I never stole in my life

Just six oxen in Debrecen

And still they put the irons on me

My baby’s heart will be broken

 

I drove them to the market

I gave two away as a pledge

I gave two to the judge

Two to my liberator

 

When I was homeward bound

The sky opened in three directions

The stars shined upon me

Because they knew I was an orphan
