E
I came upon a butcher, 
         A
he was slaughtering a lamb, 
E
I accused him there 
       B7
with his tortured lamb. 
          E
He said "Listen to me, child, 
A
I am what I am 
E        B7               A
and you, you are my only son." 

/ E /

E
Well, I found a silver needle, 
A
I put it into my arm. 
E
It did some good, 
B7
did some harm. 
E
But the nights were cold 
       A
and it almost kept me warm, 
E    B7                A
how come the night is long? 

/ E /

E
I saw some flowers growing up 
            A
where that lamb fell down; 
              E
was I supposed to praise my Lord, 
                 B7
make some kind of joyful sound? 
           E
He said, "Listen, listen to me now, 
A
I go round and round 
E         B7               A
and you, you are my only child." 

/ E /

E
Do not leave me now, 
        A
do not leave me now, 
E
I'm broken down 
B7
from a recent fall. 
E
Blood upon my body 
    A
and ice upon my soul, 
E            B7              A
lead on, my son, it is your world.

/ E / E /

Thank you. I only heard this song recently and I've been looking for the words for it ever since.
