Roy Orbison – Scarlet Ribbons lyrics

I peeped in to say good night
Where I saw my child in prayer
"Send for me some scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for my hair"

All the stores were closed and shuttered
All the streets were dark and bare
In our town no scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair

All the night my heart was aching
Just before the dawn was breaking

I peeped in and on her bed
In gay profusion lying there
I saw lovely scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair

If I live to be a hundred
I will never know from where
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair
