Forgive me for asking, and this is only the second thing of yours I've read, but is this your original work? I notice the reference to Traditional Scottish song; did you perhaps vary the original? I know I shouldn't need to know, but I do! It stilled my heart.

Oh, thank you for saying so, but not really Strictly speaking it's a 'filk' of the traditional song, so not remotely original. I merely adapted the lyrics to the situation. There was an Evil!Sam challenge, but poetry rarely makes the cut in the Supernatural fiction world.

The original lyrics are various, the version I started with is here:

There's a modern tune that I heard on Sirius radio that got the thing into my head.

So you can dance to it, though it's a bit grim to sing along to.

So glad you noticed it!

Oh, and P.S., there's a companion one for Dean in traditional sonnet form. If you like sonnets. Which not many people are.
