Scary murder ballad: if you don't pay the guys who work for you, bad things may happen

Lamkin is a wonderful old story song about a "Lord of the Manor" who gets a castle built and then stiffs the mason and sails away leaving his wife, daughter, and baby behind to face the piper, so to speak. I loved putting this song together out of three separate versions of the tune and I loved writing about it. The Celtic duo the Pratie Heads (me and Bob Vasile) recorded this a couple years ago on our album "We Did It! (Songs of People Behaving Badly). You can hear it free at our Bandcamp site:
