C                                   G   G7                                                     C
Ribbon of darkness over me,   Since my true love walked out the door
C7                         F        C               G                  C
Tears I never cried before Ribbon of darkness over me.

C                                         G  G7                                              C
Clouds are gatherin' o'er my head That kill the day and hide the sun.
C7                                                  F      C                G                   C
 They shroud the night when day is done.  Ribbon of darkness over me

    Dm                             C           Dm                                        C
         Rain is falling on the meadow Where once my love and I did lie
     Dm                                      C              Dm  Em   F    G
         Now she is gone from the meadow.    My  love  goodbye.

C                                   G     G7                                                     C
Ribbon of darkness over me. Where once the world was young as spring.
C7                                                        F     C                G                   C
Where flowers did bloom and birds did sing. Ribbon of darkness over me.

C                    G      G7          C           C7     F      C     G     C
(whistle)

      Dm                             C     Dm                                        C
         Here in this cold room lyin' Don't want to see no one but you.
      Dm                                 C       Dm   Em  F    G
         Lord I wish I could be dyin'      To    forget    you.

C                                            G    G7                                                    C
Oh how I wish your heart could see How mine just aches and breaks all day.
C7                                 F       C                     G                     C
Come on home and take away This ribbon of darkness over me.


C                                          F       C                    G                    C    C    C    C
Yes, come on home and take away This ribbon of darkness over me
