Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

Album: Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (1988)
  • Here they stand brothers them all
    All the sons divided they'd fall
    Here await the birth of the son
    The seventh, the heavenly, the chosen one

    Oh oh oh oh

    Here the birth from an unbroken line
    Born the healer the seventh, his time
    Unknowingly blessed and as his life unfolds
    Slowly unveiling the power he holds

    Oh oh oh oh

    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son

    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son

    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    Then they watch the progress he makes
    The good and the evil which path will he take
    Both of them trying to manipulate
    The use of his powers before it's too late

    Oh oh oh oh

    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son

    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son

    Seventh son of a seventh son
    Seventh son of a seventh son

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    Today is born the seventh one
    Born of woman the seventh son
    And he in turn of a seventh son
    He has the power to heal
    He has the gift of the second sight
    He is the chosen one
    So it shall be written
    So it shall be done Writer/s: Stephen Percy Harris
