Connie Smith — 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're gathering o'er 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 fallin' on the meadow where once my love and I did lie
Now he is 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 were would sing ribbon of darkness over me
[ strings ]
In this cold room lying don't wanna 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
La da da da dee de dee la da da da dee de dee
Hmm hmm hmm ribbon of darkness over me
