Various Artists – High Noon lyrics

Do not forsake me, oh my darling
On this our wedding day
Do not forsake me, oh my darling
Wait, waitin' long

I do not know what fate awaits me
I only know I must be brave
And I must face a man who hates me
Or lie a coward, a craven coward
Or lie a coward, in my grave

Oh, to be torn twixt love and duty
Supposin' I lose my fair haired beauty
Look at that big hand move around
Nearin' high noon

He made a vow while in state's prison
Vowed it would be my life or his'n
I'm not afraid of death but, oh
What will I do if you leave me?

Do not forsake me oh, my darling
You made that promise as a bride
Do not forsake me oh, my darling
Although you're grievin'
Don't think of leavin'
Now that I need you bymy side

Waitin' long, waitin' long
Waitin' long, waitin' long
