I Am Stretched On Your Grave

Based on an anonymous 17th century Irish poem entitled Táim shínte ar do h'uaigh, "I Am Stretched On Your Grave" has been recorded by such artists as Sinead O'Connor, Kate Rusby and - perhaps most famously - Dead Can Dance.

The song chronicles the sad tale of a man's morbid devotion to his deceased love,
whose grave he refuses to leave.

I love Dead Can Dance ... thanks for sharing this video - it was a wonderful start to my day. Ashe. Ashe.
