Kingston Trio – Scarlet Ribbons (For Her Hair) lyrics
(E. Danzig/J. O. Segal)
I peeked in to say goodnight and I heard my child in prayer. "Please bring me some scarlet ribbons, scarlet ribbons for my hair."
Searched all night, my heart was achin', just before the dawn was breaking.
I peeked in and on her bed in gay profusion lying there, scarlet ribbons, lovely ribbons, scarlet ribbons for her hair.
If I live to be a hundred, I will never know from where came those ribbons, lovely ribbons, scarlet ribbons for her hair.
