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 over my head
They chill the day and hide the sun
And shroud the night when day is done
Ribbon of darkness over me

Rain is falling 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 bloom and birds would sing
Ribbon of darkness over me

In this cold room lying, I don't want to see no one but you
Lord, I wish I could be dying to forget you
Oh, 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 this
Ribbon of darkness over me
