    Up Falling Rock Hill where the leaves swoop like bats
    I shot my brother William five times in the back
    "Have mercy, have mercy, dear brother," he cried
    But the wind has no mercy and neither did I

    I watched as his blood ran through the damp grass
    I watched as the black ants crawled through his hands
    Up Falling Rock Hill, the wind softly moaned
    And down, down came I with blood on my clothes

    Cicadas were hissing and the whippoorwill called
    But the earth didn't open and the sky didn't fall

    'Round Falling Rock Hill the wind softly moans
    And black ants, they crawl 'cross my dear brother's bones
    Wild red roses tangle the grass
    Where William, sweet William, his blood once ran

    Through the dead leaves I walk marked with blood
    And wherever I step, the night creatures run
    Cicadas are hissing and the whippoorwill calls
    But the earth doesn't open and the sky doesn't fall

    The earth doesn't open and the sky doesn't fall
