Ribbon of darkness over me since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never cried before ribbon of darkness over me
Clouds're gathering o'er my head it chills the day and hides the sun
And shrouds the night when day is done ribbon of darkness over me

Rain is fallin' 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're bloomin' birds did sing ribbon of darkness over me
[ guitar ]
In this cold room lying don't want to see no one but you
Lord I wish I could be dying to forget you
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 ribbon of darkness over me
