Hank Snow – Down Where The Dark Waters Flow lyrics

Beneath the moon tonight I kneel
Close to my darling's side
Her eyes in death forever closed
My sweet and future bride.

Beside some lonely river bank
Where the weeping willow grow
I'll ease my aching heart tonight
Down where the dark waters flow.

I planted on her new made grave
A tender rose with care
To bloom thru' all the lonely years
While she is lying there.

I'll place one tender kiss of love
Upon that budding rose
And bid my world of cares goodbye
Down where the dark waters flow...
