the wild flowers grow
    Round the grave of those girls so fair
    See the lilly bells bloom round thier cold marble tombs
    And they come in the spring of the year

    "Jenny of Old Stones"

    High in the halls of the kings who are gone
    Jenny would dance with her ghosts
    The ones she had lost and the ones she had found
    And the ones who had loved her the most

    The ones who'd been gone for so very long
    She couldn't remember their names
    They spun her around on the damp old stone
    Spun away all her sorrow and pain

    And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave
    Never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave

    High in the halls of the kings who are gone
    Jenny would dance with her ghosts
    The ones she had lost and the ones she had found
    And the ones who had loved her the most
