Song Meaning
Verse 1
Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me
Verse 2
Clouds a-gatherin' 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
Verse 3
Rain is falling on the meadow
Where once my love and I did lie
Now she is gone from the meadow
My love goodbye
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
