Corpus Christi Carol
Jeff Buckley Lyrics


He bear her off, he bear her down
He bear her into an orchard ground
Lu li lu lay
Lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

And in that orchard there was a hold
That was hanged with purple and gold
And in that hold there was a bed
And it was hanged with gold so red

Lu li lu lay, lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

On this bed there lyeth a knight
His wound is bleeding day and night
By his bedside kneeleth a maid
And she weepeth both night and day

Lu li lu lay, lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

By his bedside standeth a stone
Corpus Christi written thereon.

He bear her off, he bear her down
He bear her into an orchard ground
Lu Li Lu Lay
Lu Li Lu Lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

And in this orchard there was a hold
That was hanged with purple and gold
And in that hold there was a bed
And it was hanged with chords of red

Lu Li Lu Lay
Lu Li Lu Lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

And on this bed there lyeth a knight
His wound is bleeding day and night
By his bedside kneeleth a maid
And she weepeth both night and day

Lu Li Lu Lay
Lu Li Lu Lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

By his bedside standeth a stone
Corpus Christi written thereon

I really hope heaven truly exists and Jeff plays private concerts there every Saturday evening

j.walter johnson

Yes, Mabel it's all real

moscowguitarman

@David Kariu that's a non sequitur. You can have a private concert without capitalism.

Bradley Jonczyk

I hope your right. Because I'd be there!

David Kariu

That would mean capitalism also exists in heaven yay!

Bonnie Harrison

Jeff is and was our grandson and this song was played at his dad, our son in law and our daughters wedding last year!!!!! You could have heard a pin drop, it was so quiet...............beautiful.........a great soul.................

@Lizann Warner This person is not telling the truth.

Lizann Warner

My condolences for your family's tragic loss. Jeff had the voice of an angel. <3

MissJensk1

@Maribel villa rivera Yes that's true. But Jeff's Mother & Step_father haven't been together for many years. This lady is saying her daughter (NOT Jeff's mother) married Ron 5 years ago, Jeff has been dead since 1997

Maribel villa rivera

@MissJensk1 I am not sure about that. I just know he was raised by stepfather and mom and his hiological dad died from a drug overdose in 1975.
