Boy From Capricorn lyrics
by Brian Cadd and Glenn Shorrock
The wind blows hard in Minnesota,
across the cold white land,
a young girl's heart is quickly frozen,
gripped in winter's constant hand,
a tall Norwegian beauty with a braided golden crown,
the firey rebel daughter of the richest man in town.
She heard about an ancient people,
from a whaler's tale,
stirred by thoughts of saving souls,
crossed the ocean under sail,
armed with Christian virtue and a bible in her hand,
her life was changed forever when she stepped on golden sand.
She was the angel of the fjord and the boy from capricorn,
in a paradise of islands a powerful love was born,
and their lives were joined in union by the gentle light of dawn,
the angel of the fjord and the boy from capricorn.
The people on these distant islands always lived in fear,
of cruel men in sailing ships who stole away what they held dear,
the messenger from heaven gave them all the savior's word,
and the boy was captivated by the words of love he heard.
She was the angel of the fjord, he was the boy from capricorn,
in a paradise of islands a powerful love was born,
their lives were joined in union by the gentle light of dawn,
the angel of the fjord and the boy from capricorn.
They build their lives and so much more with children proud and strong,
two different worlds brought closer and the legacy passed on,
but fate would have the final word when he was lost at sea,
and she was left to carry on their noble destiny.
The angel of the fjord and the boy from capricorn,
in a paradise of islands a powerful love was born,
and their lives were joined in union by the gentle light of dawn,
the angel of the fjord and the boy from capricorn.
Trials of life discovered when innocence was lost,
and it happened many years ago beneath the Southern Cross.
Way down in capricorn,
way down in capricorn,
way down in capricorn,
it was way down in capricorn,
way down in capricorn,
way down in capricorn,
way down in capricorn,
way down in capricorn,
goodbye ole capricorn,
way down, way down in capricorn.
