Scarlet Ribbons Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I peeked in to say goodnight,
And then I heard my child in prayer:
"And for me some scarlet ribbons,
Scarlet ribbons for my hair..."
All the stores were closed and shuttered,
All the streets were dark and bare.
In our town, no scarlet ribbons,
Not one ribbon for her hair.
Through the night my heart was aching.
Just before the dawn was breaking,
I peeked in and on her bed,
In gay profusion lying there,
Lovely ribbons, scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair.
If I live to be two hundred,
I will never know from where,
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons, for her hair!
