Asylum Beckons by Allen Smith As the rain beats down, upon my brow bound in chains, the smoke prevails Within this train, Asylum calls, as my heart falls ..... a punishment My Mary & Flora I know what I have done Forgive me, I need you, come back to my arms White butterflies took you away, your guidance still denies me Be with me, stay with me, till I'm gone I have been spared the hangman's noose confusion haunts, my mind is torn, My every thought, of what I did Will stay with me, within Broadmoor Be with me, stay with me till I'm gone Be with me, stay with me till I'm gone My Mary & Flora, in the garden you should play But my memories are so clouded from fateful day White butterflies took you away, your guidance still denies me Be with me, stay with me, till I'm gone Be with me, stay with me, now that you have gone A true story of Infanticide, destitution, hope and local unrest at Coseley in the Black Country where, in 1901, Hannah Cox was tried and convicted of the drowning of her two children in the canal near Coseley Tunnel on the Birmingham Canal Navigations (Main Line). This is one of five songs telling the story on the album ‘Tragedy at the Tunnel’ available on Bandcamp. Recorded on :
