Blood Money

This is part of a song I wrote based on last night’s game. Still working on it, but I wanted to post it in the works. Some of it is great, some silly. It needs a last verse. Any notes are welcome.

A silent ship sinking in the dead of night.
The guards of the city watch it all from torchlight.
She slipped beneath the surface without a whisper at all.
Now one after the other each of us will fall.
Blood money, blood money where this gold did you find?
In the reeds and the rickets where the river does wind.

Son, my son, I see your face no more
You left all your coins you found on the shore.
My daughter, my girl, why do you cry your red tears?
We have enough money to eat for three years.
Blood money, blood money where this gold did you find?
In the reeds and the rickets where the river does wind.

Cadance, the butcher finally paid off his rotisserie
Where he got the pay is still a complete mystery
Mordred the gravedigger works 20 hours a day
More red veiled brides walk the aisle for his pay.
Blood money, blood money where this gold did you find?
In the reeds and the rickets where the river does wind.

Blood money, blood money where this gold did you find?
In the reeds and the rickets where the river does wind.
