Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never cried before
Ribbon of darkness over me.

Clouds're gathering o'er my head
It chills the day and hides the sun
And shrouds the night when day is done
Ribbon of darkness over me.

Rain is fallin' on the meadow
Where once my love and I did lie
Now she's gone from the meadow
My love goodbye.

Ribbon of darkness over me
Where once the world was young as spring
Where clouds're bloomin' birds did sing
Ribbon of darkness over me.

--- Instrumental ---

In this cold room lying
Don't want to see no one but you
Lord I wish I could be dying
To forget you.

How I wish your heart could see
My mind just takes the breaks of day
Come on back and take away
Ribbon of darkness over me.

Come on back and take away
Ribbon of darkness over me...
