the secret of the locket lyrics – chris de burgh

in those verses of the bible,
a message was concealed,
and soon for john,
the secret was revealed;
deep in a castle well,
the treasure could be found,
blackbeard’s diamond,
fourteen fathoms down;

“have a care, have a care, have a care,

t’was evilly come by;”

though running as an outlaw with a price upon his head,
to his darling grace,
he had to go instead,
to tell her of his love and all the riches he would bring,
with blackbeard’s diamond,
and buy her a wedding ring;

“have a care, have a care, have a care,
t’was evilly come by;”
