Marty Robbins Ribbon Of Darkness Lyrics


Ribbon of darkness over me

Since my true love walked out the door

Tears I never had before

Ribbon of darkness over me 

Clouds a-atherin' o'er my head

That kill the day and hide the sun

That 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 is gone from the meadow

My love goodbye 


Ribbon of darkness over me

Where once the world was young as spring

Where flowers did bloom and birds did sing

Ribbon of darkness over me 


Here in this cold room lyin'

Don't want to see no one but you

Lord I wish I could be dyin'

To forget you 


Oh how I wish your heart could see

How mine just aches and breaks all day

Come on home and take away

This ribbon of darkness over me
