Silver Dagger Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Don't sing love songs, you'll wake my mother
She's sleeping here right by my side
And in her right hand a silver dagger,
She says that I can't be your bride
Verse 2
"All men are false", says my mother,
"They'll tell you wicked, lovin' lies
The very next evening, they'll court another,
Leave you alone to pine and sigh"
Verse 3
My daddy is a handsome devil
He's got a chain five miles long,
And on every link a heart does dangle
Of another maid he's loved and wronged
Verse 4
Go court another tender maiden,
And hope that she will be your wife,
For I've been warned, and I've decided
To sleep alone all of my life
