lyrics

A sickle moon hangs in the sky
And a young man travels
A narrow country lane
He knows home isn't far away

But blazing eyes watch him, oh blazing eyes watch him

Barghest Barghest
Hear its howl and you'll lose your life
Barghest Barghest
Hear its howl and you'll lose your life

As a child his mother told him
Of a black beast with burning red eyes
Which if appears before you you're sure to die
But he laughed at the tale, oh he laughed at the tale

Barghest Barghest
Hear its howl and you'll lose your life
Barghest Barghest
Hear its howl and you'll lose your life

It's when the moon slips behind cloud
That he hears the howl of the Barghest
And he wishes he'd stayed home by the hearth
Home by the heart with his mother

Barghest Barghest
Hear its howl and you'll lose your life
Barghest Barghest
Hear its howl and you'll lose your life
