    "Blackberry Blossom" Lyrics

    Can you tell me what happened to the blossom
    The blackberry blossom when summertime came
    The blackberry blossom, well the last time I saw one
    Was down in the bramble where I rambled in the spring
    The bramble was wild, I was torn by the briers
    My love, he wooed me as I lie there
    With a flower in my hair and my cheeks aflush
    It was a blackberry blossom from the blackberry bush

    When I picked a berry I didn't miss the blossom
    The blackberry blossom was white as the snow
    But the berry that it brings is sweeter than molasses
    And black as the wings of an Arkansas crow
    The Arkansas crow is a devil and a demon
    Known for his cackling and his screaming
    Driving away the swallow and the thrush
    From the blackberry blossom and the blackberry bush

    I was picking berries when that crow flew above me
    Carrying my lover's soul far away
    Now each spring I lay a blackberry blossom
    By a cold gravestone on the Arkansas clay
    The Arkansas clay is rocky and hard
    With weeds grown over in the old graveyard
    And the day settles down to an evening hush
    Over the blackberry blossom and the blackberry bush
