    Ribbon of darkness over me
    Since my true love walked out the door
    Tears I never had before
    Ribbon of darkness over me
    Clouds a-atherin' o'er my head
    That kill the day and hide the sun
    That shroud the night when day is done
    Ribbon of darkness over me

    Rain is falling on the meadow
    Where once my love and I did lie
    Now she is gone from the meadow
    My love goodbye

    Ribbon of darkness over me
    Where once the world was young as spring
    Where flowers did bloom and birds did sing
    Ribbon of darkness over me

    Here in this cold room lyin'
    Don't want to see no one but you
    Lord I wish I could be dyin'
    To forget you

    Oh how I wish your heart could see
    How mine just aches and breaks all day
    Come on home and take away
    This ribbon of darkness over me
