User Name Thread Name Subject Posted Lyr Req: Ballad of Cursed Anna (Jonathan Kelly) (40) Cursed Anna 01 Nov 98

I'm looking for the words, music, artist for song I heard a long time ago - early 70's - I think its called Cursed Anna.

Its a folk/traditional song some of the lyrics are below.

As i was going homeward in the early morning light
leaving far behind the prision where i'd spent the night
With no idea of what I'd done or why they'd punished me
feeling none the less relieved and grateful to be free

The path lead to a woodland far behind a rusted gate
I knew it was a shortcut if I kept on going straight
but then like out of nowhere this old wisened man
appeared holding high his one hand while the other stroked his beard.

Can any one help?
