My Mighty Warrior (The Linton Worm)

Words and Music by Juliet Wright

Verse 1:
The Linton Worm
He follows me again
This worm
He knows no mercy
In the end

Verse 2:
He squirms, attacks
And swallows
All he sees
Devouring all that’s in his path
With ease.

Prechorus:
He lives on the east side of Linton Hill
Ravaging the countryside at will.
I fear nothing can stop him
But Mr. Summerville.

Chorus:
Where are you?
When I need to most?
My mighty warrior
When will you save me
From this wicked worm
That tortures my soul
Bring it under control.

Verse 3:
He chases me
Throughout the day and night
Breathing lies
Until I think he’s right.

Prechorus:
Why must we endure this test
Can’t it just be laid to rest
And finally
Set us free.



Chorus:
Where are you?
When I need you most?
My mighty warrior
When will you save me
From this wicked worm
That tortures my soul
Bring it under control

Bridge:
Linton
Affects all generations
Getting bigger and bigger
To swallow you whole
He wraps himself
Around your life 10 times again
Growing all the time

Even Thor
Can’t overcome his poison
Though he tries

Verse 4:
But before you convict
Or put me on trial
When’s the last time you resisted
Linton’s smile

Prechorus:
In my frail canoe I cross his fire
To find the strength to call him a liar
And follow the song in my heart

Where are you?
When I need you most?
My mighty warrior
When will you save me
From this burning desire
That tortures my soul
Bring it under control
