Don Williams – Ribbon Of Darkness lyrics


Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me
Clouds are gathering over 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 would sing
Ribbon of Darkness over me
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 old heart could see
How mine just takes and breaks all day
Come on back and take away
Ribbon of Darkness over me
Come on back and take away
Ribbon of Darkness over me
