Know me by the light of a fire shinin' bright,
Know me by your bed where I've lain
Know me, and you might, if just for a night
You'll know me by no other name.

Some girls will bring you silver
Some will bring you fine Spanish lace
Some will say "I love you"
Some will have my face.

Some will bring you gold, babies to hold,
I'll bring you only pain.
You can know me, if you will, by the wind on the hill
You'll know me by no other name.

Some girls will die for money,
Some will die as they're born,
Some will swear they'd die for love,
Some die ev'ry morn.

I'll die alone, away from my home
Nobody knows where I came.
The stone at my head will say I am dead,
It knows me by no other name.
It knows me by no other name.
