Hank Snow – 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 o'er my head, they chill the day and hide the sun
They shroud 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 blooming, 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 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...
