Jack of the Shadows

I was trying to find the lyrics to the the song "The Jack of the Shadows" that Mat's mercenary company sings in Robert Jordans Wheel of Time Books but haven't had any luck with google. Anyone know of a website that has it?

Are these them?


Jack of Shadows, nocturnal outlaw
Daemon of darkness, brother to the night
Jack of Shadows, what's he hanging out for?
King of the dimensions, the other side of light

And when he passes
He casts shades of mystery black
Flowing like molasses
It's only Jack of Shadows on his way back
To the kindom of thieves
Before the skies crack

Jack of Shadows, cloak of constellations
Draped around his body, blanking out his face
Jack of Shadows, don't believe in God, he
steals from the future, fades without a trace

And when the flames flare
Flickering forms of velvet dark
He plays his games there
It's only Jack of Shadows, he's lit up by a spark
To run into the umbra , as fast as a shark

Jack of Shadows, ultravoilet eyesight
Giving him the vision that cats-eye infrared
Jack of Shadows, watch him as he flies right
Through all of the umbras, quicker than the dead

And when he passes
He casts shades of mystery black
Flowing like molasses
It's only Jack of Shadows on his way back
To the kindom of thieves
Before the skies crack

Jack of Shadows, Jack of Shadows
Jack of Shadows, Jack of Shadows
Jack of Shadows, Jack of Shadows.......

Unfortunately not but thanks for trying. The small part I remember goes something like this:

We'll toss the dice however the fall,
and cuddle the girls be they short or tall,
then follow young Mat wherever he calls,
to dance with the Jack of the Shadows

When asking a WoT question, makse sure you ask a WoTist :D Actually I don't remember. Go ask the hardcore WoTists at www.wotism.net in their General Discussion forum. It's set up the same as here (albiet an older version) so you'll have to register. No big deal though. Any WoT fan worthy of the name must accept they are the ones that know.

And don't forget to check out the theories and answer my question on the Age of Legends weapons thread!

and cuddle the girls be they short or tall,
then follow young Mat wherever he calls,
to dance with the Jack of the Shadows
We'll drink the wine till the cup is dry,
And kiss the girls so they'll not cry,
And toss the dice until we fly,
To dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

We'll dance all night until the moon runs free,
And dandle the lasses upon our knee,
And then you'll ride along with me,
To dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

We'll sing all night, and drink all day,
And on the girls we'll spend our pay,
And when it's gone, then we'll away,
To dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

There's some delight in ale and wine,
And some in girls with ankles fine,
But my delight, yes, always mine,
Is to dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

We'll toss the dice however they fall,
And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

If we are going to practice necromancy, why can't it be more like Zelazny's Jack of Shadows?


See y'all at the Dung Pits of Glyve! :yes:
