the boy from kirkby

 

He said I'm only 10 years old

I did never mean to hurt no one

and the lawyers whispered in his ear

be careful what you say you've done

 

and the mother whispered in his ear

If my boy had made it even to three

he'd be twice what you are worth

as her tears sooner swallowed her words

 

But Ill take you back

to that haunted railway track

to waltz with his ghost, down in Walton

So you feel her pain

for her sons tortured name

and the murder won't be forgotten

 

The judges words were weakly written

two 10 year old boys to be left not living

dead in the clasp of custodies hands

till they were deemed to be of man

a punishment pointlessly given

 

But Ill take you back

to that haunted railway track

to waltz with his ghost, down in walton

So you feel her pain

for her sons tortured name

and the murder won't be forgotten
