Giant Malediction Lyrics

Conall's second tale described
An encounter with a giant
After falling into a cleft

The giant had lost the use of one eye
And the hero claimed to be a healer but
His true goal was to blind the monster
To bide his time and save his life

The giant cursed and roared in rage
When tricked out of his remaining sight
Promising to boil the warrior alive

After darkness came
The giant began to doze
Giving Conall time to climb
Out of the hole

Goats were pinned at the top of the cliff
And the champion devised a plan
He slaughtered the buck and
Quickly donned its skin

The bleating of the goats
Awakened the giant who realized
Conall had entered the pen
But being blind, the giant felt
Only the buck's skin
As the hero crawled away

"You have bested me boy
Victory is yours
Take my ring as your prize"

Conall was flushed with pride
And placed the fine silver ring
Upon his smallest finger
Once placed, try as he may
The ring would not be removed

The giant roared,
"Where are you ring?"
And the ring spoke aloud,
"Here am I"

Running toward the sound of the ring
The giant sought his meal
Conall thought quickly
Removed his knife,
Severed the finger with the ring,
And tossed the ring over the cliff.

The giant went running after
His screams trailing behind.

You see my king
That adventure was surely more dire
Than the loss of my sons
The tale was considered,
And another one of the sons was released
